The only thing you will be hitting hard is ice, and only to watch empty skies.
My forecast has 2-4 for fargo

Same. And I believe with like 16 degree temps as a high that's gonna freeze some water up pretty tight. Those birds are going to need water. Can't just survive on these "groceries" that they are being handed to them up north. You may be right that they may not come through, but don't think with 2- 4 inches of snow and temperatures of 16 as a high is going to keep those birds staying up there to much longer with no water

About an inch forecasted up here in Fayette, Ia and looked at the forecast for Lindstrom, MN which is an hour northeast of the twin cities and there forcasting 2-3 inches.

2-4", 2-3" 1-3" with 30 MPH winds will blow off the fields and not hinder birds from feeding in the least. When they call for 8+" up north then I might start anticipating.

Okay, then you just stay home and wait for that 8+ inches of snow. I'll let you know what happens the rest of the week.

Same here.. Just lucky enough to have some time off, May or may not be a good decision. But like I'm sure you've heard 1000+ times, "bad day out hunting beats a goodd at at work."

I have over two weeks to use before the end of the year but I can't seem to take a day without coming back the next day to a bunch of screwed up shat.
