So far we’ve not had the BIG push of birds through North Dakota. Some years by later October an Alberta Clipper cranks up and the snow, wind and freezing temps virtually begin and end the bulk of the best duck and goose hunting. Not the case so far in 2013. I’m still hearing reports of birds in Stonewall, Manitoba and snow geese down to the North Dakota Hwy. 200 corridor . I could type for hours on what may, can or could occur in the next 48-72 hours. But the fact is any reports are old by the time they hit my keyboard. That’s how rapidly things change in late October. The good news is the migration has been more influence by shortening of day’s than extreme weather conditions and should help lengthen the peak migration and hunting opportunities. Across the area some scouting should produce.
