Quick question on coon hunting. Is it easier for the dogs to pick up coon scent when the grass is wet?

In most cases, the higher the moisture and humidity the better the scent trailing will be. Very dry conditions make scenting more difficult.

higher humidity makes it hard to smell for a dog but the moist conditions are better like due on grass the humidity holds the scent to the ground more then when its not humid just think when its humid how hard it is for us to breath now just try and think how a dog is when smelling a cold track when the humidity is up

I do agree with houndsman, I guess my reference to humidity was about there being dew on the grasses. HIgh humidity and heat makes it hard ot breath no matter who you are.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
