Don't expect others to do your scouting for you.

Sounds to me that he's asking if there's any birds in the area not whose field they r in but I'll tell u this ochoco the birds r slowly startn to show in montana so they should b in the malhuer area now. Don't get bummed by some whose even farther from malhuer then u are that's not helping you any by stating the obvious. Noone's gonna give u the specifics but farmers over there hate snows eatn their winter wheat.

Ochoco u may want to put an ad on craigslist for over there & see if that helps you could also call down to the malhuer refuge & ask a bioligist if anythings going on that's a start. So what u got 3legs anything that can actually b useful information or you just gonna bump your gums ochoco sounds like a newcomer to the sport & people like you that just bash em should b really proud of yourselves

Careful.... You are doing more bashing than many. :huh:

My advice was simple and spot on. I could have spent more time and gave a longer reply but many people on this site lack reading comprehension skills. Pretty hard to not understand my original reply. :beer:

Ok... There are no snows yet. They usually show up after the season is over. Was that more helpful?

I stand by my original reply, it wasn't rude or "bashing". It was however truthful and honest. Nobody else is putting diesel in my tank so the info i find while scouting belongs to me.
If all anybody was really looking for was a bird report to see if booking a guide was worthwhile you can look that kind of info up on waterfowl surveys (I'm not telling where, find it yourself), or even better, talk to the guides. Their opinion should be more trusted than some random dude off the internet, right?
I'm sure the craigslist ad will pay off in spades.


I'll help out - the skies are so full of snows its blocking out the sun and every time a landowner sees a guy in camo or with decoys in a truck he flags you down and begs you to come set up in one of his fields. After the hunt he offers you his daughter.

Willing to load up the truck on that intel?

Would you tell a stranger where to find the elk?

Don't feel bad, I wouldn't.

I know a place to pass shoot snows in Malhure county 1st week of november. They all head out in 2 days. If the wind is blowing A bunch of guys could line out on the 5000' ridge and blast away. Same deal farther east, We watched 10's of thousands fly over a couple years at thanksgiving.
