Cooter:

That pastured valley makes me salivate. Good looking place to set-up shop for awhile.

Good work on the bird. We've only killed one bird that was missing a spur......but a dandy it was, just like yours.

That pasture was full of turkeys this year. Usually its better in fall but the past few years its been real good in spring again. When I first started hunting the area was unbelievable then my uncle and as of now every surrounding patch of timber has been logged. Its great for deer and I think some of the old cuttings have matured enough where there is a good diversity and the birds are coming back more in spring. Not just the pastured areas but we also have been planting some rye, corn, clover, etc plus some new hay seeding to help. I've been hunting elsewhere the past 6 years but may have to reconsider! To be honest, I've been bumped from one good spot to the next but have always been fortunate enough to have great areas to hunt.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
