Did a field scout today for this years fields! Farmers in my area already done the winter wheat and half way on the spring wheat! Looks like we will be on the mud this fall with hopefully some green grazing for the geese, some stubble already being worked under!

Gotta hope for some water now. Hate to see the farmers lose out but wet fields will keep the machinery out leaving lots of cut fields and standing corn, beans, peas, etc. Probably not going to happen, but can be hopeful?

If there is next to no crop (i.e. worked under) will the birds move quickly out even if it is warm/no ice? What is everyones experience?

Thanks!

Hard to say, the ultimate hunts are over flooded crops but wouldn't wish that upon the farmers! I have seen geese take a worked field that has a couple inches of green growth over stuble fields. I enjoy the stuble hunts simply for the fact of ease with blending the layout blinds and with some rain or heavy dew it's still easier accessible with less mud to deal with! The birds will focus on areas with quality and quantity of feed, as for the bird movement working there way south as the season proceeds, it's not as much as a weather issue! My observations have been a time line! It seems like the birds have it in there head to work south even without the cold and freeze up! Haven't had the days of breaking the ice to set up and so on for a few years now! Could just be my area, but seems to be the trend!
Just my 2 cents, maybe couple other members can help out here?
