i drove by moose lake today, and made my way the round about way to bass lake also. i spotted goldeneyes and a small bunch of bluebills on moose, and some divers of some sort on bass lake. i have been watching every day, and this is the first i have seen of them here. that is a good sign. some years they don't even make it til the season closes. with predicted lows towards -5 degrees for tomorrow night alot of the lakes will slam shut providing the wind stays down. that will make it alot easier to find birds. just look for open water. the trick can be just finding a place to set up. many of the area creeks that harbor open, running water are so low the current isn't enought to keep the water from freezing. many are froze right now. rivers and big deep lakes that historicaly stay open late will be your best bets.
the hardiest of the northern birds are still to come, but they do require open water, so we could end up with a butt load of birds all at once.
lots of snow on the ground, so snow type camo will be in order in most cases too.
first things first though, i am going to slam a 200 grain 35 caliber remington projectile into the side of a nice buck this weekend, then it's off to have my way with the remaining northern birds. life is good, play hard grin.gif
be safe, jigglestick.

Life is good, isn't it Jigglestick? Especially when game is abundunt. I hunted all day yesterday and got 2 mallards, 2 bufflehead, 1 bluebill, and 2 geese. There's been a lot more birds showing up in the last few days. The geese were darn near landing on top of me while I was heading out in the evening! Maybe I should use a long handled net. grin.gif The flowage I hunt is large. Waterfowl use it as a safe refuge at night. Morning flights of birds number into the thousands. Always leaveing 10 minutes before shooting and arriveing 10 minutes after, you could set a clock by thier flight times. Too bad our airline industry didn't work that way also. smile.gif I have no idea where they go every morning, I wish they would stay and fly in circles around the lake! I'll do an evening hunt today, capitalizeing on "prime time" for the returning geese. My problem is that I plan to hunt a few hour in the morning, but after countless "just another 15 minutes", it's dark!!

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
