I don't know about Ballard, but 100 miles east in Webster County, a few days of solid rain sure would be nice before Nov. 27 rolls around. My slough is dry.

We got much needed rain today and more is in the forecast. The upper bottoms near Hickman are bone dry and will continue to be until we get a large amount of rain. We have started to flood our fields along the Mississippi River here in Fulton County and they seem to be holding good amounts of Pintail, Gadwall, Teal, with a few Mallards. Reelfoot Lake is still really low which may end up hurting the hunting Fulton County.

I wasn't saying that the rain we got solved the water situation, just that we finally got rain. Next week it is supposed to rain four days straight on and off, at least near Hickman, so that should help.

I was just about to hop on here and ask how the rain was in western KY. I'm in Nashville for the weekend and won't get a chance to check out my slough. All I know is I've got some wheat that needs to flood within the next 18 days!

Anybody have a report on birds at the refuges in Henderson Co., KY? or Horseshoe Lake, IL?

Listening to the radio on my way in to work this morning and I heard a waterfowl report on Ballard County. They talked about the lack of food up north in the mississippi river valley and how bunches of ducks started a premature migration compared to years passed. they estimated 50,000-60,000 ducks in ballard county right now, but only a few hundred geese. Good look to those of you hunting Ballard opening weekend.

well boys. where it used to be belly button deep in the swamp u will be lucky if she is knee deep. a beaver hut that used to be a 1ft out of the water is 5ft out of the water. she is low as I have ever seen. with no rain this winter, she will freeze quick. it took 3 days for it to thaw out this weekend. and that just aint good. that 50 60 k bird count is probably right, but they are deffinately scattered though. i did my scouting hard and they are very patchy.
