Looking at the long range forecast (although it hasn't been right in the past and probably wont be anywhere near right again) and getting pretty pumped. We leave the 9th of Oct. for Manitoba. The counts at Oak Hammock are rising to pretty near last years numbers while we were there, even with the warm temps up to now. Have the mallards started to show up yet? I hope we get some temps in the low 20's while we are there in the morning. Nothing shocks the system more than when you leave Missouri and its 80 degrees and show up to hunt 24 hours lates and its in the 20's. See you Canucks shortly!!!!!!!!!
