    yes in Celsius, 30-40km NORTH winds, and 10-20 CM's of snow.. gets me thinking allot of birds will hop on the Jet stream and get outa dodge around here, don't you think?

    Lots more north even if some leave. Big water won't freeze for quite some time yet. I wouldn't be concerned

    Weather change is always good it just depends which end of the migration you are in? The weather would need to be sustained with hard water for them to leave.

    I was up week ago and from more reports big migration hasn't taken place yet this might just help

    Guess that depends what you are after...Since our group is headed to Sask for snows, I'm not sure what to expect where we are headed. I'm guessing it will push some out but it could also work out perfectly and force a big push from the north and give us fresh birds to shoot on Monday...I can shoot all the dark geese I want around here so if only them and mallards around it would be a bust, main purpose of our trip was to get after birds not typically found here.

    Just got off my phone with a friend around Saskatoon. He said birds were everywhere yesterday. So far he has received 4" with more coming. With the wind, he is expecting good sized drifts. He lives off the beaten path & said it might be a week before he digs out. To quote him, "I think Winter is here"

    Rex aka mrmallerd I have group friends hunting W N of Saskatoon 9 of them hunted in same field together last two days they have got limit (or very close to it) 72 dark geese & 72 ducks yesterday afternoon they also got into few snow geese. This morning after getting setup they had pack it up & give it up, 4 -5 inches snow and STRONG wind blowing decoys away. They have one more day tomorrow then start home. Geese moved into this area starting last Sunday. As your friend said To quote him, "I think Winter is here" From D U report: http://www.ducks.org/Hunting/Waterf...k-Starts-Hunting-in-Saskatchewan?poe=migalert
