    Hey bowhunter, I feel your pain. Look at my trend. I just don't get big runs anymore. I collected 140 gallons on Monday which I boiled for about 3 gallons of syrup. That put me at a total of about 14 gallons for the season....wooo-hooo. I'm seeing the same number of dry taps and great taps as you. I may try to move some of my dry taps to some other trees, but my pickings aren't too good. We may get one last hurrah this weekend. Good luck.

    I don't like the trend:
    2017: 100 taps, buckets, 15 gallons syrup
    2016: 100 taps, buckets, 30 gallons syrup
    2015: 100 taps, buckets, 34 gallons syrup
    2014: 100 taps, buckets, 30 gallons syrup
    2013: 100 taps, buckets, 52 gallons syrup
    2012: 100 taps, buckets, 37 gallons syrup
    2011: 93 taps, buckets, 47 gallons syrup
