All the folks I've talked with up there tell me they got less than 30% seeded, some much less. The word is that the govt will be paying farmers $50 per acre that went unseeded. Lots of water, very little crop. The western part of the province went pretty much uneffected. The Foam Lake, Fishing Lake, Preeceville, Wadena area was pretty much a disaster. Rained almost every day in May. If you are going, expect lots of hunting pressure on the available cropped land unless you have exclusive hunting rights.

There should be some winter wheat which might get harvested early and you might find some unharvested moldy peas still on the vines which is good blind cover and a terrific shoot as these will keep the geese on these lucky fields longer.
Other normal crops will not be ready for harvesting until late Sept. Almanac says Oct is a warm and dry month so some fields will be driveable..oh yes the sandhill cranes are there in great numbers and so are the local ducks
