Moose are funny animals. Every once in awhile one of them will take it in his head to go on walkabout. Several years ago they spotted one eating vegatation on Lake Minnetonka just west of Minneapolis. That one was heading south. They tracked it as far south as Oklahoma. I never heard what happend after that but I do know that we are seeing more and more encounters with them in urban areas. This is probably due to sound wildlife management and mild winters that have caused a mild population increase. I should think that in years to come we will see more moose sightings.

I've heard that when moose head south, like the one going to Oklahoma, it is usually because of a worm parasite in it's brain. It makes them head south for whatever reason. I do beleive it is ultimately deadly. Moose numbers are actually down and the experts don't know why. Particularly in the NW part of the state.

The mild winters increase the chances of moose getting the parasites. If we can get a couple cold winters in a row, we'll then see an increase in the moose population. With the forest fire last year in the BWCA they'll have lot's and lot's of food to eat in the next few years.

Would be nice seeing the numbers increase for once. Maybe someday i would have a chance to hunt for them then.

I heard the moose #'s are down to, due to the really warm summers up narth. They pant too much from the heat and don't eat enough to put on the winter fat. Then winter comes and they are weak. Wolf Food I assume or just die of sickness. I saw it on the news a couple months back or somewhere, but I do remember hearing that. frown.gif

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
