Saskatchewan Update as Saturday 26th

Postby captritter » Mon Sep 28, 2009 10:32 am

A friend of mine just got back from Prince Albert Area and said crops were like at 10% harvested. Lots of Conola harvested but ducks and geese dont eat it. They said that no migratory ducks to speak of and what they did kill were local ducks in brown phase. Still said that snows were on the move and they got into them mildly, but not like in years past. Best day like 19 snows and 14 mallards. Temps were in the 70-80's and mosquitos were a problem!!! He did say that harvest is in full swing in that area and reports from farther south were better than what they did ?? Colder temp first week of October are being called for!!

We are leaving for Saskatchewan on the 6th of Oct should arrive around the 8th, hopefully the migration will be in full swing when we arrive there. We will be hunting about 3 hours due west of Prince Albert, Heard some really cold weather and snow was forecast around yellowknife, NT if that's the case that should get them moving south. :smile:

Oh no!! Fractured heel?? Painful as hell!! I broke both of my calcaneouses 9 years ago and had my right heel fully reconstructed. That's the worst thing to break other than a femur (which I came close to breaking 2 years ago). Sorry to hear about it, your season is not over, just hampered. Percocets will be your best friend, unfortunately. Didn't mean to hi-jack the Sask. report. Just sending out a condolence to a fellow hunter. Good luck and keep us posted! :sad:
Give me some quack and I'll never work again

Thanks, I need a good assessment fom the doc..maybe it is only a hairline fracture and it will be put in a cast and not operated on as i am diabetic..so far i can now stand up and move around with the splint and crutches... the swelling has gone down it is a little black and blue. :sad: I get by with tylenol 3 and or heavy dose of 600mg Advil
if I can go my son will plunk me down in a field and I will us a mini-setup and pe-grassed blind

Sorry to hear about your heel :sad: , hope you can still make it to Saskatchewan. We are leaving tomorrow (Oct 6th) and by the weather forecast on AccuWeather.com it's going to be awfully cold highs in the 30's lows in the teens with winds out of the North, with those temps and wind it should be pretty good hunting. :thumbsup:

Some good news the foot doc x-rayed me and I have a nice clean fracture in the middle of my foot and the swelling has gone down 70% and I no longer have the splints or cast just an Ace tensor bandage ice and elevation..So no operation, screws or stel plate or moon boot so I am going on Friday on a three day trip as I can drive and figure I can hobble into position for a sandhill crane pass shot and set up small spread or have the option of joining my buddy snow goose 1 and all I have to do is set down in a lawn chair in white coveralls and my son and his gang will set up.
I plan on shooting as much as I can in three days and hopefully post some pics of my shortened hunt.
Some off the gang have indicated the weather has been cold and is getting wet and they can't negotiate the black dirt side roads and the fields are wet and there is about 75% crops done..plus there is less migrant activity compared to last year and the fields
have not been consistent due to the full moon wierd feeding schedules.

I guess i will start packing lite spread...I am 80% sure I am going have to rest up the leg
Good Luck to you boys drive them down to me
