we saw a pretty good sized group, a hundred or so, this weekend. With a few other flights with some mixed in. Looks like they are getting around hutchinson/wichita kansas area.

We have had quite a few in the area, but yesterday and today there were a ton heading north here in Missouri. My brother hunted in AR for the last two days and has killed around 50+ both days. Said alot of the geese he was hunting were all heading north. He was a couple of hours into Arkansas.

Smithville Lake in Missouri near Kansas City is probaly holding around 5,000 snows for about a month now. They are roosting right along the dam and in the morning and evenings heading north into the fields to feed.

Don't know about S. Missouri but tonight I saw bout 10,000 snows near the Polo-Lathrop exit flying over I-35. They were flying east in to some fields. Pretty high up tho. I'm pretty sure they are going from Smithville Lake to the fields at night. Also saw about 2000 canadas in a corn field just right outside Kearney near Dogwood Elementary coming off the lake.

Just FYI

There is a ton around smithville. Went out yesterday west of town and saw probaly around 50-60,000. My buddy went out to Trimble Missouri which is like 10 miles north of Smithville and right by the lake and they saw around 100,000 and killed around 36. So good numbers around Smithville lake and I heard there is reported to be around 500,000 snows on the Grand Pass Conservation Area between KC and Columbia.

I can definitely tell you that Grand Pass is not holding anywhere near 500K. There are a few birds around, but nothing like that. I went up to look around this weekend along with several others, they are estimating 60K and I would say that even that is pushing it. Plus the geese that are there, have been there for a while and have PHD's!!!

Several groups of a few hundred birds observed flying north this evening about 25 miles north of St. Louis, MO. Most likely birds will migrate with full moon tonight.

However, current ice conditions and potential winter storm will likely push birds back south and keep more birds from migrating until early next week.

This weekend, especially Sunday and Monday has some potential for good hunting, but the best chance will be next weekend with forcasted warm up.

No snow, but that will change tomorrow and Friday. We are predicted to receive 2-4 inches of snow and sleet , and some freezing rain too.

Most bodies of water have a couple of inches of ice.

I wouldn't mind if it the birds came up cuz I have a sand pit close to a hunting spot that never fully freezes, and the snow geese know it :biggrin:

A few thousand snows were observed flying north Sunday afternoon. Not very large groups, but one contained 3,000 that was heading west/northwest likely towards Mark Twain lake. Going to give it a try tomorrow.
