I think you are correct, if this cold keeps up I do think the hunting is gonna heat up!

just heard Chautauqua was holding 210,000 ducks and geese. Also heard in the same conversation that they lost 130,000 in one push. Wilder Farms is holding a TON of birds.. 10,000 that the state is reclaming to flood plain........its all corn field right now. Proally only 1,000 acres flooded but i bet you could imagin how many ducks could eat in that amount of corn.
