I was out today and I think the migration has begun to move in to NE!!! We saw nonstop birds from around daybreak untill around 11 oclock. Then again from 3 till dark. Lots of birds flying but not much working the decoys. :salude: :salude: :salude:

Hey, I am from WI, and new to the site. We are planning a trip Spring Snow Goose hunting. Wondering if anyone knows where they are at now? Where is the best place to go? Any suggestions? We normally go to South Dakota, but I'm thinking NE, Any tips. Thanks :laughing:

Well if you plan on going to NE you better hurry, with the weather the way it has been here in SD, they will be here soon.

Last year we went the 1st of March, but I know with the weather they are going to move earlier than usual. I think we will still hit South Dakota, not sure where to go in NE. Maybe the border, Got any ideas? It was difficult last year to get them in, they get smarter every year.

I saw a bunch more birds moving north today. If your going to go some place I would say South Dakota. So far (I know it is only 2 days into the season ) they are unpredictibale. Good luck in what ever you do. You can PM me for places to go in NE. :salude: :salude: :salude:

I know of a flock of about 150 20 miles west of where i'm at. And yesterday it was 55 here, and today its suppose to be in the 30's. But I don't think we will get the big push for atleast another 2 weeks. Its supposed to snow tonight and tmr. So we will see.

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). I hear reports of some geese staying, some reports of the Snows heading back South. 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 doing Ok last weekend in SW IA.

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

The reason I post about SD is becuase with the cold weather and snow noth of NE, it should act as a dam to some extent, not encouraging the birds to head north.
