Ralphie, sorry to read about the recent trials and tribulations of a Minnesota Banana Belt Chicken Wrangler, but on the bright side it will make for a good entry in the autobiography.
Jerry, it seems that the Walleye opener up here was pretty much a bust. My wife went to the cabin yesterday and all she and her fishing partners caught was a couple perch. It was very windy and cold out on the lake with difficulty finding any cooperating fish of any species. I am glad I had to go to pigeon race shipping.
Pigeon race today from Northfield. My birds lack training time so will likely be down the race results, but it is early in the race schedule with time to develop into a more competitive form.
