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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
