Snow Goose 2013

Recommended Posts

creepworm

I have seen a few snows in the Brookings area while out ice fishing, but by no means a huntable population. Some gravel roads are in pretty tough shape around here after the inch or so of rain we got Friday into Saturday, but thing can change by the time the geese arrive.

Going to be sloppy sloppy sloppy along the hwy 14 corridor tomorrow; cool down for the weekend might firm up the ground a little. Lead edge overshot the snowline just like they did last friday.

Camera at Huron airport shows snow on the ground. High of 40 predicted today. Nothing in the 10 day forecast above 27 with 5 chances of snow and 2 small windows of SE winds. You might stumble onto a few scout flocks that far north but sounds like a "wild goose" chase to me along hwy 14.

Nothing above freezing in the 10 day for our camp. Hearing some speculation that the snow line may funnel the geese west to the Missourri to get north. Hope the juvies don't follow. Might be a bust this year.

I was actually just thinking about that, honestly. Those snows are stacking up around Sioux Falls. They certainly can't travel straight north with the snow pack we have. But it's high and dry to the west. I don't think Bismarck has a lick of snow. Hmm....

No snow on the ground in Pierre for a month and no snow geese either. We get very few snow geese. Tons of birds from Yankton to south end of lake thompson

Heres from Sioux Falls I believe.

The National Weather Service Doppler Radar can detect non-precipitation targets in addition to all types of precipitation. Today, teams of geese were detected moving in a northward direction to the west of Sioux Falls. Here is a snapshot of the radar at 1121 am CDT

A few weeks ago I was seeing some snows here in SW MN. Lately I have not see one of them. Apparently they're all west of me. Go get em boys.

There are, however, about 912 gabillion honkers all over the place.

That's a pretty cool video...I am guessing to pull out the guns after the camera was down and they made another swing in grin

Won't be long for us NoDak boys! Quite a snow line setting up right next to the hwy 2 line right now & it's melting fast. Went out & shot a bunch of clays today. I REALLY hope I can get a day or two off when they come in!!!

Headed up Tuesday to have the spread deployed for Wednesday. Should be a big movement day. Mid 50's and good south wind. Then a another cold spell forecasted.

Took the edge off, set small spread, turned on caller and shot a few. Best part was the 2.50 price of the license and the minimal amount of fuel burned. wink

Headed to SoDak the next two weekends in a row. getting a little worried about the second weekend, but hopefully it'll lead to a nice juvie hunt. Otherwise we'll be heading across the state to NoDak second weekend!

Scout flocks big into nodak today. If we decoy even a hundreth of a percent of what I saw by Groton on my way to camp, I didn't bring near enough shells.

I've heard reports of snow geese north of Bismarck already, but I have to think those are the exception, not the norm. Made a trip east of Fargo yesterday and was pleased to see black dirt steaming through the feet of snow left on the fields. Only a matter of time now. 44 degrees today for a high, plus a strong wind. Gonna get cold again by this weekend, but not enough to stop the thaw. We might actually have a decent migration this year if this slow and steady melt continues. I'd love to see the birds stick around for longer than 24 hours for once.

Utterly defeated. Saw more geese than I have ever seen in a day but could not get any to commit. Amazing sights today that can't be described. Can't imagine what the number would be on total waterfowl seen. Finish my drink and back at it in 6 hours. Windshift will help is my motto tomorrow.

Leaving this evening and hunting Sodak for the weekend. Expect a slight stall in the migration and some greasy fields in the future! This might be THE week for South Dakota snows ladies and gentleman. Heard lots of reports that the juvies have been mixed in with the adults.

      I would love to join can I get the information. Can you please call me at 9526877929
    • whateverisbiting
      I will be going to my cabin a couple hours drive.  I will bring all my food and gas with me and not go to any stores there.  If I still have to work from home I may work there self quarantine for 14 days.  Then you become a local.  Then you have to do the same thing coming back home if going out to stores there.  Small towns have few hospitals and very limited equipment.  That is a real concern.  But hopefully will not blow up with very low population density.  Can't wait to put the dock in, have a G&T, and put out the lighted bobber!

