Its winter in Dakotas
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour,
At thirty Five below.
Oh how I love Dakotas
When the snows up to your butt
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose gets frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never...
The Keystone oil pipeline had a small malfunction yesterday to the tune of an estimated 210,000 gallons of tar sands crude oil spilled near Britton SD. Bad deal and it just got worst for the outdoor types (hunters) as it was quoted by a local area man the "it sure messed up a field that was...

Green Needlegrass 20%
For all of you who hunt in SE/SC South Dakota: Delmont SD ravaged by large tornado this morning --much damage and reports of injuries. Storm then tracked North just missing Parkston, Ethan and weakened and went thru Mitchell with no reported damage. Sad Mothers day for SD. :(
Have waited years to decide to get a bird dog--this is the year (summer) and guess what--I now have a pair of pigeons building a nest in the 40 x100 ft loafing barn--it's a sign I tell ya.:D :thumbsup:
Well the numbers are in on the local PF predator control project.
First some information. SD game fish and parks says the average pheasant nest produces 8.2 chicks so for every predator you take out of the habitat :)
