    Armchair, was no different in Missouri. A really tough year. We waited them out to no avail. Some in the teen shoots but that was the best we could muster this year. Hoping for a much better than average hatch this Spring or we are in for a miserable 2022 Spring.

    I had them feeding around the house here in different fields but they left. I can't believe how high they are flying. Seems like every bunch is a half a mile or more high this year.

    I have seen zero migrating birds today not even darks.

    For you guys that are killing them right now how much fat do the birds have?

    saw a lot of birds this morning. had a lot turn around and look at me, but just don't have enough decoys to seal the deal.
    Do they still migrate through the Minot area?
    Last ones I shot weren't overly fat, except one. He was what I call greasy, with a nice layer of fat

    The sky is alive with birds tonight! It is 9:37 PM and it is flock after flock after flock crossing over into Canada. Lots of Specklebelly’s as well

    Everything has blown right thru. Was not really worth setting the migration spread this spring. None of the flocks stopped. Even the lessers and specks are rolling North hard.
