Heading up there for some hunting in a few days. Anyone have any info on the numbers up there right now, or any links to websites or forums to visit to see how the hunting is and what to expect?

Not sure where everywhere is, but the numbers up here according to many regulars who visit each year, is waaaaay down. More have been coming in as the week has progressed. Wish we would have waited at least a week or two to come down.

How many birds did you shoot with how many people? We just finished hunting near Melfort, and the numbers of birds were low in comparison to years past. 3 of us shot 70 birds in a week, which isn't alot. Every group of hunters we ran into said the same things we did, that the numbers weren't real good, and that decoying was difficult. The weather wasn't doing us any favors either.
