If the opportunity presents itself I will choose snows above all else, but over the last couple years the emphasis has really shifted to mallards and honkers due to the fact that they just don't really stage here like they used to. That is why we started going to Canada four years ago. We get in at least a couple days of good snow shooting up there. Also here in ND, when the snows finally do get here it isn't uncommon to see 10 trucks watching every good field of birds, and then the land is usually leased or being saved for family. As far as hunting snows in Carrington, if you would have been around in the late 70s you would have been in the heart of snow country for the end of the month, but they have gradually shifted north and west every year to the point where they don't even stage in ND anymore.
