Been searching the forum for a while. I was so new and with all the knowledge base here I never felt like I had anything to offer. I finally became a member last year so I could do searches for what I wanted to know more about. Still don't think I know enough to contribute much but I figure I should stick to forum rules and post here plus I may have a few questions in the future. My Spring and and Summer passion is Bees. My fall and winter passion is duck hunting (before duck dynasty was around) and ice fishing. Believe it or not The Great Salt Lake is a prime flyway for many migratory game birds and the marshes are an awesome place to hunt. Great pass time when I am not able to do anything with the hives. My year round passion is my family and they get most of my attention. I have 2 treatment free hives that made it through the winter out of 3. I plan on doubling them this year.
