The Clock is Ticking

The moment is getting closer. The lake is ready, the blinds, are ready, the decoys are set, and the place looks great. Again I am forced to say that if we don’t have some great action this spring, we best leave the decoys in the shed next spring. The boss has the place looking as pretty, as a June bride. I would like to describe it to you just how he has it set up but, there is no words this guy knows, that can describe, it except "pretty."

The reports are that there is over 600,000 at Squaw Creek area, That is a historic number for this early in the spring. The long range (15 days) weather forecast, is calling for some snow at the end of that period, so hoping there is a few that make it North before they, get sent back South. They, decoy so good, on the return trip. God could smile on us again, with some action like that. We are in the last week of February and that is when, we usually start to occupy the blinds. Have some hunters that are on standby with lunches packed, guns oiled and ready to roll, as soon as the birds arrive.

Spoke with a hunter, that hunts east of the Rain Water Basin (center of the state) and he seen a few flocks Sunday, and he has always started to hunt and shoot a few days before we do. So things are so close.

Spoke to the boss again this morning and he said he still has a few Memberships to fill, so if interested, please contact him.

Best to keep checking back, cause one of these days we will be hammering and filing reports, daily.

So say a prayer for the troops, daily and please check back

See Ya Carl

Spring Update

Spring is getting closer so think I should up date this. Even though, I have not talked to the Boss for over a week, I know he is busy getting the blinds an surrounding area ready for the spring hunt. When I did talk to him the other day he ask me to tell you that he has a few memberships open, if some of you guy’s are interested. There has been a couple of the older members, that are not going to take their membership and RK would like to fill these. I think it figures out that if you hunt 10 days in the fall, you are money ahead. Really a bargain, and it is even a bigger bargain, if you hunt the spring hunt. So if interested, please contact Ralph

Has been a pretty cold winter so far, and we have had snow on the ground for so long. I know that our big, snow month, February and March are still in front of us, but it is getting the time of year when we do get snow, it is gone in a couple of days.

As for a prediction on our up coming harvest/season, I am refusing to shoot off my mouth. Last year if you remember, I SWAG-ed it at some dumb number that we didn’t get closed to. Been trying to live that number down every since. I was going to tell you I was predicting just 2 birds, but was sure that, some smart A-- would remind me that I was not going to be the only shooter.

The above was written a couple of weeks ago, and for some reason I didn’t post, so will continue with an update on the update.

We have been getting several reports, of birds building up in the Squaw Creek area, so the day is not far away when we will be again burning some powder. I was out this morning and got the blaster almost installed. The Boss has been work almost every day for the last month so he says "as soon as they get here, we are ready". There has been some reports of some birds, in our area, before this cold blast that is here today. So they are eager to move and will as soon as we get some favorable weather for them. While working out there this morning, I did see a couple flocks of dark birds, but no Carp.

Think I will close and post before I forget to post again. Soon we will again be making daily reports, but until then, please remember the troops in your daily prayers.
