    2 maybe 3 days max. I really don't see it going much long then today though to be honest.

    This is about when I stopped hunting last year but there were still lots of birds around. I've never hunted when there is ice on the water but I know some that have and it can still be productive. I think we still have a little while longer.

    Game over call it quits everything migrated out last night. Swans are migrating down and they are bullies and push the ducks and geese out

    I'm hoping we still have a couple weeks left before it's all over. Got 7 more trips to the marsh planned in the next couple weeks before i call it quits. I'd like to shoot a few more down for the dog before it's all over, and a birdless day in the marsh is still not a wasted day.

    As long as you can find open water you will find ducks Ive had some great shoots at Jim Creek when almost everything was frozen.

    I think we still have at least a couple of weeks left. Looking forward to one or to more outings!

    I would say at least a couple of weeks we haven't had Ice on any of the ponds as of yet. Went out this morning was foggy did see some birds just seemed they weren't doing a lot of flying. Loads of geese moving around, think im going to make another try at bagging a few of them in the next few days.

    Up on the slope at work.
    Saw 14 ducks on the unfrozen flare pond on Saturday.
    Sunday it had skim ice and they were gone.
    I'm guessing there are still a couple of weeks left weather depending of course.

    At least a few more weeks i'd hope, i'm definitely going out the next two weekends, birds or not. Better than sitting around at home waiting for the snow to fall so I can go snowmachining.

    we have until a good hard freeze, even then sometimes it warms up after and allows a few more days. some of us know some open water spots after the lakes and creeks freeze over that will attract some ducks. sometimes it is froze over this early, other years i have hunted the first of nov (once i think). won't be long, but if anything like last year, the best is yet to come. i havn't even warn my long johns out hunting yet, waiting for the cold mornings when my snot freezes.
