Just saw a few thousand birds fly over Argusville (Just North of Fargo). Id say they are working their way up.

I saw large bunches this morning about 3 miles west of West Fargo.Lots of water yet from the flooding and there were snows in the air all over between West Fargo and Mapleton.But pretty tough to get at them since most off pavement roads are pretty soft yet.

I just got back from the Bismarck area today and there are birds all over in the stubble fields along I-94 in that area. I doubt you could throw a rock and not hit one. Bring your mud boots with!

Today I drove 100 miles down the red river valley, and most birds I saw were really high. Its not like they have any water to rest their flight on.

I know there are a lot in the area, but I haven't specifically scouted them. If the flood water isn't too bad I may try get out on Tuesday.

I'll be in minot the weekend of the 24th. I'm tempted to bring the 12 and 10 gauge just in case....

Here's to hoping!

Well we were over by Devil's Lake for a couple days. Tons of birds around, but there is so much water it's unreal. Most of the geese we saw never got up, they could be in a "lake" and swim over to eat some corn without ever flying anywhere. There was no predicting what they'd do. Nice to be out though, except the mud made everything a chore.

Anything closer to the rugby area at all.....or do they stop about 10 miles all around Devils Lake like normal? I'm headed down highway 2 from Mn to Minot and would love to see 'em in a huntable area. Is the DL region posted up pretty tight?

Was out hunting by fesseden over the weekend and we ended up getting 25 birds. There wern't many birds still around. We tracked down two semi-decent flocks and hunted them each day. Alot of watet in the fields made it for some tough hunting

Brian, I was out within 1-2 hours west of fargo, early last week, and this last sunday.

We were scouting for snows, and they're all gone.

We were hoping to find some stragglers, but couldn't find anything. I don't know if there is just too much water, but in 7 hours of scouting the only white birds we saw were about 500+ swans.

It was nice to see thousands of ducks, and honkers. I'm going to have to start fishing to take my mind off waterfowling...

If people are heading to ND, I would go as far north as possible.

Just got back snow goose hunting!! Its pretty much over. Put on 900 miles this weekend. Found very few bird. Most birds we saw were along the ND-Canadian border north of Devils Lake!! And there was only a few thousand there, and most were juvies. There was a few birds scattered from Lakota to Devils Lake to Cando area.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
