We have had quite abit of rain the last week and it has created some very wet fields. Good for the duck, bad to get all your gear into the fields. The past few weeks i've been hunting a partly flooded standing corn field, there is a pretty good pocket of water that is holding inside the corn. The ducks use it sometimes, but when there is wet barley and wheat fields around they want to hit those alittle better than the corn right now. Gotta wait for the cold weather and some snow, then they will be into the corn. There are lots of mallards and teal, both blue and green wing, also have seen acouple pintails and widgeon. As always there are tons of big canada geese and some small grops of snows flying around. Where abouts are you gonna be hunting west of Winnipeg?

Lots of birds in south interlake. Duck hunting has been great. I was at Oak Hammock yesterday and they said there was 60,000+
Canada's there. Just starting to see a few snows around my area.

We'll be up in the Minnedosa area at the end of the week for some shooting. Looks like things should dry out a bit and hopefully we can get some wind!!

Heading up to Minnedosa/Newdale/Sandy Lake area - will arrive Oct. 8th and head home on the 16th. Any updates for these areas would be greatly appreciated if available. Looking to hunt more for ducks than geese. But, we'll take the geese too. Can't wait to get up there as my trip last year had to be cancelled at the last minute due to a family member having a near fatal car accident.

Just got back from 2 weeks in the interlakes area. WOW ducks!!! Limits abound. We pretty much lived in th boat and didnt go after many geese like we normally do. Shoal lakes was where it was at. Flooding everywhere! Launched the boat from the road lol. Seemed like the geese numbers were down. Confirmed that with a check at Oak Hammock. As of the 8th the goose count was at like 60k or something. Way down from 150+k of last year.

And a thank you to the pricks skybusting with a guide just south of Stonewall 4-5 days ago. Enjoyed having you @****** a quarter section over from us. We get birds decoying after they skipped over you guys and you let rounds loose to scare em off? REALLY!? You guys must of had a workout chasing cripples a quarter mile away.....its a wonder why you couldnt get birds to decoy.....idiots.....

My group hunted the Sandy Lake/Newdale/Minnedosa area from Friday Oct 8 thru Friday Oct 15. Very little duck activity at all for this entire area but we were fortunate to find a good number of fields to hunt dark geese that saved our trip. I would have never imagined going to this area and finding so few ducks but we made the best of it. As always, the Canadian farmers and the beautiful land make the trip very special each year.
