A big push of birds (5-10 thousand) moved right past Utah last Saturday afternoon and into the American Falls area for a few days. I watched huge strings of snows migrating into Idaho until sunset Saturday. Up until last Sunday's hunt my friends and I had done pretty crappy every time we hunted. Sunday was sunny with high winds and new birds. AWESOME! We probably wont see most of the geese in Idaho and Utah until late March with all this snow. Too bad.

This is an 11-87 of mine. The extractor made it through 15 to 20k rounds before it broke. Not bad.

Best thing about a Nova on a cold day of duck hunting? You will save lots of money on shells and you wont have to clean any birds. :lol3:
Nice work on the snows Hammer. We drew a big zero yesterday. Saw a couple thousand making their way north, I'll be waiting till next year for them I guess.
