They are Coming

Recommended Posts

The forecast for Thursday and Friday, in Manitoba and northern North Dakota is for snow and blowing snow, with high northwest winds. The low temps will be in the teens.

This should be the push we are waiting for !

Good luck and be safe on the water.

Just got back from western MN. Hunted the snow and wind for three days and we saw less than 200 Mallards; total.

We are still in shock. Hardly any divers in the area but a few geese.

8" of snow near the border. The fields are snow covered.

Are they still in Manitoba?

More like Nebraska or Missouri. smile

Hunted from the SD border to central mn the last 4 days. Was solid Ducks, Geese & Swans heading south for the last 4 days. Talked to a contact in NE SD, and he said pretty much everything is gone, and they'll be ice fishing this week.

Was I the only one that had any luck this weekend? The best duck hunting weekend of the year for me so far. Got 7 mallards and 2 spoonies with my dad on saturday and I shot 4 greenies on Sunday morning before the vikes beat the pack. Lots of giant flocks of mallards (20-30 birds) that came right in without hesitation. The key was waiting them out and staying in the blind past 9:30 am; saw very little before then and then it was very good for the next hour or so. I love strong Northwest winds and frigid mornings when everything that gets a little wet sticks to any metallic surface inside the boat grin.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
