How do your area's wedlands look?

Postby tredwards » Thu Jun 21, 2012 9:33 am

Hey guys just thought I would start a topic that can updated through the summer/fall of this year. I know last year was horrible, everywhere was dry, some areas exceptionally. So I think it would be valuable to keep the fellas up to date on how your area looks.

I live in far NC Iowa, between Mason City and Spirit Lake. So far this year we have been very lucky, a good amount of rain has fallen. we have received 3 inches in the past week alone. Wetlands are crest and better for the most part.

Im also in far NC Iowa, nw of mason, and its very dry here. Im part was bad management to 1 large sloge, but all others areas close by are well below a good depth. Your lucky with that rain, misses my area every time.

North Central Iowa picked up about 3 inches in the past week, some places less some places more. Overall a pretty lucky pick up, but we will need this to continue over the next 6 weeks, which is unlikely. Hope other places got a good shot too.

We picked up another good inch rain over the weekend.... that makes about 4 inches in the last 2 weeks. Keep doing your rain dance it seems to be helping here.

Got some decent rain where I live the last 2 days, but the marsh I usually hunt got very little, it's still bone dry.

Has anyone heard of any counciling for all of us pissy, depressed waterfowlers? The only thing that could make this fall worse is if Iowa Football had a horrible offense...... Wait... where is my gun?
