    Too nice here in Delaware & Maryland..."Blue Bird Days", no real wind, no low pressure fronts, etc, etc.

    The season for the migratory birds starts on Saturday (11/19) and the long range forecast doesn't indicate any major fronts moving this way?

    Almost 70 today (Sunday) in New Jersey. I canceled my Quail hunt for today. The dogs have still not recovered from yesterday's heat. Also too dry for good scenting conditions.

    I agree with the BLUE BIRD WEATHER here in Va. Its to warm and pretty. Its also a good time for the Game wardens to show himself with such nice weather for thoise who do go out.

    Yesterday's conditions in SE Idaho were about as goose2 described them, and the duck hunting was fair - six birds in about three hours. Today was partly cloudy, windy, and cold. I only saw two ducks flying in about three hours, and didn't get a shot.

    Incredible weather in the east. I know ducks were almost non-existant in New Brunswick this year.

    Low 40's wind of equal speed and snow showers in central Montana. Looks like a big front moving in from Canada today. Good hunts on snowies over the weekend.

    Yea.. The weather is great. When we get some of these ducks that are at all time high numbers it will be much better. Duck numbers are starting to be a case of the emporer's new clothes. More pintails then we had in the 70's but the limit is srtill 3 when the limit was 7 in the 80's. If we can not stock pile ducks why is the limit still 3 and why am I seeing very few Pintails?Jeff
