Nebraska Snow Goose Hunts 3/2/16

 

3 2 16 Curt NE 2

Today hunting was mixed. High field shot 17 with a banded ross goose. It was banded last summer as an adult. The other three fields were in the single digits. Some of the fields saw tens of thousands and others saw just a few thousand. The latest updated the count on the lake to 200,000 on 3/2/16. There was more birds on the lake the day before. When talking with the wildlife biologist he said the bird number vary daily. They will move from the lake to the basin to over by Kearny regularly. They learned this back when the guys were driving around reading neck collars.
