Asked Tim 'bout it & he said that they've been there almost 20 years & are just getting tired of it. A lot like farmin he said in that they have to be there everyday. Besides their boys are old enough now that they have quite a few grandkids they'd like to be able to spend more time with. He does a lot of stuff on the side in order to make some extra $ so it'd be pretty tough to have just the store for income IMO.

yea pretty much what i was thinking.

just like the turtle lake store. my brother must of talked to the couple that owns it. thye told him they both work away from the store but have someone to basicly run the store. quess after the smoke clears they usually net 20 grand a year!!!!!!

on the other hand, since there are new owners at hayslips, that place seems to be busier then i've seen it in years!!!!!!

Seen a bunch of red on some of the Maples along CR 35 yday on our way back from gettin the paper, they were all on the north side of the road over by all the resorts on Bowstring. Quite a few of our Ash & Birch along the drive have been shedding leaves for most of the last week too. Pretty early!! :crazy:

:happy1: :happy1: yeppers..........Y-boned them out. Y-bone is in the pickling batch!!!!!!

had o good time up therewith wifey and friends of ours. we went to a sunfish lake.......only got 22 but i wasnt much interested in more sunfish so i wanted to a seek and search mission.

the pike you see pictured came from a lake i've fished before but havent been on in a lotta years and had the bug to try it again.  these fish were nice chunky fish.

then we hit up another lake and got a batch of smoming and picklin nords!!!!!!!! of course we had several  :toast: and  :campfire: up there!!!!!!

the maple trees where really changing colors and dropping leaves.............not many other trees changing yet.

  :scratch: :doah:  :moon: Seen 2 > 26" in the last 2 seasons & they're both still swimmin. Easier to find 9-10" gills & 13-15" crappies here.  :sleazy: I don't keep many of those either :tut:, I usually keep the little ones just like you. :sleazy: :nerd: :nerd: :evil:                         ;) :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Ya, they like those! I've had really good luck with a green with black stripes old Lazy Dazy from the 60's...got an entire set of those that were my Dad's. Rippin' 'em fast thru the weeds always got a hit. Caught all the ones in avatar pic on that one. Don't use 'em anymore; now a keepsake. Plus, they sell for some pretty good $$ to collectors!  :shocked:

Forgot to mention in the GM thread that I talked to the old boy from DR that has a place over by the NW access on Bowstring & said that I noticed that they had 1 of their Eskimo augers in their ad. He pointed to a whole display that they had out already & said he had started to set up all the ice fishing stuff. No tents yet, that was all still portable blinds.
