    I've been hunting and shooting snows for the last couple week here in North Dakota, and I'm seeing a lot of grey youngsters. Hopefully this coming spring will be rife with juveniles.

    Looks like crap in my area. Very few young birds in the main flight.

    We saw a lot of juvies in the flocks moving through central North Dakota as well.

    Should have added the group we hunted Sunday had a huge number of juvies as well as Ross geese.

    Not having an ecaller going for 7 months a year should help more than anything whether it’s young or old birds.

    We've seen decent bunches of snows quickly feeding on corn stubble then moving on here in NE Kansas the last few days...You're right Kip, this is the earliest I've ever seen any snows in this area in the last 35 years of chasing them...NC
