Who thinks this map is true? I'm a bit skeptical im in central MN there saying 8-11 inches? I'm waiting till Thursday if it still looks like a decent amount the sleds are coming to the front of the shed... to ride around in the yard!:)  Sounds like it wouldn't be around for long. But the lows for weekend look like we may be really cooling down the lakes... we might even be making some ice!

We're down to a predicted @4" here in the Duluth area.  With the warm ground and the expected rain to start, I'm even wondering how much will actually accumulate out of this now.  


Still gonna get the blower and sleds fired up tomorrow just in case (they are still saying that there is a 50-75 mile deviation possible in the storm track, heavier snow is forecast to stay NW of Duluth)

I'm heading in to Ground Zero area Friday evening for the last weekend of Deer hunting. :eek:


Good Luck!!  

I just hope the rain that comes first doesnt decide to freeze down on the roads.

Junior has his first B-Ball tourney this weekend here in Duluth, so we will be in and out of the blinds both days.

Rain just turned over to snow here on top of the hill in Duluth.  Even had some Thundersnow a few minutes ago (pretty cool seeing lightening bolts thru driving snow showers!)

They have upped the forecast for Cloquet to 6-12 now, so we will see what we get.

Well it was true. I was stuck in my buddies cabin for two days up by Outing MN Deer Hunting with no power and only a fire place for heat and there was easy 12" or more inches where we were. Pretty cool to see the power guys come down the wire line checking for downed trees in a tracked John Deer 4 wheeler! They were going through any thing!

Wasn't all bad passed on 8 Doe's and a small spike Sunday morning before heading home at noon.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • 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. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • 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
