I don't if you saw but the South Dakota bird counts are out and its ugly.  Down a whopping 45% from last season.  Evidently the drought has brought pheasant "carnage" to the state.  Its possible that the counts for North Dakota are even worse.

The drought we had  here in S D was pretty small relative to the areas of North Dakota that were dry. I was up in  South Central ND back in July and it was awfully dry up that way south of Bismarck. And I know further to the west it was even worse up that way. Sad part is that there was also good sharptail hunting as well as pheasants up that way also.

MN opener looks rough.  USDA reports that not even enough corn has been harvested to make tally a mere 1% rate and only 22% of the soybeans have been harvested.  Combined with high winds and a chance of rain, I think I'll wait until there's a better chance at seeing some birds than Saturday.

I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

Sounds like bird numbers are up what are you all seeing?

I went 6 times in December last year and saw no less than 300 birds.  Most of those were hens.  If the majority of those survived, I expect it to be even better.  Of course, I can't actually verify that most of them survived until I see them and/or hunt them.

      I just tore down a CS2250s chainsaw and when I was putting it back together I found a part on my bench that I don't know if it belongs to the saw or not. Does anyone know if this is a part that belongs on the saw? I looked over a parts diagram and didn't see it, but I don't want to try running it if it's an important part. It's a little bigger in diameter and thickness than a quarter. Thanks

      Never fished it myself but have always heard the best laker water is on the BW side of the lake.

    • Fishing DA Range and nort
      Anyone know where to catch pout.   We have been staying nights and keep lines down 24-7 on the lake while we are there, caught several on LOW but cant seem to find them here.   Maybes its to early yet.    Any location to anyone suggest searching for burbs.
    • Fishing DA Range and nort
      Yep, think it was his 2nd biggest, he was pumped.  With COVID shutdowns we have been LOW twice and vermillion 3 times, headed back on weekend.      He's diehard, wants to camp in a portable out there this weekend.

      Have been fishing LOTW for many years now, but often wonder about fishing rainy lake. But there never seems to be any info on winter fishing. Is it because no one does it? Would be interested in knowing if there are plow roads out onto the lake, places to stay or any often info. Thanks.
