The refuge is reporting 600,000 snow geese currently. That is slightly above a normal peak level and about two weeks early. I still feel we will have bird through March 20. If we don’t it will be the first year we have not held birds until then. Last year we came to close up the house in mid April and there was several thousand snow geese on the refuge. If you know anybody that want to hunt in the next few days (now-Feb 25) have them call me. We have the birds now! Last year at this time I don’t think there were 6 birds in Holt County.
