    10-13" around Chataqua and Emiquon, I would guess they will be heading south very soon.

    You could hear them migrating all night long last night so there definitely was movement last night

    I saw a large flock of specks go over the house Tues afternoon.
    They were headed south.

    My boy has hunted the last three days in a field that was holding about 10,000 snows, a couple thousand specks,& 500 ducks. Total for the three days were 5 specks & 3 ducks. Considering the weather the last three days (10 to 50 degrees wind anywhere from 5 to 25) no SOBs got to within 100 yds.
