Canada received its first winter weather and more waterfowl have moved over the border. North Dakota had an influx of waterfowl with white geese flocks being counted in the 50 to 100 thousand bird range and flocks seem to be on the move. Duck numbers continue to build in northeast South Dakota as traditional wetlands areas are holding huntable numbers of ducks and dark geese including very large concentrations of mallards. Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Brown county is reporting 5.000 Canada geese, 45,000 snow geese, 140,000 ducks, and 3,200 swans. It is likely snow geese numbers in northeast South Dakota will increase over the weekend.

I think tom. Tues. is going to be a good day for hunting right in front of the mixed snow we are supposed to get and a NW 10-15 mile an hour wind will help.

No me! We did see a lot of ducks on Saturday but only shot 6. We had high winds and rain that seemed to bring in some new birds, but also pushed large flocks further South. The area I've been hunting the last couple of weeks seems to draw a lot of ducks, just not sure why. My next trip out will be on Friday, I'll post results then.

I went out to the Otter Creek marsh today after school got there at about 11 and me and a buddy shot 7 mallards. I think the flight should be her around sunday or monday that is my prediction.
Without hunting the fall and winter would just be football.
