Was down at Rice Lake today…..Goose Lake and Big Lake are Bone Dry….the new pump station is not gonna be finished….There are 6 blinds over there that probably may not be hunted this fall…I think it was about 8 years ago when this also happened…The folks who drew blinds on these lakes were unable to hunt that year….

I went to Banner Marsh this week to train the hound and they were in desperate need of water as well. A couple of the blind sites that we saw were basically dried up. I don’t know if they control the water level there or not, I know they’ve got a pump house but I’m not sure if it’s ever used.
