I haven't been around to know what the hunting has been like 15-20 years ago, but i have even noticed within the last 6-7 years that they don't stay around very long. One thing is that the flyway is changing every year. I live in Bottineau and my dad said this isn't anything like back when he hunted. They fly through so quickly and they are alot smarter. Plus they used to be all over in the bottineau area. Now they are more west and east of here.(in the fall that is). I was just wondering what other people would have to say about this.Has anyone else noticed the changes?
