Driving SW next Wednesday until I hit snows. If KS, will chase Darks too. If NE, the CO is on. Then wait for them to hit Iowa and lastly, ND for a walleye fishing/Snow goosin trip. Great time of the year.

Well Petester, I don't know what you do for work, but I would love to have a job like that to be able to make a lot of hunting stops. One of these days I would like to hit a multistate hunt and work my way up from the south following the birds.

Big push into s.e. Iowa today. Set and covered the blind but thunderstorms tomorrow and rain Tues. doesn't motivate me to drill in socks. Heard some shooting in Illinois.

Why oh why do I let you talk me into it every year

Drove from Lake of the Ozarks to DSM yesterday morning. Was surprised at how many snow geese I saw for central Missouri!

All right boys I need some help. My son is in Dover in the Air Force in coming out to Hunt snows. He can either come the first Saturday in March or the second Saturday in March what your thoughts. I know there’s a lot of ice down there and the long term weather pattern at Riverton doesn’t really show anything very much above 50 appreciate your help.
