Here is another reminder to make sure you take care of your things and clean up when you need to clean up.  Ice does melt in Montana, believe it or not, and if you leave your ice shanty out on the ice too late into the spring, it will sink, and you will get fined when FWP has to remove it.  At least they put their ALS number on it…

I don’t know who’s it was but I watched the game wardens pull it out They said there was a fine coming with it and the people had to come and pick it up.
