U S SNOW COVER MAP

Postby Underradar » Mon Dec 09, 2013 5:15 pm

Shows snow all on everywhere north of Jonesboro Arkansas. Why am I not covered in Mallards in Ashley County Ark. and Morehouse Parish La? We are eat up with gadwalls and other trash but not lots o mallards. I demand explanations.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

Most of the snow is not deep 1-2 inches. Remember last 2 years many of them short stopped because of mild weather. So mom did not take them south and now they don't think they are suppose to. Will take lots of snow and no water to push them south this year. With the reports I have seen they are where they stopped last year and guys are saying they are sitting on the ice by the thousands like they don't know what to do. A few days ago there were 1 million on the Missouri river in South Dakotawith 750 thousand of them mallards. In the Atlantic zone there are still in up state NY and St lawrance sea way in big numbers.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

another winter storm is moving in on the heels of this last arctic blast. This storm is named 'Winter Storm Dion". The cold will stay locked in for a while.

Unfortunately, Boatman's pegged it. Cold alone won't be enough. Need deep snow.

if the winter storms keep forming, that might not be a problem this season. I'll take gadwalls, redheads, cans, teal, and pintails though. Don't have to have mallards for me to hunt.

Spoke to a fellow this morning who was in the marsh above us yesterday. Said the biggest change is thousands of blackbellies have moved in. Thank goodness I have my whistle...

If we have 'em, he probably won't. Seems to me they ebb and flow around the region: thick in one place, thin in another, then a few days or couple weeks later perhaps the opposite.

Ok. I get it now. All I have to do to get mallards is cover my fields with ice and snow so they will feel at home. Who has a giant sno-cone machine?
