Birds in Canada

On Monday, the 17th, I talked to a group of hunters who were 100 miles north of Saskatoon. They reported more snow geese were showing up every day. Some of the fields were white with geese.

Duck hunting was awesome.

That when farmers beg you to hunt those fields. Hunting does less damage than 20,000 ducks and geese.

A lot of the grain crops came out this past week.

They reported good shooting in harvested pea fields.

Tuesday reports were: 100 miles north, geese everywhere.

50 miles north of Saskatoon: Limits, just moving into area.

One fella said: the most mallards and pintails he has seen in 10 years.

Leaving on the 7th and cant wait. We have never been denied access to a field with crops in or out. The candians/people we have run into have been some of the nicest around. Some even do the scouting for us while we are hunting and get access for us. It is so different from around here.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
