    Will this cold snap bring the geese to St. Mary's County?

    Not sure about st marys but im in upstate ny right now and yesterday and today there were tons of high migrators headed south. With northern ny getting 2ft+ of snow and cold temps starting to freeze up all the smaller bodies of water i am hopefull of some birds being around on the shore when the season reopens.

    With the duck seasons only one more sunrise away, is anyone else optimistic for this season? Looking at the snow cover maps, there is snow from Central Pennsylvania North... As long as we donot get frozen out, it could be the banner year we all dream of. I am planning on scouting out my various locations tomorrow morning, but any one seeing ducks in their regular places?

    Joe,

    I am in southern Anne Arundel and I heard several flocks of geese over the weekend after dark and assumed some of these were migrators heading south. I couldn't hail any of them to inquire if they plan to stop on St. Mary's but I would say some hopefully will be stopping along the Pax, Potomac and other tributaries along the say. We just need more cold weather and snow up north in Canada, New York and Pa to send more down.

    After scouting around via land an boat from the start of the season it's been gettin better and better birds are showing up a little later but for the most part I believe this year will be a better year which we are well overdue for a great year of Waterfowling the East Coast best of luck to everyone can't wait to read posts after tomorrow and stay safe with this cold water and frigid temperatures coming
