Snow cover in Swift Co?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Haven't been keeping track of the birds much this year but we're thinking about the last hurrah this weekend.

We would be North of Benson. Wondering if somebody has current snow info. Sounded like some areas might be pretty crusty. Wondering approx. depth too.

I know, A die hard would just go! But I'm getting old! crazy.gif

I was out today, the snow in the cattails is up to my waist in spots, but then again I'm not that tall either. Most of the snow is around 18", we didn't have much of a crust still kind of powdery. Stick to the cattails adjcent to corn stubble where you can see they have been feeding and you'll get birds. If there are enough of you, try putting out a poster, they were really wild today. Good luck and shoot them in the face.

We were S. of Alberta yesterday and saw plenty of birds. Snow was about 10-12". Birds were really skittish. Tons of birds along the road for "lazy hunters" around 9. Get into the 'cats and have a ball because that's where they are during the day. I'm plenty sore today.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
