Thanks for the post, still might be hope!
Hunted south central il this weekend
Lots of birds headed north Saturday afternoon
Not many came are into the area Saturday night
Very quiet this morning
Hope there are more down south but don't think so
Troller, first 10 days of March I would not miss. I have almost 2 weeks scheduled then and I'm not moving it.
Finally got into some juvies and rossies in se Nebraska
Saw a friend that had a good shoot in SE NE. They even got a yellow neck collar ross.
Lots of migrators moving through Arkansas at night not as much in the daylight
Every group here witch is about three in Greene county 80% are Ross or juvies
Huge push through Neb Saturday night. Non stop over town. Dead the next morning.
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.
