    There should be at least a little push today and tommorow, mostly probably of teal and a few bigger ducks because the Jet stream is running straight south for the next day or so combined with these colder temps and the low pressure system moving east. They should be rolling straight out of...

    I always get a kick out of reading the reports, especially when some reports that the migration is over in Iowa and its not even November yet. But today I got my biggest laugh. Someone by the name of J. Kilbane reported that he and two other hunters limited out on ducks by 8:05am on October...

    We are having some issues with the DNR site so I thought I would try and upload the pdf here.

    There is an issue with the DNR server that is preventing access at this time. I am unable to post the migration report there. I will try and post it to the forums but it is in a PDF which the forums don’t support. I’m working on getting it converted at this time.[/img]

The website is www.blogtalkradio.com/duckjunkies, i dont...
  16. Snow Goose Reports & Information
    Here are some of the links that I have relied heavily on over the past couple of years following the spring migration. Maybe we could make this a sticky with this. Also if anyone has any other ones to add let me know and I will put it under these. Snow Depth http://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/nsa/...
  17. Southern Zone
    I saw alot of snows flying high and heading south today. Probably a few thousand from shooting light until about 10:00. No flippin' ducks though. Are these snows moving a sign of a push coming through this week?
