What are you guys/ gals seeing for migration south out of Canada? Anyone in southern ND seeing any numbers or is everything pretty much still along the northern order?

Been about a week and a half anything better yet?

I'll be out there the first full week of November, hoping for good bird numbers.

Well, I live in Minot and I can say from scouting north, south, east, west...it doesn't matter....thousands and thousands and thousands of snows, blues, specs, canadas, and ducks have migrated through and are not stopping. Our ponds, even the biggest ones are totally frozen over all the way down to bismarck. There are absolutely no birds left around here with the temps that we are seeing at night the water is only hardening. It sucks, I'm getting my ice fishing gear ready.

I was out tonight and the ducks were thick again. They have remained in big numbers for the last three weeks. The larger numbers have moved west some but they are still pretty thick up here.

Glad to see there are still birds near devils but around Minot all the way to the western border is dead.

Returned from a week hunting around Rugby and Balta. Started freezing up Friday morning and everything was solid by Saturday morning. Birds remained throughout the day, and large flocks of snows, blues and cackling geese stood on big bodies of frozen water, but by Sunday morning, they had moved on. Saturday evening was clear and cold, and we could hear A LOT of geese flying after 11 p.m.
