Fall Conditions?

How is this dry weather going to affect the pheasant and the Duck populations?

Any ideas?

Here in the far southwest corner the pheasant hunting is going to be every bit as good as it was last year. I'll be shocked if the roadside counts don't show a lot of birds here. I'm seeing all kinds of birds with some very nice size broods included. We'll see. The ducks are different story. Don't really know what's out there but do know the ponds are getting dryer every day. Time will tell.

123FISH IS RIGHT ON. WE HAVE NOT HAD A 1" OF RAIN IN 6WKS. THE PHEASANT HUNTING WILL BE GOOD. DUCKING COULD BE TOUGH. LET'S HOPE FOR SOME AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER RAINS. IF WE DON'T GET ANY RAIN SOON I'M NOT SURE IF THE RIVERS WILL BE RUNNING.

As long as there is dew on the grass in the morning, the pheasants will be okay.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
