Byers Farm Migration

Postby ByersFarm » Sun Oct 13, 2013 2:27 pm

We got off to a late start due to a wet spring and a late harvest.
The first water started October 3, and less than 48 hours later we saw our first specks.
By Monday of last week 9 had grown to 50.
As we began to roll the stubble our numbers continued to increase.

Cloudy weather always slows the buildup and concentration of waterfowl. As the fog lifted Friday the sunshine exposed some new birds.

Rain again Saturday morning put a damper on the festivities. Luckily the sun broke late that afternoon and the parade resumed.

As of today we are holding several thousand specks. I'm still optimistic to be up to our normal numbers by the weekend, but we still have some ground to make up.

We have a couple of weeks to make it to the 100k mark. It's hard to say if we are really behind or if the lack of 15-20k teal are impacting my feelings. With the increase we've seen since Friday I feel optimistic that this year won't be any different than the previous years. It depends a lot on our harvest. If we can cut and flood a bean field by the weekend then I would expect to 20k by this time next week.
