Hard to guess how many are in cent Illinois, but from just what we saw 15 miles from the roost I am guessing a few million. Crazy number of adults here right now. Warm weather and full moon with a south wind most of this week should push some of them out hopefully.
looking for a recommendation here. I go on one trip to hunt snows in NW Missouri and have the option to go this upcoming weekend or hunt the first full week in march. we hunt a pasture pond style set up and run traffic on the migrators. would you all recommend going this weekend with the warm temps expected or wait until the first week in march? any suggestion?
This is wishing everyone good luck in 2017. I will be watching the posts to see how you do. For the first time in years I can not make a hunt as the old ticker has problems and open heart could be next. My brother out of Pierre says things could be heating up as some snows came in last night and he saw several large flocks east of him. It was toward dusk and a long way off so could not be sure if he saw darks or snow. But did say the bird were high. My brother keeps a log and he says this is really early for the migration to start in his area. Good luck and hope each of you stack the snows up. While you are at take a couple for me.
