There are definitely wet fields in the area but it's not too bad and getting better. It's worse further North in the Interlake.
We've been hot and dry for about a week now and nothing but hot and dry forecast for the next week. Take that for what it's worth though, LOL!.
Most farmers in that area are just starting to get going with the harvest. It's way late due to the cool, wet summer we've had. I'd imagine they'll be going like mad very shortly if this weather holds.
Plenty of places to hunt ducks without a boat.
Where are you staying?

Yup, I'll shoot you a PM later tonight or tomorrow with a few places that you won't need a boat. You may want to bring quad though.

That's an understatement...

I took the girlfriend up to Hecla for the weekend just gone by (building up some brownie points for when I make her a hunting widow for the next two months) and I couldn't believe how wet it was up there. It hadn't rained in like 2 days and everyone we talked to was so excited about the nice weather.

On the bright side I saw an absolute ton of birds. There were even in flocks (50-60 strong) all over the place pretty much anywhere that was cut alfalfa (the only crop I saw cut up there).

It really made me excited for next Tuesday (6 more sleeps).
