Ice conditions here at the ranch.........

Postby Rico » Jan Thu 19, 2012 7:25 pm

Teri and I checked the conditions at the two lakes here today. I was concerned about Stafford as y-day I saw an open hole with geese planted in it. My thouights were confirmed ..........all open around the pier and boat ramp. A pack of beagles had chased a doe into the lake......pretty cool. McPherson is locked up tighter than a tick......made it out past the weed line. A few pics from the adventure.......

Did the deer survive?
Fisherman's Prayer
I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep,
That in His mercy I be Judged
BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP.

I dont know. When we got there the poor thing was in at the pier. The dogs left, and the doe swam over to a sand bar and got up on the ice. Upon leaving she was laying on the ice staring at us.
