Default pool 9 Lansing area divers?





Was wondering if people have been seeing any cans or blue bills yet. Usually here by now but been a funny year so far. Thanks

There are ducks on the mississippi. Some of them are divers and some of them are not. Question answered.

Not many have moved in and stayed. Last week we hunted and the majority of them were migrating over sky high without dropping down. I haven't personally seen a bluebill yet. Not quite on pace with the average year.

The sky high birds you see are just cans relocating on the pool. Every morning they do the same routine. Cans love to fly high, from where I hunt I can watch a cloud of them get up and in less than a couple miles they are nose bleed height. A couple miles down the river they will tornado in like snows.
