    Do you have the picture? I've never heard of that many snows in one hunt. Be fun to see it.

    That is a massive group of hunters. I have never heard of a group of 23 hunters in a field but I guess its true.

    That being said they must have been a flat out amazing hatch of juvies this year because the hunting I am reading about now I have not read about in a long time for the fall season. It seems like if you can find a roost of snows you are going to knock the snot out of them no matter what.

    Well IMO it truly has been a good year here for ducks and geese coming though the area today I have record numbers of ducks and geese on the west end unreal on the number of them but cool to watch a hundreds drop in at 2000' AGL. and above.
