Crop harvest reports Fall 2016...

Recommended Posts

OK, guys. Location, what kind of crop and when.

I'll start. Seen a guy getting started with the corn near Cannon Falls the other night. Gonna hunt a trail leading to that field this week if I get a good wind.

OK now, shoot.

Princeton area only saw a few fields that had corn picked and the beans seem to be being picked now...

Came through SD and MN into WI yesterday. A lot of the beans are out or being done now. Lots of corn still in but saw quite a bit being taken out.

Drove from Little Falls to Fargo today.  Most anything left in is corn, and more than I expected see.  Stands to reason for the amounts of water dumped in the area.

Some bean fields are so far done they're being disced for the winter.

It sure looks a lot like fall out there!  I was drooling over some of the birdy looking cover trying to see some roosters.

Actually, come to think of it, I saw hardly any ducks, some geese, no pheasants and no deer.  Huh, I suddenly feel disappointed!

I did see a coyote cross 115 in front of me on the east edge of Randall.  I guess that's something...

Was back out in bluff country in SE MN. Most corn is still standing. Saw some small strips of cut corn indicating they are slowly starting. Wacked a doe BTW.

Beans are gone, can see many ruts made by the equipment, no corn happening some fields are flooded badly yet in spots, the only gone corn is by the few that chop for cattle and even then some had to avoid the mud/standing water this is an hour north of the metro. Congrats on the doe, got me thinking tenderloins and backstraps.

Yesterday I drove from Detroit Lakes to Glenwood. Took a scenic route off the main highways. Looks like all the bean are out and the guys are attacking the corn fields. Lots of combines going but they have a lot of corn to get through....

I would say corn in my area is 80 to 90 percent gone, beans are pretty much all gone.  Combines and gravity boxes are not getting replaced with tractors and plows.  Still heavy farm traffic on the roads, be safe and respect that equipment on the road!   You can wait the extra 10 minutes to get to your deer stand if you have to follow farm equipment.  It's not worth your life or theirs to pass them in a dangerous location.  ( I see this every year)

Farmers are still contemplating their corn's moisture content around Center MN.  Debating if they want to dry it after harvest or continue to let it stand.  Of course some fields are out.

 

So I guess the prediction on whether the corn will be out by gun opener will hinge on your areas soil type and field drainage characteristics.

SE MN is slowly getting taken out. Was out to pick up some trail cams over the weekend and saw some combines in the process... Majority of the fields I saw from the road are still full of standing corn though.

Drove north to the cities today. Surprised to see so much corn still in the fields. In my area, east to the Mississippi River, much of the crops are out, west and north, many of them are still in.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
