Can't wait to get our house out in Black Bay...could be tough visibility with the high water though.

Saw my first spear house this morning west of Bagley on my way to school. 6-7" on the little lakes around Crookston/Mentor.

One of my friends emailed me a picture of a 30 inch 10.5lb walleye caught on a local lake just north of me. 5” of good clear ice. I think he sent it to me to be cruel and knows darn well I can’t cry go fishing. The lake is also good for big grin pike on the west end.

I knew where Winger was. I was there last summer. Had to visit the Ice Saw capital of the world!

My 20lb Turkey that I will be enjoying tomorrow came from Winger MN!!!

It was probably fed with “Fish Food” straight from Fish’s fields.

Where in the world did you get a turkey in Winger? Unfortunately after harvest there isn’t enough for the critters to eat being we run CaseIH grin combines and the only fields I see wildlife in are where the other smirk colored combines went.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
