Big Buck Island

During the “Muskie Madness Week” (report to follow) I ran across this fellow swimming to an island I have now named “Big Buck Island”.

Hmm……interesting rack with the dripping velvet…… many points?
Ten at least……….much bigger though than the mount in the lodge……….

He was moving pretty fast, probably didn’t appreciate our company!

With plenty of splashing and crashing noises in the bush, he was soon gone. May he live long and prosper!

  1. I was told that having any velvet this time of year would be unusual. Perhaps what looks like velvet could be some weeds or grass the big dude picked up on his way into the lake?

    No riding for me…….the water is a might chilly.

  2. Small by Muskoka standards but a nice buck all the same. Moose hunt just days away!!! Make sure the Yamaha is up for the trip Gordo!!

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
