    Heading out to west/west central MN to pound the public land, like we do every year. Hoping the crops come off early, the wind is calm, and the air is crisp. Can't wait.

    I will also be out to west/west central MN pounding public land. Corn still has some green in it around my house. I think crops will be a factor. Off to SD the following weekend for their opener.

    I will stick around southern Minnesota to hunt some private and public for our opener. Then it is off to SoDak the following weekend.

    Has anybody seen a crop report for Minnesota? Are we ahead of last year? The average? If I find a report I will post it.

    Way ahead, Joel.

    Google USDA crop report - MN. 12 day's ahead of 5yr average. Harvest (some grains) @ 8% 2wks ahead of 2017.

    Thanks, Joel.

    Recovering from rotator cuff surgery (8wks) and hope to shoot the week of Oct. 22. Dr. gave me a green light last week, said I'm coming along well ahead of normal.

    We did have a report from the farmer: appears the birds "may be" down from a dismal last year. We'll find out on the 24th.

    Have a great season, esp with that great dog of yours!
