I'm Working on sunset cliffs and have watched quite a few flights going south over the last couple days. Also saw a flight of sprig landing in the mouth of th SD river this evening.
Good signs for this coming weekend.

The Mecca area has been slow for us since the opener.About a 3 bird avg but have had a few chances at the geese.I know one member has killed 4 with one being lost to a bordering club.Caretaker told me some new birds have moved in the week.Idaho has been below freezing this week which should push birds down.Tom

Just heard from our club manager. Lots of snows showing up and the pins are coming in as well.

We're gonna give it a go tomorrow.

Had a pretty good hunt at SJ on Wednesday. Based on the differences in the amount of fat on them when cleaning 'em, I'd definitely say there are new birds in the area.

Good luck to you guys hunting this weekend.

Dam dismal. Was going to set up this afternoon but decided just look around. No puddlers around. Time to go on the big water tomorrow after the morning shoot.

We just got slammed with some nice snow these last few days, prior to that there was minimal bird movement for this time of year. Now its jumping!! Lots of birds on the move... my guess is that you will be seeing a bump in activity down your way sooner rather than later

SJ had a lot of new birds this morning. We sweat lined it and got on #11. We were in the less desirable area but I scratched out a few birds. Looked like A LOT of Wigeon have shown up. Our groups mix was comprised of a mallard, spoon tangs, and GWT. I knocked down a Pintail and Wigeon, but they flew directly to the adjacent blind and were folded promptly...guess I should shoot better; but, it was nice to work them into the decoys for once.

Last week on the full moon my buddy and I had limits of straight widgeon in less than 30 minutes. Big flights decoying well. Being on the X helped...

    I'll start reporting in December when I start going (kids soccer and deer in the way). No one's been at the club on a regular basis. Ali said it was a 2 bird average with spoon/sprig last Saturday.
