Huh. Opposite of what I have been hearing. I will be headed down this weekend. I know they haven't been flying until the last hour. These high pressure sunny days aren't helping.

Got to my pit at 10, at about 10:01 I was done. Perfect timing for sure! Sounded like alot of guys around Canton today killed birds.

I'm two hours south of Pekin . There is a few here but nothing like I hoped it would be . Desperately wanting snow up north . Doesn't seem likely tho .

That's awesome KillerK. We went down to The Fox this morning and were iced out. I may try and go knocking, but I have had no luck in the recent past. You have given me new resolve though. Congrats on getting some new ground that is a challenge!!!

Hey Grossy... buddy of mine was upland hunting down by Lincoln and said there were quite a few geese around down there. Didn't see a ton of geese Saturday, but saw more than I thought was around Sunday afternoon heading out to feed in the Canton area. Surprising number of specks and three times as many canadians as we saw on Saturday.
