I was driving around the East metro today, where some Snows have been known to nest, and raise broods, and I found this one already on a nest, I will check on it in a couple weeks, and let you guys know if it was sucessfull.

in a word- gullible

10 to 1 odds that bird was a cripple and Dave thought he'd post it on FM to see if we'd believe him.

I don't!

Where do you want a goose to nest?!? Up in an oak tree?

An interesting find. There sure are worse things to find in an east metro field edge.

They don't nest in some ditch in MN, they nest on the arctic tundra with the other 5 million snows.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
