Its been a poor year for MN for the grrenheads-few of them around in the southern 1/2 of the state when compared to other years. Lots of geese though. And big push of geese happened Sunday night of EPP geese into Lac Qui Parle area out of the Oak Hammock area of MB.
There wasa good NW sat Pm throgh Sunday and I went out SUnday think Oboy new ducks should be in--NOT! I only sawa few small flocks of Geese, Redheads and Bluebills that were fresh. The Mallards are not even 10% of what is normal for this time of year IMO. A few Mallards moved into the northen 1/2 of MN though. Yesterday there was constant Tundura Swans migrating SE in the afternoon-the Swans are generally the last to migrate from the sloughs and only migrate when it freezes up.
Still no ice here-but that will be changing quick this week. Forcast for 18 degrees for a low on Friday here in southern MN, that means single digits for lows in MB and that'll push them down. My concern is if it'll push them so hard that they do a flyby and completely over fly MN, I've seen it happen before too mnay times
We have 2 weeks left of the season so we should be able to hunt the whole season over water up here in MN, last year by this time most sloughs and small lakes were froze over.
