Default Weekend Cold Front





I hunted in Central Iowa Last year. Shot my first bunch Gadwall on Oct. 25th and a Pinny that day too. It was a migration day, we had a front come through with rain and storms.

It will be interesting to see what comes from this front coming through.

A Small Cold front forecast to be pushing through Canada into North Dakota Friday, Northern South Dakota Saturday Morning, and should be through most of Iowa by Saturday night. Winds switching from SW to NNW at 15-20 mph Saturday Morning/Miday with Temps dropping from Mid 50's to Mid 30's by 10 PM. Saturday/Sunday look to good day to be on the marsh instead of chasing ringnecks.

Stationary front moving through on Monday from the north but I dont think anything will be riding that wave. Could bring some clouds and rain.

Good Luck Everybody.

Unfortunately, I have to take the girlfriend camping this weekend. Maybe she'll get cold and I'll get to hunt Sunday.

Too late. They came through yesterday. It's over now until the middle of December.

Why would you shoot the only birds around?? Season should be closed. Seeing a dog work and have a rooster get up at your feet, is enough to give a guy a chubby. I refuse to hunt them now a days, id feel to bad if I shot the only couple birds for miles. Give um a chance to come back. Or go to a game farm, or head to sodak.

So should I go to Princeton swamp this weekend or stay at the wood duck hole?
