    I have been hearing conflicting conditions with the drought. Like some saying potholes are drying up and small sloughs are down a couple of feet compared to a year ago. But others are saying everything only dropped a 1' this year. So pictures are worth a 1000 words, so if any of you live there, please post up a couple of typical pothole and small sloughs photos. TY in advance.

    Those are some big @$$ cracks in the ground CSUguy. What part of Sask is that? About 5 years ago we hunted a Pea field in Central Sask and putting SiloSocks in the ground was a nightmare. We didn't hunt Pea fields the rest of the trip....

    The ground sure is cracking open.

    Does any one have any photos of the potholes and smaller sloughs near Regina or Estevan or Swift Current area?

    TY CSUguy.

    Would say it's down about 3' from a year ago?

    What is the nearest town? (I'm just trying to get an idea where it is for comparison on the drought map). if your prefer, just PM me. Thanks.

    Farmer in West Central area said sloughs are down 1-3 feet. The pics are from 1 hr SE of Quill Lakes.

    Is there any one S or SW of Regina in the heart of the worst drought area of S SK that can chime in with 1st hand info?
