I'll be out there. Hopefully if the timing of the storm works out it will be great. This is the first time I have been able to work out some time off with an impending storm on the horizon.

By the looks of this weekend's weather RR you will be getting your wish. Up here at least it is forcast to be hovering around 0 Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. That will freeze shiz up quick. Cache Valley folks better get out in the storm Friday if they want to hunt over water.

Joel, heard it was raining outside right now and it'll probably turn into snow later tonight... that should put a nice slick cover on things if this storm blows in, blows out and leaves us with starry nights.... that should lock it all up pretty tight. 8) Thought it was cold enough already but down here in the valley, I guess not cold enough to push birds to where I thought they'd be. :?

I'll be out tomorrow morning. I'm thinking Farmington. Anyone seeing any swans at FB? I would appreciate a PM if you've got any good info about where they might be. Good luck you all tomorrow. I hope this is a real storm and not just the weather man's fantasy. 8)

you and every other tom, dick and harry will be sitting on the 1A dike i guess. just to give you a heads up i havent seen that many swans flying at the BRBR this year compared to last. i've only seen two get shot. i have hunted the BRBR alot this year and it is slow for swans....ohh and the refuge officer (greg mullin) said they will be out patroling the dike real hard this weekend. 10 shell limit on the dikes of 1A and 2C, i told him to check the shell limit on those guys, all they do is sit and shoot at everything flying over, even if its 100+yards. if it were me i would go with 2C but thats just me!

good luck and have fun fighting for your 20 yards of dike space! if your not hunting the dike...sorry for the classification. the center unit 2 is your best bet for a swan to decoy....

What a day!!! If you weren't out today, you missed a good shoot! I only shot at 1 swan (missed), but I towed back a limit of ducks. Shot way too many shells (couldn't hit my own butt with both hands today :roll: ). Took me 11 shots to connect on the first bird. I finally got myself straightened out. Last three ducks were consecutive shots (good thing, I only had two shells left). Ended up with 1 greenhead, 1 drake widgeon, 4 drake GWT, and one hen. I guess the swan gets a pardon till I draw another tag.

It was a great day to be out. We managed 12 birds 1 pinny 2 mallards and 9 bald plates. Also like wolleybugger not to hot of shooting. Forgot how fast those birds can move with a 30 mile an hour tail wind.
