There were still plenty of Snows in SD last week but thinning as the week wore on. There is a blizzard right now a cross the eastern 1/2 of SD, thus the few that were left will be heading south.

They're starting to trickle into SD. But thats all I'm giving you guys for right now. Went out yesterday and saw about 10 to 15k. Going out this weekend to hunt them hard.

The snows are everywhere. The best hunting so far this spring was southern Illinois and southeast NEb

The Snows are really scattered from what I can tell. They are from AR to ND.

This weather pattern is real interesting with the Jet stream down over the Mason/Dixie line, meaning it is colder than average in the upper midwest region. SD got 2 to 8" of snow on Sunday(more snow west), and another 1-3 yesterday (more snow east). ND received liitle snow north of 94. I heard reports of some geese staying, some reports of the Snows heading back South out of SD. You better make sure to bring your white blind and clothing camo with if heading to SD to hunt in the next week as temps are not getting out of the 30s for the next week according to forcasts.

I also heard of guys getting few last weekend in ND as the leading edge pushed into ND last weekend before the big cold front hit. Some birds have stayed put.

I have had 16" of snow this week. But am too far east for it to matter to the Snows. Good luck.

The Snows did a fly over Tues and Wed of this past week. They went from NE and SD to SK. There still should be huntable #s in SD and ND, but it will entail lots of scouting.

From NE to IA to SD, there was good Juvi shooting this weekend from reports. The leading edge of breeders are into CA now.

It is the very tail end of the migration in ND right now, 95%+ were already North of the border by Monday of this week.
