Ohhhh Yeah!!!! It's time to kick off the iceshanty ice season for 2017-18! Might be tough for some of you to find photos from last season. Or heck even the season before that with the poor ice conditions! Dig up your most awesome ice fishing picture and post it here on this thread.

For the contest this year please add a little text or story about the photo. *This will be included in the judging.

Top 10 I select will win a 3 month militia trial package.

Might as well start it off, this pic is from the end of a very warm day on the ice at Strawberry Reservoir last season. My auger had melted down into the ice pretty far with the sled & sunkissed mountain in the back ground looked like a good shot. Great day on the hard deck

Opening day on my favorite place to fish.  Arrived in the morning and it was completely fogged in and it stayed fogged in all day until the last 30 minutes of sun.  Western Montana had an exceptional amount of snow this last winter and there was 3 of snow on the level which made it challenging to get to the ice (walk in only). Once you got to the ice it was easy traveling though.  Ive fished this place literally for decades and for the last 30 years, opening day has always been the same group of friends fishing. This winter was different as one of my fishing buddies who has been fighting cancer for the last 25 years was unable to fish opening morning for the first time since Ive known him, just too much snow and not enough energy to get to the ice. I told him I would try to get a decent trail to the ice and maybe he could make it out at a later date.  It turned out to be one of those days when the fishing is just a bonus and youre just appreciative to be out there.  My buddy never made it out to the ice and his battle ended early this summer. His final request of all his fishing buddies..go fishing for me, so I did, I am and I will.
PS: thanks for hosting another contest Scott:)

I snagged this picture of my buddy Brandon. It was an extremely cold morning in Michigan. -3 degrees and we both stepped out of the warm shanty to move across the lake. Brandon's beard immediately froze over. This pictures to me captured the pure joy us ice fishermen feel when out on the frozen water. Regardless of temp, or weather conditions, we are just happy to be standing on a lake doing something we love!
Hug a firefighter and feel warm all over.
