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.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
