As a newbie to all this I would have to agree with you. Looks like at or above average for planting and some surplus water throughout. Water=Ducks. Looking forward to going.................. :thumbsup:

There was a rumor floating around last year, that you were going to be able to use your e-caller along with dark and white decoys? Did this happen? We go by whatever the book says. It said white decoys only. I have been buying my license and stamp up there. Don't get the book in the mail anymore.

Yep - that was approved last year. You can use an e-caller with any color decoys, but you can only use snow goose vocalizations in the e-caller.

We were down to Sask Landing (north of Swift Current) a couple of weeks ago and the crops look awesome. We are going again next weekend, I will take some pics. Lots of water around, going to be a great year!!

Just got back from a Sk fishing trip. Crops looks really good, seeding varied quite a bit, but some crops are turning and I would say some of the peas are only a couple of weeks away from harvest. Lots of peas in the area, and the crops and yields could be record breaking this year for a lot of the crops. They are still getting a fair bit of rain which can stop any time though.

Canola field, still green

Durum crops are awesome, but mostly still all green

Heck of a fish!

Is canola still high? Are a lot of the fields in canola? I like it when the roost lakes are surrounded by canola, the birds have to fly for feed. You can shoot and not bust them off of the roost.

Not a lot of Canola in the area our land is in, mostly durum and lots of peas and lentils this year which I have not really seen before. There is a lot of Canola in Alberta, I have been north, south (not far south though), east and west of Edmonton and there is Canola everywhere.

Canola prices are still pretty good but they have dropped a couple bucks/bushel in the last 6 weeks or so. I listen to the prices every day, and some agriculture people did some bertha army worm testing in the east central part of the province in the last few days and there are worms evident. Not to bad yet and they are small right now (1/4") but it looks like some of the farmers are going to end up having to spray them, which really sucks.

I havn't confirmed my days off yet (boss is on holidays) but I am planning on going down to Sk, from Oct 12-16 or so. I will be hunting the opener here on Sept 1 either at the buddies farm or down home, really looking forward to it, and its coming fast.

Durum wheat, isn't that what they make pasta out of?

Yes, and some bread to, but pasta is the biggy.

Durum is the lighter colored wheat, standing stalk and seed.

Went down to the farm in Sk. last weekend. Crops are looking good, peas are taken off, and the durum is really close. Pic of one of my sons and wife, my son is 6'4. Not a lot of birds in the area yet, but lots of feed around when they get here, should be a good October for geese.

Eight days, I start the drive north. I'll get an update from my friends. See if any birds are showing up.
