When I heard the ice break and the splash of water, I immediately suspected Charlie was in trouble. And that I might have no choice but to join him. Charlie is not a large lab, as Labradors go. But he was large enough on that cold December day last year to break through the fickle ice of a cattail marsh. While marsh ice always has the potential to be treacherous, I mistakenly figured it was certainly strong enough to support a dog this late in the year. Hesitating for a moment to listen for an indication that he had extricated himself, the sound of whimpering quickly told me otherwise.
Flat nose bullets have been necessary in lever action rifles. The tubular magazines of the Model 94 Winchester, the Marlin 56 and others required these in order to avoid recoil sending a bullet point crashing into the primer of the cartridge ahead of it. The Hornady bullet makers of Nebraska may have changed all that. A new sharp point, soft nose bullet is being loaded for the .30-30, 35 Remington, .444 Marlin and the .45-70 calibers.
Although many bodies of water in the Midwest are still covered with a layer of ice, the rivers across the region are starting to provide some walleye action. And much of that action is being provided by jigs. When opening day for walleyes rolls around, many anglers will have a jig on the end of their line, and as the season progresses, that jig might just stay on the end of the line. Jigs catch walleyes year 'round, but if we want to be more successful jiggers, we need to consider the type of jig we're tying onto our line. Jigs come in many shapes, sizes, and colors.

The future of wheat is on the minds of two key Minnesota organizations and their members. A "Wheat Summit" is being hosted in Moorhead on April 5 by the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers and Minnesota Wheat Research and Promotion Council. The all-day program will address the current status of spring and winter wheat, and future possibilities.
