Canadian Deer Hunting: Caution P.G. Rating

…Moderators Comment….The following post does not represent the views or, indeed, the eco-friendly outlook we here at VBL tend to value. It has been left as an indication of the long winter and it’s affect on certain VBL guests. Let’s hope for warmer weather so that Andy Lewis can get back to normality….and fishing…… By the way, the only connection to VBL is the fantastic shirt that Andy is “sporting”….only available here at the lodge!…

Most VBL guests don’t get to experience the long Canadian winters or appreciate the adaptations that have to be made in these harsh conditions. Deer hunting for example. I know this may sound hard to believe, but the snow gets so deep that you have to shoot them in the fall and go back to harvest them in the spring and hope that the wolves haven’t devoured them (see earlier post on this topic). So, while Gord was tanning himself in Mexico, we figured it was time to go back and harvest that monster shot in the fall. Go no further if you couldn’t handle the photo posted by Gord with the treble hook buried in the hand. Look away now, this isn’t for the faint of heart!

Hmmm, what’s this (no this isn’t this month’s contest)??

Let’s get a rope on him!

What’s that smell??

This should make a fine addition to John’s bare cabin wall (notice the VBL jacket).

Hand me Ed Gein’s Axe

Now there’s some tender canadian viddles

Now don’t say you weren’t warned. Cabin fever can be an awful thing.

If you like GREAT fishing, hospitality and affordability, Vermilion Bay Lodge is highly recommended. I have been making the trip to Vermilion Bay Lodge for the past 10 years and have never once been disappointed. If you like great walleye, northern, musky and trout fishing, this place should not be overlooked. The fishing has been excellent… no matter what time we went. Gordy and Susanne are wonderful hosts that will make you feel right at home. Check it out – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
