The big advantage here is that although there are fewer birds there are also fewer waterfowl hunters, at least in the western part of the state. It has taken more scouting and leg work to get on birds but it has paid off. Now that things here have locked up I have been up on the green river below Fontenelle. I will be on a few more trips to Idaho to hunt the in-laws property as well.
Are you finding good numbers in your parts loner? Early season here was fantastic for numbers, but now it seems it has hit the lag when the locals have moved on and just befor the migration hits. And seeing this is my first season over here, I dont know what the migration brings this way yet.

Pure Awsomeness!!! I have never targeted divers because when the puddlers moved on I turned to geese when I lived in Idaho, but after scouting last weekend and seeing the numbers of GE's I'm gonna have to start chasing them here late season.
I have had them decoy on my puddler spread on rare occasions on the snake river (se Idaho) but my question for you Q is have you been able to deke these birds in with a puddler spread effectivley, or is that just a fart in the wind?
