I'm seeing lots of fowl already stacked up in southern Missouri and Arkansas.

Oregon is locked up by a big off shore high pressure. Sunny every day, very little wind. We got one mid day wind out of the north several days ago. There is a spot that is only hunt able with a strong north wind. So as the wind picked up mid morning I ran out to the spot. Shot 5 Wigeon and 5 specs in a couple hours. Then the wind dropped.

My wife sure has been stepping on a lot of them lately.

If the temps stay like this, people will be ice fishing the Twin Cities lakes by Thanksgiving. Many of the lakes on the north edge of the metro area had skim ice on most of the lake yesterday. The very largest lakes and moving water is open but there aren't many ducks around. Should be able to walk the swamps for pheasants once deer season is over.

Got 4 mallards and a teal this weekend. Very warm, very calm weather. Some decoyed, jumped a few.

Well, it's below zero already tonight. So ND outside of the Missouri River corridor is frozen and done. Time for ice fishing for most guys.

I saw hundreds of Canada geese over by the big river though this weekend.

Lots in lower Mississippi flyway already. Really early migration this year.

Seasons not opened yet and ducks are feeding all night, coming back to loaf before sun up. Too early for that to start happening. I'm sure the recent full moon has them in that cycle.

Been killing some woodies and got a hooded merg this week. Seeing some flocks around of various species, it just happens that they don’t like to come into the woodie holes I love so much.

No prob, it just struck me as sounding odd. The language police could nail my ass too. Flock of ducks in the air, raft of ducks on the water if you want to sound cool. Big ones or small ones.

"Washington (CNN)A "slow-moving blob" that may have been a flock of birds triggered a lockdown of the White House and caused the US Capitol to be placed on "restrictive access" Tuesday morning."

I stand corrected, birds do come in blobs. According to the CNN style book anyway. laugh

Of course. 🤠

Our first few day split opened yesterday. Slow morning today but beats sitting in the couch.

My buddy and his lab Patch thinks the couch might have been better though.
