    The most recent waterfowl counts from KDWP&T show over 400,000 light geese across the northern quarter of Kansas...I travel all across NE Kansas & I've seen light geese all winter. Their numbers have increased substantially over the past week or so...Be safe...NC

    With no snowline anywhere close, decent temps, and thinning ice, that doesn't surprise me. I'm guessing we'll be siiting in a white spread on opening day of the CO season unless some weather system shows up.

    The latest counts show over 500,000 light geese throughout KS...We've picked up a lot of new geese over the past week here in NE KS...The 15 day forecast shows nothing to slow them down...Be safe...NC

    I'm SSW of you about 1.5 hours. 12 days ago I had 100K in the area I hunt. Last Wednesday I had 25K of snows and specks. Saturday I had some retired Navy buddies come in to hunt. We set the spread in an awesome field. Saw not one Snow or Speck. They had moved north on us....

    Where are you guys located at? Message me if you could. Got a long drive for the opener in Kansas. Will it be too late?

    No, it won't be too late.
