big muskrat houses?

8 posts in this topic

I was up last weekend doing some duck hunting, I noticed the muskrat houses where taller than I remember the last several years. Do you think that could mean we are in for more severe cold than usual? Or maybe less snow?

My guess is because the water levels are way down.

I think it means the word is out on fur prices. They know there's up to a $10.00 price on their head and are fortifying the compound!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
