    What does an "ice eater" look like, please? Never heard of such a thing.

    Added a couple dozen more redhead, bluebill, and buffies to my diver rig, getting them rigged up for longlines, repurposed some old decoys into coots and finally got all my waterfowl stuff organized at my new house. It’ll be go time after next hitch

    First group of birds in our flooded field. About 100 geese and 3 greenheads. It's a beautiful sight. PicsArt_10-25-09.06.42.jpg

    It was a good day of cutting rice straw and brushing in pits, going through decoys and finishing the day off helping my friend up here cut beans and get everything moved to the next field for tommorow

    It’s over boys. After spending a week in the prairie pot hole region it’s obvious the good old days are long gone and what we’ve experienced the past 4-5 is the new norm.

    Corn is king, and there is a lot of it. From Kansas City to Jamestown. You can pick any cut corn field in the Missouri River valley, airdrop yourself in, and literally pick up 3-4 complete ears of corn without taking more than 2 steps in any direction. After talking to some of the locals about waste grain it was obvious, speed is the name of the game. The faster the harvest, the better. Waste grain is an afterthought.

    I’m well aware a duck can not live solely off of corn, and there is other factors at play. However, without 10” of snow from St. Louis to the border there will never be another Grand Pass!

    And enough frigid cold at the same time to lock up every possible piece of open water north of the Ohio river and the state of Missouri

    Sure ain’t much in Arky. Few specks, teal and pins but that’s it. Figured there’d be a few snows around for this weekend to go along with the specks but nope, not a single one that I’ve seen

    I haven't went north but you can see that from western KY. Combines started here Labor Day weekend. The plus side here is that when they start that early, the remaining grains will sprout. I'd say you can make the same claims for further up north to some extent.

    Heck when you're running combines at 8mph shelling corn, you're gonna blow it over the screens. Farming is a pecker measuring contest. Who has the biggest, baddest tractor/combine. Who can run the fastest?

    In Manitoba, Canola had begun to regenerate from the early harvest when they finally got some rain. Some fields it was 6" high and all leafed out again and in some places blooming again. Good for the deer and moose for sure.
