We were ripping the field next to the picture above. They would part to let the tractor drive through.

Green, two brands of red, and three brands of yellow. I'm down for whatever. How do you like the gator?

It's not as loud as I would like right now. As loud as it may be at times I do miss them when they're gone.

It is, without a doubt, my favorite side by side. Smoothest running, smoothest ride, and best built out of all of them I've had or used. My only complaint is the seat is narrow and only made for two people.

I guess when you think about how far they've come from the old green and yellow gators with turf tires to what they make now, it's quite a change. I didn't mean it as I thought they weren't good.

Oh yea, I remember going with dad to look at them 10 years ago and they were junk. They've came a LOOONG way since then. I did opt for green and yellow though...

The only good green tractor is a Deutz
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

I learned to drive a clutch on an old Deutz-Alice. Dad restored it to the original green.

How many birds do you estimate are sitting your fields today?

I would expect so with this cold front pushing through! It showed 18 degrees on the farmhouse thermometer back home.
It pains me to not be home hunting when our farm is already seeing respectable numbers of big ducks. We don't normally see that til right around opener. If things continue this way, we have a real opportunity at a smash mouth opener. :grooving:

They were all heading south while I was in MO yesterday. Didnt see many snows migrating but did see a few thousand ducks leaving yesterday morning heading your way. I am sure the frigid temp last night really helped push a lot more your way.

I'd say 150k from what I've seen in the air. I'd like to more than double that number in the next ten days, but I have my doubts.

At peak you guys are holding 300K+? That's crazy... That is nearly 1% of the estimated puddle duck population in the US. :eek:

The 150 is total birds. At peak we should hold 500k total between specks, snows, and ducks. 200k ducks was a routine figure when aerial surveys were conducted here in the past.
