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.

Pretty sad state of affairs here in the reports thread. Followed this a long time, used to be 50 pages long and 100k plus views...kinda sad to see. Always looked forward to reading them several times a day and loosely used it to plan my own trips. Good luck all.

Buddy was working in SD yesterday said wave upon wave heading north between Brookings and Sioux Falls. See what the storm does

My cousin from Dickey County, ND, called me Tuesday and said many flights of snows going thru headed north....Upcoming storm may stall or push them back south.

I agree. I haven't even hunted snows yet. But have watched this thread for years. I thought the very same thing this year when I took a look at it.

Come on boys, lets post up some migration reports for us who dream of being in the field! Looks like cold weather for some time; February warmth spoiled us and gave us some anxiety.

I'd give my left nut to be hunting tomorrow VS going cross eyed staring at a yellow bobber for another weekend... Mixed reports on the ND/SD border shared by friends/family, SD sounds like the place to be so going fishing but keeping the 12ga within reaching distance!!! Good shooting

Some news out of Pierre. No snows in the area from Pierre north. There were darks but a vast majority pulled out and went north. Reports from a couple of days ago said there were a lot of snows up 281. This comes from a game warren who works this area. He also said there were no hunters. Appears this is so early no one was ready and why reports are slow this year. Sounds like the north half of SD did not get the white stuff on the ground but temps are cooler. 281 in the Redfield area might give some of you a chance to have fun.

OOPS. new words. Verified report that darks and snows were moving into the Pierre area close to sundown and came from the south. Lots of ducks. These flocks of snows were not mega groups but 5-10K. A starter kit to see what happens in the next couple of days.
