MinneKans wrote:Read a post on Nebraska DU Migration Map where the poster speculates the teal migration will be later than normal this year. His argument was that nesting was delayed due to the long winter and delayed spring nesting, resulting in a late migration. Would be nice to get in to more teal in Minnesota's early part of the season. This plausible?

I think the only way the fall migration would be effected is if they got started so late that they aren't even flying by the time the season starts. Actually that would only effect hunting, I'd think they'd still migrate mostly based on weather. But I'm no waterfowl biologist so I could be wrong.

head south in January, you will find your nice one for the wall.

I am probably starting to late and am to poor to ever get it done but I start my first steps this year getting to hunt South Dakota. I hope I get the chance to see the full plumage of every species on this journey. I have a dream of a full colored drake shoveler and cinnamon teal on the wall some day.
