    We hunted around Central Ia Fri and Sat. We had 26 on the ground Fri by 11 including a banded Ross shot by 10gaBBB. That's the 2nd year in a row he has shot a band. This one was shot less than a half a mile away from last years. Everything went dead by 1. Had 1 more flock check us out and only had a shot at a single and dropped it for #27. We saw plenty of birds today. Unfortunately Sat we only dropped 1 today. We saw lots of birds again but pretty sure we saw same birds as Fri. Pics will come later.

    Mighty slow around Lincoln. Had three small flocks 20' off the ground Friday morning in 20+mph winds, not a bird in the air after 10. One group came over early yesterday with no intentions of stopping and that was it for the day.

    whats the scoop from this weekend guys? push south to I 90 corridor? had a buddy hunting a couple days fri and sat and got 10 around that area. im heading out wed at noon for my first of many trips hopefully. I seen on the future radar there may be another storm thursday but hopefully it wont amount to much. ill post up what i see when i get back this comming sunday. im still debating if i should go nd or sd. leaning toward sd i dont want to fight the leading edge birds they are to smart:nutz

    Just got back from a trip to Bismarck. The only snows we seen were 50 miles east of there by the town of Dawson. Probably 40 to 50 thousand in the air heading south. That was the only birds we saw all the way back to the border. there is no snow in Bismarck but a lot more from Jamestown to Fargo.

    Most all of the birds that were in ND have gone back to SD.

    Probably saw 3 flocks driving around SW Iowa yesterday. Flocks ranged from 1000 - 5000 birds.
