When do you start harvesting rice, just curious?

Late August, though I've seen us cut on the 10th of August.

I hunt in SEMO and have not been over to check on the place yet and not bothered my farmer. I was just wondering about when will rice be ready for harvest this year.

We saw a flock of about 15 teal on Sunday. Today we are looking at well over 100. The migration is getting off to a much better start than last year.

We are having some cool weather here in ND. Birds should be moving fairly soon

That's good to read. The anticipation level on my end is high, especially after last year. Still not seeing much, yet, and in the numbers we're used to. Though I may be pushing it early just a bit.

We are a little ahead of schedule this yeah. Though we usually don't have 400 acres flooded.

That is really good news Cason. No late spring snow cover helped with nesting I'm sure...

I took it as a great sign as well. That number of birds on this date tells me to expect out typical teal migration of 20k plus birds. Which is something we didn't even approach last year.

At 4:30 in the morning? It had been up all day. That's why I was surprised to see it edited.

I've done the same thing before...though I was on one thread and posted a reply, only to find out I'm on another. It usually happens because I have more than one window open on my computer (easier to address mod stuff and not loose my place on a thread).
