Eagle update
Sorry to say the eagle died of lead poisoning.  Just want to let you know that there is fishing tackle and  ammunition that can be used that does not contain lead.  We can all make a difference by using these products when we hunt and fish.

The rescue of an Eagle
Here on the north end of Dixon Lake an eagle was spotted sitting on a log not moving.  Jerry our nieghbor came upon him while grouse hunting.  He and Lyle netted it and it did not put up a fight at all.  After a night in the back of Lyles truck they thought he may have lead poison as his fecies was green.  When I went to take this picture Lyle completely opened up the back of the truck and the eagle made no attempt to flee.  He was one sick guy!  He was taken to Grand Rapids and then will be transported to the Rapture Center.  Good luck old fellow, we wish you well and thanks to the

Bear season is killing me.
After a month of over a hundred hours in a tree and just as many miles walked back and forth lugging my gear and bait around I'm stiil contemplating giving up.  I just can't get any of these bears eating on my expense to come in during the day light hours.  Every time I put bait out it is gone by the next day, the huge logs are rolled away and the tracks are good sized.  Several times I said I'm done but if you know me I just can't quit.  I'll continue to try until season end and then I'll just have to fill 3 deer tags like I did last year, Hah! Will miss the bear meat in the freezer this year as we love it best of all wild game.  Here is just one of the bears I've been hoping to meet in person. I named him Fatass! Cuz he ate all of 100#s of powder sugar donuts I left.  His mate is around and they have a yearling cub with them. 
Happy birthday Tony, I miss you, can't believe you've beeen gone 20 yrs.!

Lyle and Kathryn owned and operated a Minnesota Resort for 11 years prior to building this unique home.  Together they designed, built and created all the unique features in this exquisite round home built in 2007.  They added the tree house in the spring of 2015.
This area is important to them as Kathryn grew up in these woods and so did her father and grandfather.

 Lyle owns a cabinet and construction Business.
 Living in the Chippewa is a dream come true as both enjoy the lake and woods and all the activities they provide.  Both love to hunt & fish and take pride in the home and property.  Kathryn has a variety of gardens and really loves the out doors and tending to them.  Another passion is caring for and grooming the ski trails, it takes a lot of hard work but is well worth the time spent.  If the temperature is above 0 Kathryn can be found on her ski trails everyday in the winter. Caring for every aspect of the property is what drives her and puts her in her element.
