Going to be rough conditions for the next few days. Wind chill around 0 mid week. These conditions are when we have fatalities here in NC. Check your gear and make sure your rig can handle the extra weight of the ice. Also make sure you controls do not freeze. As far as the ramps. If you see anyone pouring five gallon buckets of water down the ramp you need to report them. This is one of the worst NCWR tickets you can get. Obstruction of NC Navigable water is a major fine and it violates the NC Trust. Read about it. Some major fines have been given out for this in the tens of thousands. Also think twice before you take kids on the open water. Been a while since we had cold weather for this period of time. You South Carolina guys should be happy because we are getting ready to loose a good amount of ducks. Friday night, I lost 75 percent of the birds I was holding on my farms. Full moon and ice do not help. Ice eaters help but birds will get out of Dodge when there is this much ice. Hope to start seeing some new birds. Heading to Ocracoke but not looking forward to getting in a curtain box when it is 8 degrees. Safe hunting to everyone!
