I would expect so with this cold front pushing through! It showed 18 degrees on the farmhouse thermometer back home.
It pains me to not be home hunting when our farm is already seeing respectable numbers of big ducks. We don't normally see that til right around opener. If things continue this way, we have a real opportunity at a smash mouth opener. :grooving:

They were all heading south while I was in MO yesterday. Didnt see many snows migrating but did see a few thousand ducks leaving yesterday morning heading your way. I am sure the frigid temp last night really helped push a lot more your way.

I'd say 150k from what I've seen in the air. I'd like to more than double that number in the next ten days, but I have my doubts.

At peak you guys are holding 300K+? That's crazy... That is nearly 1% of the estimated puddle duck population in the US. :eek:

The 150 is total birds. At peak we should hold 500k total between specks, snows, and ducks. 200k ducks was a routine figure when aerial surveys were conducted here in the past.

Correct me if I am wrong and I very well may be. Claypools was said to hold either 1 million ducks or was it just 1 million birds in total?

You should schedule a trip. Every spring we go snow goose hunting. We have seen 100's of thousands of birds on a number of trips. It is amazing. That alone is worth the trip. I'm serious. Put it on the to do list and make it happen.

I'm trying to plan a trip for next year. It was either a snow goose hunt in the spring or to the Eastern Shore to hunt the bay
