Just called up to morris point today cause we're heading there in the morning and they advised us to bring snowmobiles if we wanted to go off the roads much.

I wouldn't advise any offroad travel with anything other than a snowmobile. Was out there ten days ago and got stuck several times just to get a quarter mile from the main road; then the blizzard hit and the roads drifted shut. Went out the next day by snowmobile but couldn't go more than 10 mph because there were three foot drifts everywhere, packed hard as concrete. With a truck you'll drive on top for a few feet and then fall through, and then you're really stuck. Tough going until we get some warmer weather and those drifts melt down.

Had a friend who was up there this last weekend. Bablers have a new road plowed. LOTS of snow offroad (they got stuck). (Big time I guess) "Stay on the roads" was his advise...

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
