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.

      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.
