11 posts in this topic

What's the better...um..sick day this week. The day it's raining and snowing or the day after? As the forcast stands now I'm thinking of taking Wednesday off.

Well...If I were you, I'd come down with more than just a flu bug and take both days off grin.gif Maybe get pneumonia or strep throat???

Ironman, If I could pick a day to come down with scaup-itis I would pick Thursday, give the stiff NW winds another day to move some birds. Either day looks great though, rain, sleet, and wind.....perfect. I will be out thursday and friday, save some for me. Good luck

if you want to take a couple of days off, i would try tomm. you can get a lot of birds right before the front passes through. remember if its so bad out there you dont want to be out there the ducks dont either. there is a book called duck hunting in the 20 or 21 cententry (sp?) by 2 guys from wisc. you can get it from the local lib. good detail on when to hunt as fronts come through. big changes in the pressure are good signs. try to go just berfore the pressure drops (tomm) and after it settles thrus. hope this helps and good luck.

Well, the forcasts hour by hour, for now anyways is saying rain should be changing to snow right about shooting hours. So I think I'll be going tomorrow. I anticipate..or rather hope for a good shoot. Btw, I have an open seat if anyone is interested. Nice blind, around 50 dekes, boat and motor. Shoot an email..I'll check it tonight. dlluginbill @ aol . com

I've already switched with a fellow worker,I don't have to be until 12:00 thursday and work till 7:00 not a bad option to have when mother nature throws us a curve ball like this weather front.

Good morning glad I decided go. Im going again thurs morning,

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

    • Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
