The ducks need your help. Go to the Ducks Unlimited web page where they have a pre-formatted message to your state members of congress. It is expressing your concerns about the wetland reserve program. It is very simple and fast, everyone please do your part in saving our wetlands.

Surewood, I was just going to post this exact same message. If you want to read more about it Dennis Andersen wrote an article in the Strib about it.

Let's help and do our part to save this program. The Ducks Unlimited website (ducks.org/farmbill) make is very easy to write to your representative.

On a related note from a state program standpoint...State programs such as the Reinvest in MN (RIM) are going to be competing with a lot of other issues/programs for state bonding money on 08'. It's not too early to begin discussions with your state legislature's and tell them how important it is to put a priority on funding these sort of programs. There are some shorter term (20 yr) RIM contracts that are expiring this year and without any funding, the lands will go back into production. Go to the MN house and senate websites and contact your legislature's.

daydreamer, I read the article from Dennis Anderson, it's good that he is willing to keep people informed. He's right that many people complain but very few do anything about it. Everyone please do your part as like many other people, I want to be able to take my son hunting some day in the future.

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
