I haven't looked at any surface observations yet. I'll ask though. Couldn't only help all of us.

It's Started!

First time since March 2013 Horicon has went negative in count week over week. Birds are leaving. Please come. Come fast. Lost 5K birds in five days.

GWT dropped considerably while Mallards stayed almost the same. Canada numbers doubled.

I can't wait to get out tomorrow morning. Might try this afternoon, but afternoon hunts kinda stink around here. Seem's like they dont fly til after shooting time. One of the young ones I hunt with called me yesterday about 5:30 and told me he had a bunch of geese and some mallards in their field. :thumbsup: Thanx for all the info KK. Good luck to ya.
