Thanks guys! I will probably take you up on the offers. I leave AK on 1 Mar 04. Plan is to drive to Minot. Get settled in and await the spring snow goose migration. Ric may come up next season to ND. If you all plan to come there let me know and you will have a place to rest your head. I think it will probably take a season to figure things out but I figure if I can kill birds here then I should be good to go there. Right now it is easy to get exicited about 100 ducks up here and 1000 geese. Not sure what my pulse will do when I get there. I might need an ambulance to start following me around. Once again I appreciate it guys!!!

Temps are warming a little and we are getting some more snow. 1 – 3 inches is the forecast. Any body have a boat in Valdez or Homer? Would love to get some Seaduck hunting in or something. I just have not had my fill for the season. A guy on base told me that there was a pair of woodducks hanging around FBKS by the Tanana River. After he described them it sounds like a pair of my beloved Mergys!!!! May have to go find them. If Delta warms up I may have to make the drive. The boat is still in the garage all nice and warm. Its ready to go. I think the guy that was buying it has backed out which kind of sucks for me. Well if anyone is getting out good luck!!!!

Hec Ric you should have been out chasing those birds last sunday at -40. The bison were out in droves though my gun malfunctiond causing the air to warm up significantly around me due to large quantities being expelled in the form of expletives!!

Hey Leo,
no didn’t hunt up towards Minot this time.
I concentrated in and around Jamestown and Lisbon. I grew up in Jamestown so have plenty of areas to hunt around there. But since you are being sent to Whynotminot, we have a farm east of Garrison close to the Garrison Dam and relatives all up and down the river til Bismarck so if you get into a jam post.
Very cold here and Skybust and I might attempt to go out on Sunday.
Will let you all know what partakes

AKDUSE,

I have orders to Minot ND this Mar. Did you hunt close to that area?

I know there are still plenty of ducks in Delta but with the low temps it just does not make sense. I have been out there at negative 16 to negative 20 and driving the boat at those temps just isn’t smart. Hopefully it warms up.
