Dr Roger Strand of New London MN passes

He was my mentor on Wood Ducks for over 3 decades. He wrote the "Stoney Ridgelines" in the Minnesota Waterfowler which was a quarterly magazine for a couple of decades published by the MWA, long before the internet. Back then the main way to learn new things was to read about it in magazin...

Soft water Fishing 2023

So did anyone get into the Walleyes on Opnr? I didn't even go. Just too much stuff to do and dislike fishing in the rain. Was going to go trout fishing yesterday morning - that got nixed after a call for help from an aquintance. Oh well... Crappies were in the bite last week on Tonka. So how did you...

Re: 2024 Vikings

1st time in his time here that KC will have the same guy in his ear and same O system for a 2nd year. Could prove to be very beneficial. We have a tough schedule this season. The D is the big ? mark after last yrs 31st rank. If the D is in the cellar again, lucky we go 8-8. If they can get to 21st r...

Re: Duck Clubs

Sounds like a pretty good Fathers Day or birthday gift for some of you with your pops still here on earth.

Re: State Park Tour

Go NOW this week to Mineopa SP just W of Mankato to view the waterfall there.(major rains the last week).
You may want to hit Blue Mounds or Pipestone on the same swing in the SW region while it's relatively nice(not overly hot) out, maybe a single over night stay in SW MN.

Re: Weather 2023

Temp forecast and precip thru July is expected to be average in the upper midwest. That'll be a nice if it actually happens vs the severe draught of last year. SW Minnie got nailed the last 3 days. Reminiscent of 4 to 5 yrs back. Comfy (straight W of Mankato) is flooded. Photo is 3 day totals for SW...

Re: Weather 2023

A wacked out spring temp wise, mostly cold, then that string of record breaking high 80s. With the snow melt, some areas got much needed melt to fully refill the wetlands, some partially, and some hardly made a difference. I have one 5 acre wetland that went up maybe 4". The mallard nest pipe i...

Re: Post a picture you took in the last week.

Today.
Switched out a rotting pine WDB with cedar, rerolled the MHN and lifted it up 2', added a PG under it.
This spot has consistently produced both Mallard and Woody nests since I put it up 8 yrs ago.

Re: Post a picture you took in the last week.

A5321194-4A23-4680-A6D8-83570D8F90D2.jpeg I got the hen houses up. 6’ posts and just over 3’ of ice. I got some tan/brown outdoor carpet and wrapped the houses with it, I got sick of doing the straw so I’ll see how this works. They still have straw stuffed inside them. Mallard hens are territorial....
