I wish they would hurry up and get up here. I'm bored off my *** and going thru serious withdrawals. I told my wife I was sufferring from depression. She said says who? I told her - says me :rolleyes:

I was outside last night about dark and saw my first flock of white birds. :thumbsup: About 100 of them flew over my house. I live about 6 miles north of the Kansas border.

I live in Marion IL. in the bottom 1/4 of the state. In the last week and a half I have seen atleast 40,000 snows going north. I heard there are about 20,000 snows/blues at Carlyle Lake...good luck

I was hunting south of springfield last weekend there was about 50,000 snows and blues in the area we were hunting. Hoping they will stay down there for a few more weeks so i don't have to chase them as far. If they stay around there its only like 5hour drive.

HOLY COW!!! We have started to get the mother lode of white birds here in SE NE!!! The last 2 days the birds have started to flood in to the area. All the major lakes are froze yet but the small ponds and any open water are just AWESOME :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Every spot of open water is holding birds and all the corn fields are starting to get feed in. Didnt hunt today just scouted and cant wait untill the morning :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Good thing snows don't move through CT, If you ever shot a speck or anything else for that matter here, you would not only get a fine but it's automatic loss of license for 1 year as well as possible loss of gun vehicle and equiptment depending on how "the man" felt that day.

This weather is terrible. A lot of birds left the basin on Saturday and haven't yet been reinforced. It doesn't look like it's going to be a very good year. More snow and cold temps expected at the end of the week.
say what?
