Based on what I saw, I'd say they are on the move.

Getter, Were you in our great state of NV or over the hill?

Cool! Those nasty weather days out there can be great, as you showed! Now... if I could only dial in my shooting a bit.

Thanks for the update GetterDone, will be on the look out for birds showing up in Southern Nevada.
Good Shooting, nice birds for an afternoon hunt or any hunt for that matter.
Happy Hunting,

dismal, i agree-- I hunted the storm on thursday and it wasn't stellar, then went out yesterday in what are normally premium fallon duck conditions: Cold! Wind! sun! and not a damn thing flying around--Talked to an old timer for a bit, who hunts everyday, and he said its the worst he has seen it in at least 25 years. He said he hadn't even fired his gun in the last 3 days.---anyones else having any luck??

YES!!!! We went out early and took a couple of limits. Poor shooting is the only thing that stopped us from filling the 3rd limit. Today was the first day of a week long vacation for me. I hope the birds stay on the move! It is certainly cold enough to keepem coming.

Yeah its tough out there there. But did shoot my 1st spec in Nevada today, usually go to California to get those boys. I thought the recent storm would bring some new birds to the area. Doesn't seem like many new birds around.

A friend did well at Canvasback today with some buddies. All mallards and teal. Said they had to break some ice to make a hole but the birds were pretty steady, if not in big groups.

Three of us shot limits (mixed bag) out at the Canvasback this weekend. Looked like birds were moving in Saturday morning.

Geese have definitly moved into mason from last week. Last weekend saw two flocks of about 20, and this last weekend there was a thousand or so. Hopefully the ducks aren't too far behind. Didn't sound like too much shooting going on this weekend at mason for ducks.

Went out last saturday during the storm, it was snowing on us at key pittman, me and my buddy killed 10 birds.

I took a fatty drake redhead the first shot of the day that I'm going to mount.

Saw tons of geese out there, they flew right over the field and 3 were dropped.

Its definitely starting to pick up!!!!
