Perhaps we should have cut our losses after we sought shelter from the downpours in a Danube, Minn., café, only to learn the establishment had been shuttered and was for sale.

Should have, but didn’t, and our efforts ended with a hike through another 80 acres …

With no birds flushed.

“Corn’s the problem,” Willy said. “The harvest is late this year. When the corn is out of the fields, hunting will improve.”

So it will.
