4 posts in this topic

I am just wondering if it is worth the trip up to osakis to try for some divers this weekend. Is it froze over and are there any ducks up there

I thank you all for you help.

Nothing down here where i hunt so i need a last trip of the season.

I was NW of there, but not by far. Not many diving ducks left around where I was, and this is usually diver mecca area. Some cans and buffies I saw, but I didn't all that many goldeneye yet, and I was surprised. Maybe the golden eye are still there or not quite down yet, as I usually see (hear) lots during second deer weekend.

I will say this, it sure looked like most of the lakes, incuding big lakes, were closing in fast. That was Sunday. Good luck whatever you end up doing, hope you find them!

Weekend before last we had some shooting on Minnewaska at Glenwood. This past weekend it was nothing. Saw a few hard core hunters out a few days ago but never heard a shot out of them. We have open water shore to shore but no birds. That may change tomorrow night as low is supposed to be single digits. Sorry to say it's over. Now if you like geese, Morris and west is hot right now, also Herman and NW. Have heard reports of ducks west of Graceville.

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
