Sick of this stinkin warm weather

Postby phutch30 » Tue Dec 27, 2011 11:47 am

Im so sick of this weather. Not just because all the ducks are scattered all over the Northern hemisphere, but its messing up my trapping too. This week Ive caught skunks and coons in my bobcat sets. These pests should be sleeping. Im also getting stressed about the ducks. No snow low to upper 40's all last week and this coming week. Darn birds arent here and the ones that are arn;t flying until just befor the end of legal or waiting till just after. :mad:

Not to mention it's not doing much good on the ice conditions for us Hard Water Trollers. Last year at this time, we had 18 inches of solid ice and yesterday we had 6. The bigger lakes are still dangerous to fish

I was coyote hunting yesterday in an area that typically you need a snow machine to get around in and never saw more than 4" of snow. I also saw some numnut driving his truck on Clark Canyon Sat afternoon :no: be reading about him in the paper soon no doubt.

We had about a week where it was finally game on but you had to be ok with divers mixed with your puddlers.

45 degrees at the boat ramp today...feels like early October...sucks. I think the vast majority of birds are still up in Canada.

I am getting used to the warm weather but today the wind was blowing fifty mph plus. What a pain in the rear. Lucky the ducks didn't seem to mind much, not full limits, but not too bad.

We were shooting ducks as they flared up and they were getting blown 60-70 yards away. The wind was crazy for most of the day. Same thing the ducks were moving all day. They didnt decoy great but when they did it was sure fun.
