I went out for a quick hunt on some bigger water near Fergus today.

Some larger flocks of mallards, and ringers too.

Nothing much wanted to decoy with the exception of hoodies and a surprising number of cans.

Hunted way out west yesterday afternoon 'til sunset. Thought it would be a slam dunk.

Saw very few birds, and most of those were EXTREMELY decoy shy. We need some new birds.

Walter,

North of Fergus is a little out of my stomping grounds.

From what I saw this morning, I think I might switch to field hunt geese for a while

I went deer/pheasant hunting over the weekend, drove through Appleton and didn't see anywhere near the number of hunters we usually do. The campground is usually packed, but on Friday it was empty, and Sunday there were maybe 6 rigs in the lot.

On all the lakes and swamps and pretty much everything we checked out west, there were very few ducks to be seen. A handful of flocks of geese were migrating south, but nothing really impressive.

Went out friday and saturday, no ducks around! Saw about 2,000 mallards using a cornfield, talked to the farmer who owned the land but we couldent get permission. He was a real nice guy but I guess someone else already had permission. Besides that we dident see much, we got 3 hooded mergansers, 3 gwt, and a pintail friday. Hunted a cut bean field saturday and shot 3 geese. Only decoyed 1 flock of four, and dropped three but all three were banded. That saved the trip! The birds lit in the pocket about 15 yards away, I doubled and my buddy got 1. He was dissapointed that he missed the other considering the three we shot all had bands, I bet the one that got away was also banded. Lots of geese around, saw plenty of EPP's and cacklers along with the usual giants, even saw a couple small flocks of snows but no ducks to speak of.

Saturday morning ended up with one gadwall and saw a few flocks. On Sunday morning I ended up with 5 ducks and 1 hooded merganser. Sunday was the best hunting I've had this year. There were still the same amount of ducks that I've seen all year, I was just set up in the right place. Other than those ducks I didn't really see a whole lot. We defintely need some birds to get pushed down.

Went out this morning in north metro. Got two reheads and saw a few buffies, and a flock of divers alomst came to us. Saw some mallards, but nothign much, and surprised by the lack of geese. My brother and Grandson did miss a nice fat sawbill smile So I got to raz them a bit.

Surprised at the lack of ducks, and I was not expecting it to be great, but really few of them.

Pretty dead in central OT county, but I heard reports of some good numbers of divers that trickled in over the weekend..

Saturday yielded a few flocks of mergansers that decoyed so nice(didn't shoot..) and 2 redheads that came in without hesitation. I took the drake, let the hen swim. Saw a few other flocks flying..

Just in time for deer opener this coming weekend, the weather looks like it's going to change a wee bit. Canada will be getting much colder, and looks like we may get some cold (and snow storm?) next week... bring some birds south!

Good in NW minnesota. Shot limits of mallards on Thursday morning and Sunday morning. We also shot limits of geese Thursday, Friday and Sunday morning. Lots of birds around.

Went on Thief Lake Saturday morning, not many birds but sounded like alot shooting to the NE of us. All other hunts on fields. Pictures in the 2008 waterfowl photo thread.

      Now is there a locomotive somewhere in the lake to find?

      I had a pizza when the new folks took over, and it was not good. However, most everything that I have had since then has been really good. I had the walleye tacos this weekend and the weekend before that had the italian beef sandwich. My general sense has been to stick with burgers and sandwiches. They did badly overcook my brother's walleye sandwich and fries the other weekend, but it was a busy night so I get that it happens. They seem to have good crowds every night, so maybe kitchen staffing is an issue.   Last Sunday (a week ago) around noon there were only two girls working at Moosebirds with a line 10 people deep stretching out the door towards the street. My simple guess is that it's a struggle to find enough workers but that could be a naive assumption on my part.

      Sorry hit the wrong button.... For a place to stay on the Minnesota side of rainy your options are, Thunderbird lodge, Island View lodge or Sha Sha resort. All are 10 -12 miles east of Int’l Falls on Hwy 11. Another option is the new hotel in Rainer which is 3 mile east... I believe it’s called the Cantilever Hotel. Each has positives depending on what you’re looking for...   As for fishing...the walleyes are starting to transition to deep water. I went out for an hour Saturday evening and caught 2...the largest being 25”( in the picture) My wife and I were out from noon to 5 on Sunday (yesterday). We were fishing jig and minnows. Caught 18 walleys; 5 in the slot 14-16”, 1-18 1/2” all the rest 13” or smaller. Did a lot of running around to find active fish. Caught fish in 20’ and saw a lot of mayfly caucuses floating in the water still and a lot of minnows. Water surface temperature was 78 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s only going to get better...

      While the grandkids were here we got pizza from the landing.    Good thing we got two for the four of us.  Their 12 inch pizzas were about 8 or maybe 9 inches.   And over baked on top of that.   Pushing 20 bucks each.    I hope the rest of the menu isn't as disappointing as those pizzas.

      If you found it again, with the warm water it would be easy to check out with a mask and flippers.  relatively shallow, close to shore.
