2 posts in this topic

I know some one here has to live out near birch lake on the babbit end and i think i may have seen someone here already post about this but i was wondering how the ice is over there... Inches of ice would help trying to find a spot for tommorow i know its late notice but i though someone said like 6-7 correct me if im wrong??? Any help would be appreciated, i know ive heard guys are out there already but im a chicken and nead more ice than them so any report as of this week helps. Thanks!

I'm looking at Birch out my window right now. Before the snow there was 4-6 inches of ice over most of the west end. However, the snow has brought up the slush and any travel has to be careful. I live on Spring Ridge Road, and there are soft spots all over my shoreline right now.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
