First signs of winter!

Recommended Posts

The first snow flakes of the season were seen today and with temps only reaching the mid 30s it sure is starting to feel like winter already. Its probably too soon to get the auger out but it wont be long now. I looked back at reports from last year and some of the smaller lakes connected to Devils Lake had fishable ice by mid November. If you have any questions about Devils Lake fishing send me an e-mail and hope for early ice!

It is coming soon. Last year our opening deer season in MN was -22 on opening morning. Brrrrr. I was back at the house eating chili by about 9:00 a.m. Forget that deer stuff. When it is that cold I will buy beef!!!

Hello Mr. Dosch. Any ducks moving in with that cold weather? My dad and brother are planning on coming out next weekend for a duck hunt. Just wondering if they've moved down yet? Thanks a lot for any help.

Most of the local birds have been pushed out by hunting pressure but birds from up North have been moving in daily. Not very far across the border they got 12 inches of snow on Monday so it wont take long for the birds to start showing up. Locals around town have been hunting around Lake Alice and up North by Rock Lake and they say there are more and more birds everyday. Hopefully we can get a couple of nice weeks so the birds stay awhile. Sounds like rain the next two days, that will make feild hunting a little sloppy. I'll keep you posted on numbers of birds moving into the area.

    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
