Central Oregon Slump

Postby pisspoorfisherman » Sun Dec 09, 2012 9:04 pm

Was able to talk the First Sergeant into letting me skip out a little early today and get a few hours of hunting in. The last time I was out was a little over two weeks ago and it was VERY slow. Today seemed a little better but I was still disappointed. After sitting over decoys for 45 minutes and seeing nothing, I was running low on shooting light. I managed to kick a few divers up hiking between Wikiup and Crane, but that was it. What the heck is going on????

We've got our 1st push of birds known as calendar migrators(which are usually this years hatch & hens) now we just have to get some weather up North & heavy winds on the Columbia to push em down to us here n central or. THE MIGRATION HAS DEFINATELY STALLED

i've done well hunting central oregon as of late.. population does seem to be down from normal this time of year though. as said above i'll blame it on the weather and hope that a good storm will push passive migrants down our way!
