Anyone seeing a good population of divers around the area still...I was told i should always be Duck hunting instead of Deer Hunting cuz thats when the most ducks are around...so i was going ot give it a go this weekend..I hunt a Large body of water so i am not worried about ice....just wondering if anyone has been seeing any birds around?

I hunt deer next to a 600 acre lake, and I have been seeing VERY few birds. A few whistlers, some mallards, and that is about it.

Geese, on the other hand, are very plentiful.

Joe, I haven't seen many ducks at all this week. A few here and there last week but my impression is they have pretty much pulled up and headed south. Okay by me....the temperature at my cabin is 13.4 at the moment! Yikes!

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
