Cold front coming through

19 posts in this topic

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.

The cold front definately pushed birds down. Wave after wave of mallards/geese were coming into the dekes on sunday!

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

    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
