    I would concur with what Hannibal was seeing in NW MO. Squaw doesn't have the numbers now that we would expect and much of the area around it is therefore not getting as much activity. We have been relying solely on migrators and they are few compared to most years. Mainly early morning. They seem to shut down by 9:00am other than a few sporadic flocks. We have had those flocks of 100 - 300 birds decoy well though. Almost everything we are seeing are mature birds.

    I have been hearing a lot of snows at night going over north KC though. Maybe the nighttime push is the temperatures, maybe an adaption to hunting pressure. I know the migration is shifting even more these past two warm springs. They keep creeping farther north into Illinois. Anyone know if they are angling up across Iowa instead of turning along the Missouri River for Squaw Creek.

    I moved back to Iowa from MO four years ago. The migration through Iowa keeps getting stronger and further north each year. Obviously, this year with no snow/ice line they are rolling through here.
