Things are looking good

Postby Utter chaos » Wed Sep 25, 2013 2:35 pm

Last year down here around grants pass medford area the migration never showed up till. 1week after season ended. Well things are looking good for the past 5days it has rained an we are finally getting water for the opener an it has snowed 2 days in a row on hwy 140. Hopefully winter comes a lil early and pushes everything down to us sooner so we can enjoy great hunting all season.

The weather is moving ducks, Central OR has more than I have ever seen for opener... Its nice to have every location scouted as an option for the first hunt. Good luck, only 9 days!!!! :grooving:

I hope so ! last year with the fly-over in southern Oregon to the Sac basin , it was hard to find something to shoot . Sac
refuge had water and lots of birds but , this year it MIGHT be different with early birds showing up and the weather ? :grooving:

I don't know the Sac valley that well but, last year I drove through that way just before and just after Christmas. I saw alot of birds in fields by I-5 that looked to be rice paddies of some sort. I think it may have been a WMA.

Last year on our way up , we seen more birds than ever before I thought Wow , it's going to be great on the border , NO !
It was very slow , not many birds in the area for a lack of water even though we had private land to hunt . This year , maybe
alot of birds but , with the shutdown of refuges for them to loaf in , atleast we will be able to see what's there ? what a Shame !

We are All in the same Boat , with a ------ up Government !

I donr think it will affect me since there are none near me but i am wondering how bad it will affect people hunting near a shut down refuge with no pressure to push the birds out an keep them moving around. it seems like the refuges will just get packed full of birds an they will have no reason to leave we all no the birds learn where its safe.
