Been seeing flocks of sandhill cranes passing through all week and lakes and large sloughs are filled with migrating Pelicans this past week or so. This past weekend we've had some cold NW winds and lots of much needed rain and the dugout in the park behind my house which for the first time I can recall had no geese on it all summer is loaded with big honkers today.....one more week to go from this coming Wednesday and it will be time to put the trap guns away and pick up the SX3 and start busting feathers.....:)

Yesterday I noticed a flock of honkers landing in a field. This morning I just glanced at the thermometer, 42 degrees. Fall is pounding on the door.

1.5 - 2 in. of rain in SW Mn this morning, talking another 3 plus by end of week (we shall see), could be a lifesaver for our small potholes that were bone dry, have seen alot of Blue Wing Teal moving thru the area this last couple weeks, it's getting close....

You all keep that cold weather up there with you, I may get hot and sweat a lot but at least I can move.
When cold weather comes in my area my old bones sure don鈥檛 like it.
I am the exact opposite. You can always put more clothes on, but you can't get more naked than naked.

I sure would like to see some signs of fall here in Florida.
Farmers are going full bore here now with the harvest. Canola is being swathed, lentils & peas are combined, haying is almost done, some already have barley combined and the straw bailed and standing crops are already desacated...very early this year.
