For all the hunting widows left at home and those of you that don't go out for the big event yourselves, Tim Minich gives us a glimpse into what I imagine, is part of the thrill of going to the hunting camp each November. The sun shining through the nearly leaf-less trees in this shot, gives you a feeling of nirvana. See, now, you all thought that the hunt or the camp companionship was what drew your significant others away for two weeks every year, when in all reality it's just the beauty that awaits them each morning in the U.P. woods!

Makes me want to take a walk in the woods. But not this time of year.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 07:46 am:

I love pictures of woods. We don't have any near here for over 50 miles. If there is one thing I miss from MI, besides water, it's the woods.

By Mr. Bill on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 08:05 am:

But another great picture.

It seems as though every season here in the UP is lovelier than the last. This week's weather is a blessing to be outside, though perhaps too warm for the deerhunter's liking.

I can almost hear the leaves crunch under foot and feel the crispness of the air.
Good Morning from south Georgia

By Bill, Lena Wi on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 08:35 am:

I see the lack of Snow will make it another difficult hunt.

By Darkstar on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 08:48 am:

Silly Mary, Nirvana is south of the Bridge, about 10 miles west of Reed City.

By Sarah, Central WI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 08:55 am:

Good Morning from drizzly Central WI. Although I love autumn, I can't wait for SNOW!

By Capt. Paul in Nevada on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 09:15 am:

Good morning from Nevada.

Dr. Nat will not be on here for a while as her father had quintuple (sp?) bypass surgury on Friday that I'm happy to say was successful. She will be in Houston TX through Thanksgiving and will return to Vegas (and Pastycam) on the 29th. I will also return to Houston to be with the family for Thanksgiving so it should be a nice time.

As for todays pictures, it reminds me of a time where even if I didn't get a deer, it sure was nice just sitting out in the woods away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A time collect ones thoughts and enjoy the peace and serenity of the outdoors. Obviously I won't be out this year, but next year, look out elk!!! ;-)

By rko, Anderson Indiana on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 09:19 am:

As usual the 15th is here and here I set in Anderson, Indiana longing to be in the UP. Staring out into the woods. Thanks for the cam picture... probably as close as I'll get this year. I guess I won't shoot myself after all ! tee hee. Ps.. Is that a 10 pointer in the very back of the pic? Maybe we'll see a deer.

By Dave F on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 09:21 am:

Good morning from Elkhart Indiana. Were about ten miles east of South Bend IN. Todays picture looks like it could have been taken around here. Our yard is completely covered with leaves.

I like the changes that have been made.

Glad there's no snow to help the hunters :) haha

Prayers be with the two chassell students families that died Saturday, and with the three others.

By Alan Nuss, GA on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 09:52 am:

I really wish I was back in the UP.

By maijaMI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 10:08 am:

What happened to the Chassell students!?

By maijaMI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 10:10 am:

to Capt Paul and Dr. Nat: I'm sending you good wishes. My Dad had a quintuple bypass over 30 years ago. He lived to be 90.

By troll in Eagle Harbor on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 10:27 am:

I've had some of my best naps while sitting in the blind..

By JAD, Oskar, MI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 10:32 am:

Reminds me of McLain Park, except there it is mostly pine, with sun filtering through. Yesterday there were couples with their dog, a party of women (with dog), a fast-paced walker, several folks alone--a good number of folks just out enjoying the Fall, the sound of The Lake, and crisp air. What a great park. What a great time of the year!

By SarahK, MI Troll in FL on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 10:51 am:

Nice Picture, Woods look inviting.

By Lori... commerce twp on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 11:05 am:

I believe this is the accident you asked about Maija, in reference to the Chassell teens.

By DH, Flushing, MI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 11:33 am:

Back to work today after spending 4 wonderful days in the UP! Beautiful fall weather permitted several hikes through the woods like the picture to see several waterfalls. Thanks for the picture to help ease myself back into work.

By Kathy from Whitmore Lake/Cheboygan on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 11:44 am:

There was less traffic on my morning commute, & Opening Day might be a factor. Even though SE Michigan is pretty built-up (understatement), I know of at least one husband & wife who are hunting grain-fed whitetals on their land this morning, down by Manchester.

By maijaMI on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 12:41 pm:

Thank you, Lori.

By Ahmeek Cliff Dweller on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 12:51 pm:

Nice photo, I can hear the crunching of the leaves under some unlucky hunters feet as he goes after the big one! Hi to SM2034!

By Gary, CO on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 12:59 pm:

Crunch, crunch, crunch. They'll hear you coming from a mile away. Might as well cover the forest floor with potato chips. Hunter:unlucky, Deer:lucky.

By Saginaw on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 04:15 pm:

My honey is sitting out in his blind today looking for the 12 point he knows is in the area. He bagged a 13 point and an 8 point last year. So, he's looking for the 12 and a 10 this year to beat his total points from last year.

By Stuart in Michigan on Monday, November 15, 2004 - 07:53 pm:

I hope you get some snow up there.

December 24th would be nice! :->

By Vicki Rae from Mi. on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 08:51 am:

Oh, to be a kid again, eating deer burgers cooked over an open fire while sitting on the beach at Little Traverse and enjoying the beauty of Lake Superior!!!

By Cindy Wolff MI on Friday, November 19, 2004 - 08:52 pm:

... I need to go home!
