Flight Birds

My friends and I from Michigan will be arriving in ND on Saturday, hunting an area north of Medina. I understand that the local birds have been getting hit pretty hard, and that even the NODAK boys are having a tough go of it. :( With the weather you're having though, it seems like the flight birds ought to be arriving soon. Has anyone seen any evidence that the birds from the Great White North are in ND yet? I've also heard some speculation that due to the drought conditions in Canada, there may not be much of a migration this year. Any thoughts?

You are right about the canadian duck decline. There will be a flight this year, but not compared to the past. North Dakota WAS the flight this year in some respects, due to the birds short stopping for available water.

Yes, the locals are pretty skiddish. Scouting is criticle at this time of year for both ducks and geese. The birds aren't keying in on the corn as I think it's still too warm?... A cold snap should turn on the hunting in the next week.

I'm flying up to Winnipeg and back tomorrow for work, I'll post up what I see.
