Rather ride my Harleys to but its Minnesota and if nothing else its going to get cold soon. Put my bikes into storage and the snowmobile is siting in their place and ready to go. I know its going to get cold I just hope we get some snow with it this year. Sure would like to get more than the usual 2-300 miles on the sled this year.

Well no Halloween snow storm and not even any cold enough weather to snow for at least the next couple of weeks. This keeps up I may have to load up the bikes and go south for the winter.

My sleds are home, but with the forecast, didnt see any reason to rush and get them ready to roll.

 

I did go out last Thursday and brush the trail from the house out to the state trail (@ 2/3 of a mile).

Boy did the wind storm and aftermath do a number on it, took quite awhile and some serious chainsaw work to get it all cleaned out.  All ready to go now tho.

Hey it's coming. I saw a "sign" in the woods last weekend. The biggest, fattest, most obese squirrel I have ever seen in my life waddling around by my Deer stand. He's getting ready for something really big and bad! ;):lol:

Ive got one of those sitting at the bird feeder right now eating like a pig. Not sure that is a sign winter is coming but he is definitely taking advantage of the nice weather to fatten up.

I also have never seen so many red squirrels working so hard to gather food of late, and they are not even afraid of you at all. something wicked is coming our way.

late freeze is a good thing, the average late freeze ups in the metro, I believe 12 out of 15 winters have been cold and snowy.

Hmmmm  looks like the snow started to come this year and now left around here. Forecast isn't looking promising either. Heck if I didn't have my bikes in storage I would have taken a ride today. Hope the snow stays up on the range as it landed in my yard up there and just might take a ride up there when the trails open on December 1st

Saw lots of tracks in the ditches up in Xlake this weekend, but with the rain it will all be a bout gone, except the plow drifts. I spent 3 hours blowing the driveway on Friday, and should have just left it, haha! :) Now if the lakes will just be able to freeze before the next snow...

    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
