Look at the cash you saved Del. I don't know if I could ever do that.

The bird population looks to be taking a hit too. I would guess that all wildlfe will be hit hard with the massive flooding.

Its sad to see all the damage and people that have to deal with these floods.

i kind of surprised myself! grin,but neither one had what i was looking for.

i'm afraid our pheasant pop is going to be very low( atleast in our area) . we may get a third hatch , but usuaully that one is small anyway.

some of the areas here are really bad. between those that lost thier homes, and bussinesses; then all the thilth and chemicals left behind. not good! del

I'm in Decorah. We're headed down with rods to the Upper Iowa here in town for the first time since the flooding. Some guys have been out working the new undercut banks that weren't there before.

As far as the economic impact on parts of Iowa goes - the only words to describe it are "devastating" and "tragic". The whole country is going to feel the impact of diminished ethanol and food production, just like we all felt the surge in construction material costs following Katrina.

Decorah itself got off light; just inconvenienced, really, but Cedar Rapids, Des Moine and thousands of acres of agricultural land are feeling huge, uninsured losses.

So anyway - delmuts, you have far more discipline than I do!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
