I figured I would keep you guys up to date on what is moving down here, since I hunt up here north of aberdeen most of the weekends, but during the week im down in mitchell for school. Here is what sand lake reported:
Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern South Dakota has
recorded increases in the numbers of Canada geese and ducks. The Refuge is
holding 2,000 Canada geese and 60,000 ducks. Biologist Bill Schultze says
mallard and green-winged teal populations are up, and ruddy ducks and
lesser scaup are also showing up. He reports the area’s corn harvest is
just beginning, but many farmers have completed their soybean harvest.
Alot of ducks moved down this last week because of the fronts that came through, the week before the number was 34,000, and the geese were 1,600. I think the numbers are higher then that though, just from driving around tonight I seen alot, but didn't get a field to hunt
I also seen a few flocks of snow geese, I am guess there was about 150-200, but I didn't pay much attention to them.
