The lone ice house on Mud Lake has been moved on. Despite the ideal location, given the spot on the edge of the weeds, we assume they did not have good luck. Sunday afternoon the house was moved.
The lake remains covered in a layer of snow. It is of note that the ice house folk seem to be the only folk on the lake. No snowmobile tracks or footprints were noted in view. The cold of late as no doubt slowed use of the lake area.
We have seen a few deer, but numbers around the lake seem down a lot. Two bucks with antlers were seen hiding under a group of pines. More down Highway 1 a small group crossed the other day. Otherwise the daily move of deer through the woods along the lake seems down. One track they have used loomks to only have minimal traffic.
