Well said Badger Hunter, Not to change what you said but I had great luck the week of and after gundeer. But like you said Give or take a week. Also im sure we were not hunting the same place. so it is what it is. As my notebook shows me the the two days before our first accual snow fall up north were my best numbers the storm pushed south a bit more then what the almighty weatherman said. lol so they were moven out of our area about 6hrs ahead of what I had planed. I have a good short clip from 2days before this storm hit. Great number of Greenheads. I would say this year was like last year. but the "push" of birds was in many small 1-3 day windows. Last year we had more "pushes" almost back to back so it seemed a bit longer. I read also about how many birds are said to just fly right over and past wisconsin as they make there move. Im sure that has been going on for many years. No question tho I enjoyed this year very much. Learned a lot which is my fav. thing about waterfowling and dog training. You never stop learning.
Here is that link for the short clip
My best Highlight for the year tho was getting togeather with a few Fellow Jarheads that I served with in Iraq We got out for a few days to hunt some geese and ducks. It was a BLAST. we might be doing our 3/1 India Co. Reunion up here next year because so many other guys that couldnt make it want to do it next year. CANT WAIT!!
