I used to be a "regular" over on the DNR Forums, but abandoned ship about a year ago, due to a couple of morons who had ATV's and snowmobiles on the brain. Every ill in the world was caused by ATV use according to these nutcases. Bird nesting, grouse numbers, lack of large-racked bucks, trout stream degradation, floods....... all being destroyed by the evil internal combustion engine.
The folks who run the Forum there either couldn't or wouldn't put a stop to the flaming, so I got sick of it and left, to come here. They used to have upwards of 100 posts per day on a variety of topics. When I looked in there one night last week there were something like 20 messages, 16 of which were on ATV's. Rick and the guys are to be commended for monitoring this site to keep it civil. Just goes to show that a private outfit can do things better than a government agency any day of the week.

I like the new look. I took me a minute to find the "lakefinder" link but then I was OK. smile.gif I agree with you about the forum over there -- nothing productive ever gets discussed. However, because of some very real First Amendment issues they have very little discretion when it comes to monitoring and deleting posts.

The Minnesota DNR rolled out a its new web site today most of the functionality is the same but it looks pretty cool. You can find it at www.dnr.state.mn.us or I think Rick has a link to it on the main page.

    • 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.
