Their campsite appeared to be Duncan Narrows.
Sure looks like it. Matches up well with some older pics I took when I was last there. The water is much higher though.

Re: Landing a kayak at Chipp. Harbor?

I knew I had a pic. Chippewa Harbor. Should give you an idea of what to expect.

Many years back, we put in/out to the left side of the dock in Tom's photo.

Re: Daisy Farm concrete foundations

Just a guess, but there was a CCC camp location at Daisy Farm in the 1930's. Perhaps the concrete foundations are related to that.

Re: Malone Bay kayak day trips?

We stayed at Malone for several days back in the 90's. I was paddling a 17' Klepper double with a solo-seat in the middle of the boat. You can easily spend a day, maybe longer, exploring Siskiwit lake. The east end is very different from the west end. One afternoon, we paddled to the west end, beach...

Black Male Wolf found Dead

From today's Detroit Free Press. The black male wolf that came from Ontario has been found dead. Apparently it's collar has been in mortality mode since March. They're not sure of the cause of mortality. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2019/05/29/gray-wolf-isle-royale-canada-dead/127...

Re: How is the Paddle from Moskey Basin to Rock Harbor?

As others have said, it all depends on the weather. That being said, this is a pretty safe, even boring paddle. To add a bit of variety, try the narrow channel immediately south of Tookers Island. Sheltered water and visually interesting.

Re: Landing and Launchings at water accessible campsites

You should have no problem at both Duncan bay and Duncan Bay Narrows. You may have to jockey for position, but there's ample space to land. Ditto for McCargoe Cove. Merritt Lane could be a challenge because of limited space and a somewhat steep shore. Pickerel Cove has a small shore, but it's "sandy...

Re: Message from Wolf-Moose Study Regarding Instagram Account Update

They've been pretty active on Instagram (lot of cool pics) and will forward questions to those who are on the Island so they can answer. Some Instagram contacts are a total waste. Not this one.

Re: 2018/2019 Moose-Wolf Report now Available

Yep, Parvo back in the 80's/90's, inbreeding more recently. Also some unfortunate accidents (alpha male and female of one pack falling into an old mine maybe 10 years back). I found it interesting that some "mystery tracks" were spotted this winter. Apparently a wolf (or wolves) crossed over on the ...

Re: May Weather

I've been to the Island a few times in mid/late May. Depends if you're near Lake Superior or inland. Near lake Superior, temperature will be on the cool side, definitely jacket weather. You may even see the occasional mound of snow in the shade along the lakeshore. Away from the Lake, it can be warm...

Re: Wolf update

From the Isle Royale Facebook page. April 19th: "P is for Possible Pairs? As the resource management team has been tracking the new wolves, it's been interesting to see where they go, and with whom. We can't be certain of anything yet, but here is what we know. The Michipicoten alpha male 009, relea...
