Central Sask & Central Alberta

Postby pmahler » Sat Nov 28, 2009 6:20 pm

Hey there fellas, I spoke with a good friend in Nokomis SK as well as a friend in Dundurn SK &it appears that the birds STILL aren't down yet....is anybody else/everybody else still seeing the same thing? Are they still north? it appears that the lack of snow cove & the fact that the rivers are still open is obviously keeping the mallards around feeding away w/out a care in the world.
Ideas anybody?

Lemme know what you guys think. I live in Montana (Western) & the birds have come down this way around Mid December the last couple years but it seems given the weather it is going to be even later.

All the best & any information is welcomed regarding the migration.

Best,

As far as I can see on my return trip back from the area near central Sask and Alberta with the nasty storm the second week of Oct and temps always below zero and the smaller ponds frozen over there is little open water except on the big rivers and deep lakes and only the local ducks and geese seem to hang around. all along the 600 mile trip there were birds a mile high heading south
By all accounts it is customary by Remembrance Day most of the guns are silent and the birds have long crossed the border.
a friend from north battleford had called me yesterday and mentioned there was no snow on the ground well today we sent the snow from Alberta to Sask along with minus 10-15 degrees weather.
In Alberta on Nov 1 they lifted the ban on hunting near the river's edge in some places
