Paddling with friends
I brought along a steripen for the first time, it only does a liter at a time, but it's a nice option. We typically gravity filter with a platypus, then treat with a little chlorine for knock out any viruses. (Three of us work in healthcare).
The group caught some walleye, northern, and rock bass today.
I heard three gunshots at 11:10 that night. Presumably the nuisance bear on shell lake, one lake over. We almost took the 220 yard portage over there, glad we missed the hangry bear.
