    I took the dog out yesterday and didn't find any birds. It was really windy. I thought I would start a thread about the migration. Post what you see. Going again tomorrow so I will give a report.

    Got out opening weekend and didn’t see a bird either. Hopefully we’ll get a push of birds with these couple cooler days.

    Didn't see anything in northern Kentucky today.... could probably attribute that to a new hunter and a young dog though. Either way, hope they head down here soon!

    It was a nice day today, so I can't complain. Hunting some good looking areas and only found one bird. Got it in the bag. Maybe we need a few more days.

    Valley Station, were you hunting for woodcock? If you werent and accidentally found it, there may well be a lot more in the area. On another note, does anybody use the Ruffed Grouse Society migration map? Can you get the sliding timeline to work right? I have given up on it.

    Used to be a "bird" hunter, quail became extinct and my last Ol' dog died. Was out bow hunting, have seen woodcock flying at dark last couple times out on post. They're moving thru now.

    I went to Illinois for pheasant opener this weekend, and usually find some stray woodcock when I am there. We didn't see any. My dog got hurt so I haven't been looking here in KY. Anyone else been out looking?

    Seen one flying a bit before dark at my place last week. First one I’ve seen since I bought the place 3 years ago

    Moved 3 yesterday out in the rain in northern central KY. RGS tracker shows some in the Kentucky/Ohio area.... hopefully they stick around a bit.

    Birds are still in central Kentucky.... hopefully this mild weather holds them here even longer.
