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.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
