The fowl are starting to show up in this area now , went out today to my favorite timber pond with 2 - W290 video cams + 3 S600 still cams . Cold water a thin layer of ice around the edges ! I noticed a snapping turtle near the edge under the ice .
At first I thought it was dead but closer inspection it was moving ever so slowly , so slow I went back to the 4-wheeler for my carry cam !!

I'll bet you get good results from those set ups. Is that a round bale of hay rolled into the water or a pop up blind? Do you have a snapping turtle season?

Cool catch on the turtle. We have about 18 inches of ice on our ponds around here.

Looking forward to your waterfowl pictures Bob. Drilled through 2.5 feet of ice on Big Lake on Sunday, my youngest caught over 25 blue gills and a large mouth through the ice. I can't even imagine Spring right now. As Wolvenkinde said, it seems like Winter is just getting started.
