    Still getting reports of birds in western Iowa. Pockets of juvenile birds it seems.

    Dakotas and western MN for the adults.

    So what do they call senior ladies? Snow Leopards?

    Off season is is full swing for most. JC had the worst season of his duck hunting life and it’s been reported that he has checked into one of those fancy California rehab centers to deal with his withdrawal.

    Not surprisingly, he’s been hallucinating and keeps mumbling about nurses, Raquel Welch and something about an Island and Ginger.

    Yeah, 120 per day in the same field, each and every day — hard to fathom.

    What’s harder to imagine is that you could control a predictable landing zone in a spread that size.

    If the wind changes direction, do we just send JC out to reset the spread?

    Here is the link to the guy with 13k full-bodies:

    He needs some help on Facebook though to shorten that address and make it a simple username URL.

    I took one of those vertical shots on the last WFC Arkansas outing.

    A stray flock of snows came over at 60-ish yards and our guide said, “Bet those Heavy Shot Sixes wouldn’t do much good on those…”

    I pulled up and fired one shot on the end bird. One wing snapped back and it did the controlled crash on the far end of the rice field.

    The guide looked over at me smiling and said, “Shoulda kept my mouth shut… now I gotta go retrieve that.”

    LOL.

    Water has been an such an issue for us here in northern Illinois as well the past 5 seasons. In the 20-years I’ve been a partner on the marsh, the last 5 have been been horrible on water. The creek that borders our property follows the water table and only for a short time in the spring has it been high enough to feed the marsh with water.

    Last summer it was barely a trickle and farmers were pumping our of it for sweet corn irrigation — which added to the problem.

    Filling the sink hole might help losing water after we get it, but it won’t solve the problem of getting it.

    Could be a lot of work to fix it and no sure pay off.

    NOAA 3 month weather reports above average temps for south and colder in north. Should keep the snow line solid and make for a extended spring shoot.

    Here’s hoping.

    I didn’t shoot a single woody this year. My stock of flank feathers for fly-tying is dwindling.

    That’s ok JC — we have your pessimism to fill them :)

    My bucket list for this year is simple. Fill the gravel sink-hole in the marsh where our water is escaping and then sink a well point and add a pump.

    I’ll have water this season no matter what.

    Glad your season has turned out great. Ours was a bust here but looking to some great opportunity for spring snows.

    Post some pics when you can.

    Yu,

    I hear ya on the season complaints. Mine was an absolute bust. At this point I’m hoping to salvage it someway with a nice spring snow goose hunt for the boys and I.

    I am jealous — and sick of a drought that lead to cold, snow and frigid temps.
    :)

    Glad to see somebody stacking them up.

    Been a while since we seen a snow cover map like this:

    Canada goose hunting is going to be good in places it hasn’t been in years.

    Gooselore has been stacking them up. Haven’t you seen on Facebook?

    Have you figured out how to take a picture with your phone yet and post it here JC?
