I hunted north about 3 hours drive. Lots of geese, snows and 3 types of Canada's. Limits every day. A few large flocks of ducks and a few cranes . Not much from up North yet but lots of locals and no other hunters. Farmers hate ducks and geese, no problem with permision. They say kill them all!

Cheers, Thanks for the news. How wet were the fields. Were you able to drive a truck out in them or did you have to do it the old fashioned way?

feilds where wet but ok to drive on . Lots of standing grain, and lots with grain cut but still in the fields. Our best fields seemed to be the ones with the grain removed. On these fields we could drive out on no problem and they seemed to hold the most birds.

Just wondering if there are any new reports on Manitoba?
I just returned from Sask. The farmers are getting their crops off finally. They have had a tough summer with the bad weather.
The fields in Sask are in good shape. We had no problem driving on them. I am pretty sure that it has been much wetter in Manitoba.
Lots of ducks this year. I have never seen so many mallards up there before. We hunted pea fields that had 20,000 ducks at a time in them.
