    I don't think that'll be a problem. Yes, the wetness is widespread & severe in places, but I think it's been wet for so long that the birds would've been forced to nest on higher ground to begin...

    If it warms up, it should be a great nesting season. It's when it's wet & cold that nests/broods have a tough time.

    Awesome! I'll bet, for several different reasons, that's one of the most vivid memories you have, period. And it'll stick with you until the end. So great.

    So...did he fly....away??

    As another Jackrabbit, my dead bird/muzzle loader story above was also near Bkgs. Barely south of Lake Campbell on the road that used to go by the old roller rink.

    As big a pain as a wet spring can be for various reasons, it can go a long way toward a successful nesting season. But...it would help even more if it'd just warm up a bit.

    I think we're in for a real late harvest this year. I'd put the trip off until as late in the season as you can.

    Drove from Sioux Falls to Okoboji (IA) and back yesterday. Virtually no planting done yet. At best, I think we're in for another late harvest.

    They're real nice shotguns. Haven't owned one personally, but my buddy had a 16 ga. o/u. It was gorgeous & a dream to shoot. He wishes he'd never sold it, & I wish I'd been to one who bought it.
