I just found this chat and thought I'd post a new topic. I live and work on the Bighorn River, and would be happy to offer reports on whats happening at any time. I t amazes me how few waterfowlers there really are in Montana anymore. I go to DU Banquets and meet a bunch 80%+ that don't even hunt. Anyway, WE ARE NOT CROWDED on the Bighorn. Last season, the busiest day at any boat ramp I saw was 3 trucks. To tell you the truth, a little more traffic would keep birds moving better. 2006 was a good duck year. The Crow Tribe has been raising hell with us about hunting geese, so that has deterred alot of the field hunting, but the river was the same ole same ole. Also, the Crows have ZERO jurisdiction within the high water mark. If you're ever in that part of the state, I love to meet other serious waterfowlers. We're a dying breed and I enjoy talking ducks.
