Hey Browning24,

I don't know about Terry but I'm from Billings and was in Hysham,MT today and there is no white stuff out here yet. Weather today was in the high 40's with little to no wind and overcast with spots of sun. The forecast is looking to be the same all week with a chance of rain here and there no snow in the outlook yet. So the ground is still brown out here. That cold front you saw this weekend in MN was here last week but no snow was dumped here except in the higher elevations of the Rockies.

Good luck on your hunt!

Chris

Sure thing! What date are you traveling out? I will keep you posted up until that date. Have you hunted out here before?

One word for the wise is if the road sign says "Impassable if wet or snow covered" beleive it! Some of the dirt roads out here can be a challenge if you don't have super aggresive mud tires and a winch. Plus the ranchers get p*ssed if you tear up the roads to thier cattle ranges.

Later,

Chris

Hey Browning,

Still no white stuff on the ground. Forcast for the week is warm with records being set tomorrow with temps near 70. The rest of the week is high temps from the upper 40's to 50's with a chance of rain here and there. Bring lots of water for hiking!

The mules are becoming active all day now. Saw a bunch today and they are all chasing does in the wide open fields in the middle of the day.

Later,

Chris

Hey Browning,

They have updated the forcast out here today it was warm but looks like it will be Cooling down for the rest of the week.

Good luck on your hunt! There are plenty of does across the whole state that I have seen so far. The does seem to be keying in on staying in the bottom of coulees with water in them or near streams, but I have also seen them grazing in the wide open areas. The mules look like they use the coulees, and irrigation ditches to travel from place to place. Be stealthy when coming up on the coulees and you should be alright. I stopped counting the deer that I have bumped out upland hunting there are so many.

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
