    May God bless ALL men, especially you misfits. I was going to do another early Sunday waterfowl scouting of the WMAs and more this morning, but I did not awaken until 5:30AM and decided it best not to risk running across any of you; so, I am patiently awaiting a weekday for all. :p

    Brrrŕrrr... it has dropped to 58°F within the past hour, even though the sun is on the rise, and I have already seen/heard two different flocks of geese fly over the field just beyond the s/d this morning, heading their honking selves westward.

    And yet another flock, much bigger and louder just traversed the exact same flight plan. Largest flock thus far, and I believe they are all canadians.

    These geese are seriously on the move this morning. Two more flocks I have seen/heard, with this last flock potentially being one of the previous ones, since they were eastbound over the same field.

    And again, honking like little madhatters. Managed a good, but distant visual and this flock now consists of approximately 50, but they seem to be circling within the sky, potentially picking up more as they go along.

    I have been cursed on early goose season but I never have the time to scout and don't chase them very hard. i can usually make up for it in Dec/Jan if inclined.

    I did see about 20 teal in a group the other day.

    The geese are getting a late start around here this morning; I just heard my first ones fly through the area. I did see a man at the gas station around 6:30am I guess, dressed to hunt, and he was going dove hunting. I do hear quite a few doves.

    Early migration for sure. 3 weeks early according to reports in Canada of areas frozen over that havent been locked up this early in 20+ years.

    Just a thought...

    Canada closed down to US hunters so those hunters all travel to ND and it’s a bust because it froze up early....leaving better numbers for the states further down the migration.

    Banner year...gonna be a banner year.

    Six hours of data missing from NWS. System glitch, being not the only airport impacted. During those missing hours, my medium sized wheelbarrow almost completely filled with rain water. Those few, deep mud puddles over in the bottoms have surely become deeper, with new ones scattered about now. There was a flood advisory earlier, but I have not checked levels. Most has since runoff here but its impact can still be seen, being that some of my huge mums became bent down by the constant weight. Although cool now, a cold front is currently forecast for next Friday afternoon/evening.

    I've got high hopes for youth season in 2 weeks. Its been a few years since we've had more than local geese and woodies to shoot at.

    How'd your water control structure work out?
