    Looks like the storm coming Monday could make things real interesting with those leading edge birds.

    yeah. 63 degrees yesterday, 3-6 inches today.

    i really hope he gets into some. fall can be frustrating enough with smart birds but spring sounds even tougher.

    Hunted Tuesday knocked down 34. Went down Sunday seen the million in Burlington headed to macomb. Seen thousands in the 3 days down there. Snow line coming back home is MN Iowa border. Plenty of sheet water to house them for awhile.

    Drove down to Illinois from MN Sunday. Seen about million birds roosting on river in Burlington Iowa. . (On YouTube) hunted Sunday -Wednesday. Killed 34 Tuesday by macomb illinios. Seen plenty of birds. The whole time there. Snow line is MN Iowa border now. Plenty of top water in fields to hold birds up here now MN Iowa boarders.

    The leading edge of light geese this year contains enough juveniles this year to make for some good hunts as soon as they show up in a given area...Be Safe...NC

    Agreed on this, the past two weekends in northeastern MO we had the staged leading edge. We could easily locate juvies in feeding flocks, and we killed about half Ross half juvies with only a few adults. The Ross and juvies broke off from the big flocks for great shooting. It has gotten a lot quieter here now and I hope there's enough birds still to come (history says yes), but there were plenty of the "dumb" birds mixed in with those leading flocks. Actually we've never seen it so consistent to break off a few from many flocks and have them come right in.

    A guide on the mid-coast of TX had a 148 not long ago. That,s interesting about the mexico shoot, we had some really good numbers early that seemed to disappear about 3 weeks after they arrived. Those groups were loaded with juvies. The birds that replaced them had average juvie numbers. We,ve always had snows that come early and head far south but I believe that trend is growing.
