RANDOM UPDATES: Green Valley Fire, Bare Handed Quail Hunt, Mille Lacs ice out?

Lots of things to talk about today, so much that I just decided to condense it into one post.

First of all, the Green Valley fire by the Park Rapids/Menahga area has grown to 7,100 acres.  Structures have been destroyed and it’s not over yet.  It’s not very often that you hope for rain on a weekend, but everyone is hoping Mother Nature lends a hand in putting out this fire.

The Forum has an update on it today with pictures and videos here.

Fishermen’s Wharf had posted a picture on Tuesday of the bay being free of ice and today, Johnson’s Portside said this on their FB Page:

Mille lacs is free of ice today, now we get the marker buoys out and the docks. Get up here and FISH !

Finally this story of a man catching a quail with his bare hands.  You have to question the validity, much like the author of this article does, but the fact that he’s a pastor has to lend some credibility.  But he’s also trying to sell a book, and viral videos like this do a great job of spreading the word.  Watch and judge for yourself:
