Cold front coming through

Recommended Posts

Looks like a good couple days to be out in the duck blind. Nice cold front coming through with strong northwest winds and chance of snow. This should definately bring some birds down. I'm jealous for all of you who get to take advantage of it, I work frown

I'll definitely be out there tomorrow morning. Although, by the sounds of it, I'm going to need to tighten the cap another notch or two. shockedgrin

One of my duck boats, my 870 Supermag,a bunch of my decoys, some of my camo clothes, and a couple of boxes of shells went out of town with my #3 son yesterday. Meanwhile, I'm working 12 hour night shifts. My equipment is having more fun than I am this year. But with the NW winds bringing down the geese, I'm going to take a bunch of vacation time and see what I can do.

Yea looks like a good day if your looking to go swimming. For one, these winds are dangerous (tip your boat dangerous), second the first cold front of the year usually backfires (the temps are goin to be in the 50s to 60 by mid-week). Good luck to all of you that brave the weather, but I'll be sleepin in waitin for the REAL cold snap!

Be safe!

Real cold snaps send birds right through MN in a matter of days. I personally like hearing a warmer forecast now, get some new birds in the area and keep them here a while. By the way, depending on your location you missed a good morning of hunting.

During the week since i don't have Many options of places to hunt in the cities i tend to spend most of my school evenings out in the rice lake area and tonight was the first night i have seen divers in the area and there was definatly i lot more flocks of mallards and geese around so I'd say the front definatly pushed some ducks down hopefully there is still a lot more to come

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • 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. .
