So my bait has been out for week. It was hit next day and than every day until Wednesday. In that time they cleaned out about 2/3s or over 200 lbs. Thursday a polar front moved in and night time temps dropped to 15F with day highs of 28F. To top it off at the cabin we got 5 inches of snow Thursday night and than another 2 inches Friday night. This pic was taken Friday afternoon before the next 2 inches fell:

Headed off to check the site Saturday mid morning. Oddly enough at the put in (15 mile from the cabin) there was only an inch or two of snow:

On the way:

Three miles down the lake from the put in at the bait it was more like 2 or 3 inches of snow. Pic was taken about half way down the shooting lane to the bait:

So the action dried up Wednesday night but i figured I would sit out anyway as i know for sure if I'm on the couch it ain't gonna happen. Set up on the bait at about 1 pm. Temp was around 25F most of the day - stayed out for 8 hours. The hide makes use of a windfall root mass that i carved a U shaped rest into for a shooting rest. I was #$%^ cold by the time I finished up the boat trip back to the truck.

So at the cabin we get a spotty unreliable one bar of cell signal. We installed a signal booster and it is now workable. When i head into the back-country solo i take a SPOTX sat texter. It is a two way device that allows you to send and receive text only messages up to 140 characters per message. Picked it up 2 years ago as my wife was starting to get antsy about me heading out alone off the grid sometimes for a week or more at a time. It also has an SOS button that if you hold down for 5 seconds will send a distress call with your coordinates to the nearest search and rescue.

The Navajo Nation just cancelled their Spring Bear Hunt because of the China Virus.
Adios,
