    Here in northern Illinois I was just up on a roof working and got to watch hundreds upon hundreds of mallards on the move. Big flocks up high. Bad news for us. Good news for those further south.

    I hunted in Northeast IL til 11:30 never saw a duck, and only saw 1 goose, this field doesn't produce many ducks but it's a goose magnet. It's also close enough to see a river that the ducks will use as a highway. How ever we did see a bunch of Sandhills. The local roost was still wide open and had geese sleeping all over the lawn.

    Lot of new ducks today. Killed our 4 man limit by noon. Good mixed bag of 8 different species.
