    Im still out, in the spread now, but havent seen any migrators for some time. Had birds in decoys yesterday afternoon when i arrive around 2 pm but that was a first. Probably start picking up if nothing happens today.

    Should have been out yesterday, and I should have been out by LST instead of 1045 am, as it was a flight day.

    You guys must be pretty far up and west if you're seeing them in IL. I've been working around the Shoe and haven't seen any flight birds.

    We had a pretty good South wind till noon or so, then it slowly changed over to NW about 2, no migrators after 2.

    Saw quite a few migrators Friday before the clouds rolled in. Today was dead, saw one wad of Rossi's.
