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.
