I'd be surprised if Mud lake was not froze over? Everything in the upper valley is froze tight. Honey dew list for me tomorrow. Good Luck Stouff!! Let us know how you do!

I'm going out tomorrow down here - Supposed to be gale force winds :) Nothing better - Keeps the birds off the big water, All the little side ponds are frozen as well so the wetlands should be great!

LA and I went down and shot a few on the Portage. Nothing quite like hunting at -5F to make you question your sanity. Didn't know it was quite that cold 'til we got back and I checked the NOAA weatherstation in Portage on the computer.

I was thinking about you all when I came across the Palmer flats last night. A beautiful moon on a frozen landscape. The moon was reflecting off the ice and open water on Knik.

Whoooweee were you right!

The lake was compeletly froze over..... kinda.


We had to push our boat across the ice to get to the slew... half way out KRAK! The ice gave way and half of me went in! :eek:

Luckily I wore wool socks and had a change of boots...

Other than that, it was a freakin blast!! Thanks Sam for takin me out!!!

Here is a picture of me out there, wore my snow camo over my max 4, worked pretty well.

I got two ducks too :mrgreen:

Stouff,
Glad you got a couple of ducks, and that only half of you went in when you broke through the ice!! Bet you froze your toes that morning! Nice camo. Thanks for the pic.
