dose any one think the amountof ice will cause a difference in the flight pattern of our geese, due to a slow melt off.

I wouldnt think that it would. They really dont know about the ice yet. The weather patern has been a little different that the last couple of years. It is more on the normal for this time of year. I thik that in the next week we will start seeing snows in Nebraska (I hope)

There are already birds in C. Nebraska but there usually is by now! They will stack up there and the rest will hit SE Nebraska and the basins! There is still a lot of ice in Nebraska...10-16" but there is even more up North in the Dakotas....A buddy was ice fishing around Watertown and said there was 45" up there??? Is that far fetched I don't know but that will take a while to thaw!

The cold has been acting like a damn, and once the weather turns--watch out as they'll be heading north fast.

Was thinking we would see alot of birds by the weekend. Now that this front is moving through and puting more snow down, not sure how the hunting is going to be here in SE NE.

Talked to one of my buddy's in SW NE and he said over the weekend there were quite a few snows around. He was working so he didn't get a chance to get out but said they would have been easy pickings. It's down around Stratton if any of you are going to be in that area.

We've had some flocks showing up around McConaughy the last 4/5 days. Strange to see them showing up in central when they haven't started moving through SE NE all that much yet. It's supposed to start warming up throughout the state later this week and weekend. All those SE spots that got some snow and rain yesterday should be nice and muddy here soon.
