I am sitting here in a blizzard and we have not had a killing freeze yet. This has been a very strange and tough year for South Dakota people in agriculture. Starting late in January we have had the toughest winter since 1997. It did not quit when it should have so everything was a month late. We lost a month and have had a hard time catching up. Then we have had rain quite often so getting things done when they needed to be done was difficult to impossible. Now soybeans have a lot of snow in them which will have reduced the yield significantly assuming they can be harvested at all. Getting corn to dry will take many sunny days, plan on standing corn for quite awhile. There is much stress in the ag world between prices and work stress it is not good now. So when you come hunting and start asking for permission to hunt, understand that there might be some grouchy landowners. Also please be careful with the roads especially the dirt section lines. Thank you.
