That's insane but not surprised by the amount.

I dont chase them. But we have alot of sheet water here haven't seen any for 2 days . And no where near other years when we've had like conditions. Kinda surprised me , you may be right.

My brother was in nw Mo. Suppose to hunt last Friday ,Saturday and Sunday. Hunted Friday and outfitter had to scramble to get spread picked up as of flooding. He and his son came home with 2. He drove back to Illinois sat. For what thats worth.

Not sure how accurate the web page is but Loess Bluffs had 1.3 m on their bird count.

Well another curve ball in life! 8 of us booked a hunt with the Snow Goose Commander and we were to be in South Dakota for a Friday/ Sunday hunt.
I will not throw stones as with the weather and the mess we have had to deal with down here. He is still in NW mo and gave us other dates we could be in SD due to he has not moved up there yet.
Thanks to Brent and his reports and phone calls the dates he gave us I am afraid the snows could be out of there by then. We do get out money back and we did try to get with another outfitter on very short notice as many of the others still work regular jobs!
I had never hunted in SD for snows and I will have to wait another year!

Went out again today looking for some snows. Still a lot of ice on the lakes, sheet water in fields. Found a few hundred but nothing like normal

No snow geese north of Huron but shitloads of SNOW. Just before I left Huron the flood warning came across my phone for Sunday through Thursday. Most all that water will end up in the Missouri below the damns.

In North Central MO today. Not many here but there are enough to make it fun. Long stretches between flocks though.
