    I heard that. I'm not equipped for specks.
    Nothing is exciting as a big group in a big blind working specks.

    True, always more into the specks than ducks. Guess that goes back to the old days at Ballard where you pass on ducks if geese are in sight.

    Bird Alert technology is an advance in information about nocturnal migration. That's all. What it means for your local success is mostly nothing.
    Regardless I find it interesting to know. The big migrations don't happen many days a year and the website info confirms that. Further, migrations follow the flyways so movement from Ontario won't affect me in NE.
    If the reports of ducks piled up in ND and upper SD are accurate I do look forward to their arrival.

    I guess waterfowlers are slow learners. It's Thanksgiving. And just like every year prior...these "reports" get thrown around. Yet, nothing ever happens!

    If anyone thinks there's still the bulk of the ducks (including Mallards) still yet to make it south of Interstate 90, you are mistaken.
    People are ice fishing across much of ND. After this weekend, people will be ice fishing across much of eastern SD.

    There's still some ducks...but not many. It's November 25th.

    I disagree. Have evidence.
    It's not over until the pelicans leave. :l
