Going to miss all openers in MI this year cause I am heading to ND tomorrow. Please make some posts about how it went and keep us up on the migration of different species not just “ducks”

Hey I forgot to mention that Doug Deming of Fish Point Lodge tells me water is up about 8″ from last year.

Great last morning. Not many birds around and the normal flocks of woodies are absent this year probably because there are no acorns on the oaks along the shore. I did manage one dumb goose making a total of 15 for the “nuisance goose” season. I suspect they are called nuisance because they are so unpredictable this early.

Play safe and get all your gear ready to go. I just looked at the ND weekly video and it should be a banner year out there.

Sept.first opening day for geese was hot and windless with no movement at all.Labor Day was windy and cooler,(3)hunters shot 4 geese during the afternoon after 3:00 P.M. One of the team hunted several late afternoons and shot 5 more geese. I hunted early Wednesday morning and shot 1 goose at 7:00 0’clock and no other large group movement was noticed during the morning hours.

Headed out in the morning to see what the last day brings for geese. It has been a mixed bag for me with WX problems and a cranky motor on my TDB. I prefer to hunt water for waterfowl but the local field hunters I have talked with are having a slow time of it. I did have a great hunt with friends down around Imlay City last Sunday. We snuck out of the morning show at the woods n waters week-end show and hunted with positive success. Course that can happen when a local sets you up and you are with Champion team callers.

Make sure all your gear is really ready to go and have a safe season out there.

Anyone who would like to know that molt migration has happened. I hunted a local spot this morning and saw what I normally see when the molt has happened. More geese than the nesters showed me a couple of days ago and dumb to boot.
