Snow cover

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about coming to ND and doing a little yote hunting and was wondering about the snow depth around the Leonard area. Or, any reports SW of Fargo.

A coworker of mine has been out the last couple of weeks in that area and has had some luck. As far as snow goes I was in the davenport area this past saturday, and all the fields are at least covered. I would think they should stick out pretty good. I hope that helps.

Yep, I was over by Kindred yesterday and found the same thing. Definitely enough snow to make it relatively easy to see dogs. Also, not too much snow to make getting around tough. With the really cold temps, your timing might be really good. They should be starting mating season pretty soon, but I think you'll get there just a little before it starts, which should mean distress calls should still be effective and with the cold temps, you might be in the money. Good luck!!! Let us know how you do.

Not to much around Leonard I would doubt Casselton didn't have too much. But between Casselton and Valley there gets to be more. We probably have between 8-10" in valley. Of course the ditches are another thing grin.gif.

Harvey, The fox are doing the mating thing. Got one the other day by Moorhead , Shot her right out from underneath him.I thought I got a double cause when I hit her they were stuck together and spun both of them around and wiped them out. Then he unplugged and took off and made me look like a pretty poor shot. It was kinda cool.

No, change in plans for the next few weeks as I have more fishing trips lined up. The others in our group are a little bummed out that we will probably not get up this winter due to my plans.

    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!
