Well, due to a fresh 18" of snow (and it's still falling) in my hunting area in SD, I'll be postponing my season opening trip a week. Ug, what an cruddy spring this has been up here.

What a bummer. Turkeys are going crazy here. They have not split up, but they are fighting and very vocal. I'm seeing anywhere from 15 to 40 turkeys in a group. A heavy rain is coming in tonight and Wednesday which will make it good for the weekend, start of our second season. :D

Well, so far it isn't getting better. They ended up with 30+" from last weeks storms, and probably will pick up another 6-10" this week. High temps the past week have been in the 20's, ~30 degrees below normal for this time of year, so there has been minimal melt. Many of the roads in the BHNF are impassable. A friend got his snowmobile stuck trying to hunt this past week. If things don't improve by later this week I may have to cancel my SD trip for this year, which would be a major bummer. Have done it every year for awhile now and it's always my favorite.

Wow, that is amazing. My daughter lives in Wisconsin and laments about the snow. Sure hope you get to go to SD. All that snow could also cause death loss in the turkeys and maybe even mess up the breeding season for them. :cry:
