first real warm weather this weekend certainly brought out the first batch of the blood sucking little demons...always trying to bite you in the eye area or under your hat...well this brings to light something i came across years ago while fishing in canada...up by atikokan area...we were just getting things ready at a resort for a day on the water ...guides were standing at the end of the dock preparing the boats ...but as they were standing there talking ...i noticed something kinda unusual...they had there hands in the air...one guide would put one arm down ...few minutes would go bye...then he'd put that one down ....and put the other hand over his head...not wanting to appear nosey or stupid.....curiousity got the best of me...i finally asked the guides what they had there hands in the air for....there answer"...see these black flies?....you'll notice they always fly around the highest point ...so...duh!....the arms raised in the air!.......sure enough...the blackflies were flying around there upheld arms(hands)...and not that many around there heads....these were native indian guides...guess they certainly knew the little tricks through the years in the outdoors....since then ...i've tried this trick ..it really works!...thanks..jon

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
