The flood I’ve been expecting for a month finally arrived overnight. Today the Milk River is out of its banks and spawning little side channels that are finding the low spots in roads and fields.

It’s a measure of my miserable winter that the window between the loss of our significant snow cover and the beginning of flooding has been narrower than the mind of a Nixon-era racist.

What does that mean? It means I haven’t had the opportunity to get out and hunt for shed antlers.

Will any shed remain when this flood ebbs? Or will all those cast-off antlers float downstream?

So, with apologies to David Letterman, I ask the question? Will antlers float?

Weigh in with your opinion, and I’ll post the results in a day or two.
