Feb 9 – Today Slowed

 

Today was the first slow day in a week. Many of the hunters had good shoots earlier in the week and long drives home so they left very early in the hunt resulting in very few being shot. High field was 22 snow geese. There was some snow north of us yesterday and the temps dropped. About 1 pm we started to see a few birds heading south, not huge numbers but some. Most just kept on trucking.

New groups tomorrow. Meeting time is 4:30 am. Warm weather and south winds should get them moving north again. There are a few groups on the ground in the area but still not many. Most of what we shoot is birds migrating through heading toward Missouri.