      Thankful for my faith in God, my great wife, I have 3 nieces and a nephew do not see them too much. Be thankful for family all of you. I don't have hardly any family left but really enjoy those nieces and nephew when I see them. Thankful for the guys and gals on this site. I have learned lip reading even more and that is a huge help for me right now. I'm also thankful for my  Yamaha boat motor best thing I ever bought😀 Thankful my wife loves to fish and comes with anytime she can. She is laid off now but boy do I love being with her. I work second shift Mon-Thursday she works during the week and every weekend it feels like a second honey moon!

      I am grateful to have my faith in God, without my faith life's trials would be much more difficult to navigate.   I am grateful for my family, they are source of a great deal of strength.  There is nothing like raising my 2 favorite people on earth everyday.  I screw up alot, they have always given me a reason to keep going forward.  My wife is the most amazing woman in my life.  She has to be great, to deal with me everyday. Grateful for my father and my sister, we have always had a close family, but going through my mother's battle and ultimate death from cancer this last year, I know it would have been next to impossible to deal with without them.  I can't wait for this virus to leave so I can give both of them a huge hug again.   I am grateful for the gifts of my life's journey, the great moments and the bad, everyday is great day, we get so few.

      Well I got out the last three days and I need a vacation from myouting lol. Friday we fished am for tulibee and ended up with 19 before switching in the afternoon for crappies. Found a deep hole and the slabs were STACKED UP!!! Hole was 30-36 feet and fish were 18-bottom. Had to drill a ton of holes and stay mobile. Literally you'd have fish in one hole and 5 feet away nothing. Average size was 12 inches with a few 14s.  Saturday tried for tulibee again and I think we got 10 for 7 of us. Switched to the same crappie hole and first 5 fish up the hole were tulibee lol. After a while we found crappies but just couldn't find them. Switched to 4 or 5 other spots then we finally found them. Thought were perch because bottom 5 feet were solid fish. Crappies were averaging 11 inch. Had to stay mobile and drill a lot of holes. kept enough for a supper.  Sunday morning my buddy and I went after big tulibee and got a late start (9 am start). We started by targeting spots people hadn't been lately. Instantly we had 3 on the ice. It was weird they were coming out of the mud. After hour half we quit graphing them so took off for new spots. We ended up with 4 fish biggest two were 4 lbs 4 oz and 3 lbs 12 oz. After that we took off for crappies again. We parked the ranger and guess fish wanted to hide under it. Literally had 10 holes drilled with 10 feet of the ranger and we just kept circling the ranger. We did film a YouTube vide and hopefully the wind wasn't too strong for the audio.    Sadly I doubt I will make it back out again.

      Mine is my wife and our 5 kids (youngest is 29). All are independent and have given us 7 grandkids who are a hoot. Not to mention all of my great friends. I'm only 60 but I've gotten in a massive amount of fishing and hunting since I was 5. Feel sorry for the guys who did nothing but work most of their life thinking they would have their fun at retirement. Doesn't usually work out. I tried to balance work, family and adventure. If I died now I lived a full life but wanna see the kids/grandkids grow up. Their old enough now to have fun with and my days of having to dig a new outhouse hole are over. My son is a huge help now.

      Highlight of my life was seeing AC/DC on their last tour at Excel Center. Rock on!!

      For me it's family, friends and faith.  My health has been good and I'm currently working through some things health wise.  But I'm positive and have found more support and care than I could have imagined.  For that, I truly felt blessed.   I'm lucky to have a wife who loves me even with my short comings.  Again, I'm a very lucky man.  I have 6 granddaughters who love to hug and talk to papa.  Makes me smile even now as I type this.  My 3 adult children are doing well and actually call the old man for advise and like to hang out with me which I really enjoy.  My folks are on their way home from south TX.  We got to visit and fish with them there this winter.  I feel fortunate to be able to do things with them yet.  Finally getting out to fish and hunt with all of these freinds and family are what really make me feel like one fortunate guy.
