Hunted North of Squaw Creek Sunday March 4th, only shot one snow goose out of a group of four of us. The snow seemed like they were very decoy shy.
I would say that Squaw is holding about 350k birds or more. The birds are really in a pattern and fly north then turn around because of the snow in iowa.
Saw many specks try to land in our spread of 600+ decoys.
The mallards are also very thick. Over 10,000 birds landed 1000 yds. away from our blind in a soy bean field. Most birds I have ever seen landing up close.
Until this snow melts off in iowa the birds are going to be stuck in Squaw creek.
