    Saw a few today, not as many as I️ expected. Must still be sitting tight and resting. Hoping to pick up some tomorrow with the front hitting up north and more N winds.

    We had two swans fly over our blind this morning....wish I had a camera as they were only 30' above us. Still seeing large bunches of snow geese headed south...hope to see ducks moving this weekend.

    Me and buddy shot 8 Sat/10 Sun. Hunted in afternoon in crappy misty foggy stuff. Surprisingly had a decent shoot. Guy that was with me had a malfunctioning gun so we took turns. Probably would have limited with 2 functioning weapons :) It was still a fun afternoon shoot. Birds really piled in after shooting hours. They are here but appear to be going a little more nocturnal now that the weather is warming. Will take wind/weather to move them during shooting hours over next 10 days it appears. I have to think there are piles and piles of mallards still North where there is no snow on the ground (SD?). At any rate when the first big snows come up North should give us the final push we need around the first of December. Been good so far. Hoping for wind, sun and weather up North now!

    Good luck

    The birds arrived last Tuesday-Wednesday and had good shoots through the weekend. It seems like it is time to switch from offense to defense to keep some feed around for the later push of birds!

    Totally agree. We turned pump off this week. Don' need the nocturnal feeding birds to eat us out with 50 days remaining in season. Of they want to play that game we will "fix them" :)

    Lots of ducks in North Central Missouri...it would be nice to get rid of the east wind!

    With the past two days of warm weather, things are pretty stale. We need some cold weather north of the river.
