998 to go

Was a rough day in the pits today,. as it has been for the past few days. However we did finely get into the birds today.

Almost all morning as well as the first half of the afternoon, the sky contained birds, and most of them were Snow and Blues. We could turn them, but they were just not interested in getting down into range. However depressing that may have of been, it was still better than not seeing any, or they never, give us a look, as it had been in the past. To be fair with us, the lake still has most it’s surface covered with ice. We have a water hole of only about one and a half to two acres. Most of the ice so rotten now that you can’t walk on it, so maybe tomorrow will wipe most of it out. It is all honey comb, but still about 3 to 4 inches thick.

This is getting real late for a start of action, but I am still sticking with Ralph’s prediction of a 1000 birds. As I stated above, we have just 998 birds to go. With 1.4 Million at squaw creek, and I am sure there are some still in Texas, I don’t think that is asking to much for us to have a mere 1000.

Hoping to hammer out another report tomorrow night so till then, keep the troops in your prayers and please check back

See Ya Carl
