Northern birds thick last weekend

2 posts in this topic

My North Dakota trip got canceled because my dad was out there and that big storm pushed all the birds out in the area he was in. Did hear there was some birds in the devils lake area but didn't have the bucks to head out there. It turned out to be fine because there were tons of ducks on a spot near Big Sandy. Thursday morning saw a flock of over ten thousand get up after someone shot on a close marsh and head south. Saw multiple flocks of 1000-3000 throughout the weekend migrating. Enough stuck around to get our possesion limit in two days. Called my grandpa and dad out to do some guiding for them. Ended up with 34 birds and one grouse that wondered into the wrong yard. A few huge greater scaup which is rare for that area. It made it tough identifying between necks and bills. Had to let flocks come through in range once to identify them and hope they come back through. Could've had more birds but my grandpa is eighty and he can only hunt limited spots. Just good to get out and enjoy the marsh with him. Hopefully there are more birds/open water around this weekend gonna get out sunday. If not it is on to chase pheasants and maybe a late goose shoot if it makes sense.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage.
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
