I checked two south facing taps today and they had a VERY slow drip.  Last warm spell I got around 30 gallons for 35 taps and next to nothing since.  Probably this weekend it will run again but probably stop again during the week if the forecast holds.

Depending on how today and tomorrow go I may put some taps out.  I know a few people who tap around Feb 14th every year regardless.

That's a good one, wonder what that ice pack will look like on the next decent day for an image after this wind?

Including surface preparation to make sure the paint will adhere, probably six hours per bird, minimum.  Now, amortize that effort over another fifteen years of usefulness...assuming I don't shoot them up too much!

What is the average percentage of your snow goose kill is juvenile birds in the Spring season?  What do you do with the adults?

Depending on timing of the migration I would say 50-75% of the harvest will be juvies but as you get later into the migration those percentages will increase.  We had a couple of shoots this fall where we never shot an adult.  The juvenile to adult ratio this year is probably the highest I've ever seen or very close to the highest.  We take the adults and process them the same way we do the other harvested birds.  Prep as many as we can to be eaten immediately and once we're sick of a half a doz ways of grilled, fried, and stir fry goose we start making jerky and have a bunch of sausage, salami, bratwurst, and snack sticks made.

I like it!  How many hours do you figure you have put into each block?

I've got some I need to touch up as well but doubt I'll get to it this year.  I need to get the trailer switched over from a fall set of mallards/canadas/snows to being set completely for snows.  Snows will be moving north across Arkansas and Missouri before I know it.

Does anyone have a pair of scotty electric downriggers they are looking to sell before I start looking for the best price on new ones?  Thanks  :thmb:

Bill, an important consideration when reviewing and comparing amperage draw values listed for downriggers is the weight they employed in the listed test. Did Scotty list the weight in the table they listed the amperage values?

Scotty has a chart where they compare different downrigger models and also lists amperage draw for the depth power and high performance series for different weight cannon balls.  I called a few other manufactures to get their specs as well.

I'm going to switch over to Scotty electric downriggers for this coming season, either new or used and was looking at the different models.  I see there is a substantial difference between the depth power and high performance series in amperage draw.  I called Scotty and for the HP series they suggest one battery per downrigger but that seems overkill especially since scotty downriggers use gravity for descent. Does anyone have two scotty high performance series downriggers wired to one battery?

I have two batteries onboard, a marine starting battery hooked to main and vhf, a blue seas battery switch and automatic charging relay and a group 27 deep cycle powering everything else.  The deep cycle battery is charged while trolling with a yamaha t8 kicker.  I currently have a couple electric cannons I've run off the deep cycle but I haven't used them much or very deep so I haven't put much stress on the system.  Will I be fine running two scotty 2100 series downriggers or should I stay with the 1100 series?  Thanks for the advice

Just got back from chasing ducks and geese in MO and realized I still had these in the trailer.  Lowered the price  :thmb:

I have five dozen headed white rock canada goose decoys, 4 blind door decoys (never used, two out of the package and two in the package) and white rock decoy bag.  Used a few times, like new condition.  Bought for when we can't drive into fields and just haven't used them enough.  Great way to get a whole decoy spread into a field in one trip, also great on sandbars.  $400
