Went out for a long weekend to Sakakawea (not quite sure on spelling) to shoot some canadas. I hadn't been out hunting for quite some time, and judging from the posts, I wasn't expecting much. However, to my surprise, there were numerous flocks of giants and lessers flying around the hazen/pig city area. The only problem we faced was the fact that none of them seemed to have landed in the same fields, which made scouting a little more difficult. There was a family flock here, a family flock there, but no more than 50 in a field. On sunday night we found the motherload of the lake and missouri river. this field was holding at least 2,000 birds, most of which were greenheads, along with canadas, and even some blues and snows. i couldn't believe it that this late in the season i could find something like this. The field was unposted, however, feeling some sort of responsibility, we asked the farmer if we could hunt it the next morning, but he had already decided to get first crack at those birds...damn... anyways, drove back down to bismarck, and it looks like the river, as usual, is holding thousands of geese.
