It's 55 and south wind blowing at 20-30. That should help with your ice question.

I see we have another hater just signed up on the forum. I saw his 3rd post asking where all the divers are. Was going to tell him to get in his truck and drive to Canada checking every waterhole along the way. Newbies???? :fingerpt:

Living in that area you'd think you'd be able to come up with some private land to hunt guy.

That''s kinda like last Sunday, a guy from IL was at the slough. I was talking with him, there were only about 55 parties there, he said a buddy called him and said there were spots left over on Saturday and he thought he'd give it a try. He went on to say he drove about 3 hours to get there and could not believe how big the crowd was. :crying:
I told him that it was a typical weekend crowd, maybe a little light for the slough and the reason they had spots left over on Saturday was cause the place was 90 percent ice locked.

My point is, if you're not from around the area, you can say this or that but you don't have a clue. A good "private area" around the slough will cost you more than a premium price.

Not from the area and have plenty of places around there I can go hunt whenever. Pay a total of.... zero dollars.

You mean you're not gonna jump in your boat and run down for a marginal 1 plus bird per man average?? This was at 1 pm today, probably a little deeper by now.

I believe we are getting to flood stage.

I've got number 9 for tomorrow but am not going. There is water absolutely everywhere in Semo plus I think the flu is starting to set in. Oh well, at least there is still the South zone for those "reverse migration" days. :biggrin: Hope everybody stays safe on the way to the Slough in the am. You will definately run into water over several roads.

No I wasn't asking where the divers are, I can find my own scouting......I was wondering where the divers were in the pic, all I saw were a bunch of fish eating mergansers
