The way the weather man is talking, you should find a few inches of fresh snow over that crusted snow by the weekend.I'm hoping to get out and try blue earth, wantonwan, le sueur, martin, meeker and maybe Mcleod counties this weeknd(ok, probably not all of them). Hopefully somewhere I can find a spot that isn't ruined by crunchy snow!
Ever try snowshoes?!I'm not sure about the freezing rain in SW MN, but the area I hunt has received about 6 inches of heavy wet snow and there is more coming. It might be 8-10 inches after its done. Hunting in that is going to be extremely difficult. Its just saps my energy so quickly.
Denali MSR. Get a shoe that can support a wide range of weight. See the black fins in the pics? Those are removeable to add/reduce support as gear load and snow conditions change. You can see what they mean to my dog....and they ain't getting out of his sight...especially with fresh snow!Tell us what brand and model is working for you.
Sometimes good old-fashioned laziness can inspire "genius!" Took me a couple years to figure out it's a lot easier to wait until you get to the field to put snowshoes on, because it's a real hassle trying to drive while wearing them!!Good work Sunsets! Getting a limit of late season birds is a great accomplishment! And thanks for the tip on the snowshoes, leaving the boots strapped in is genius.
