It seemed maybe they were more spread out then? It seems this year has been consistent action on snows. Granted I don't get to hunt them as much as I did when I lived there but in December, i had some great hunting and it was the first time in a couple years I've seen that many in my hunting areas, though they have spread out to other areas and maybe I didn't notice the past several years. My dad is still over there and has been sending lots of pictures. I'm headed over there tonight with what seems like good numbers still to be hunting and in years past it's been tough. Go back 10 years and those were the glory days and if we compared numbers now to then it's not even comparable. Sully, i hear on you on the closure. It closed at what was probably our first and only big cold snap so it brought a lot down, but hopefully that 6 snow goose limit eased some of the pain on the snows you might of not shot during those 11 days. Lets not forget that it wasn't that long ago that it was 3 snows and the season closed the first week of January. Talk about torture watching thousands upon thousands of geese the last 3 weeks of duck season landing in your duck spread all the time.
