Hunting was mixed in the last week.

Birds that were present 2 weeks ago mostly left. Especially southern MB where 8+" of snow fell almost 2 weeks ago. But even areas where it did not fall the birds left-like wholesale migration. :eek: An area that normally holds good #s of Snows was completely devoid of Snows But there were new arrivals this past Thursday and Friday making for better #s seen.

Guides are encroaching more and more and becomming a problem in gaining access to feilds. And the BSE (Mad Cow) hurt oppurtunities too (permission denied to Americans, and I hunted these farms previously, so a tough one). I can not nor do not blame the farmers/ranchers in regards to the BSE, as I too would be plenty POd if price went from $1.00 to .35. It really hurt the ranchers of CA because of the Big AG interests of USA influenced the US Farm Policy in regards the shipping the cattle into the US. (96% of the cattle in MB are processed in the US.). Most farmers/ranchers are holding on by a thread financially from what I could tell. :(

Overall all it was frustrating first 2 days (BSE, guides, lack of Snows) and then had some morons the shoot the roost :pissed: :pissed: 1.5 miles away on Tuesday morning 15 minutes before legal :pissed: But the trip improved as the week wore on, so it turned into a decent hunt. I loved visiting with the local folks for sure. :thumbsup:

I heard that many Snows had pulled out of MB over this past weekend.

The snows were crossing into Sk in force a few days ago. The did a majot flyover of ND with many going from NE to SK. There should be good huntable #s there.
