    Spring Migration

    Migration definitely in full swing now. Not as many Swans and Snows at the refuge and with the strong south winds I can’t help but think today or tonight will be a big push North. It’s 21c today, south winds at about 48k. If it was me I’d be flying lol.

    Spring Migration

    The birds ( Swans 3,750 and Snows 115,000) seem to have returned to Middle Creek as the numbers as of today are way up again. Was in Maryland over the weekend and there are many birds still there but very concentrated and definitely moving north. Where we were on Chesapeake bay saw few Swans...

    Divers have arrived in Long Point Bay

    Thanks for the report Fireram ..... I frequently check the forum and call the unit to see what divers are in.

I as well as many others I'm sure are saddened by the news. A trip to Port Rowan was never complete without a...

    I am really grateful for the information and of course the tips on hunting and boating alone. I am 52 and like everyone I am concerned about safety.

    Long Point Hunt

    Lots of Ruddy Ducks in Big Rice on Thursday. Not too many flying around out there Friday but between openings in the fog the Ruddies flew pretty good, we got 4 ....we were not shooting our best but had many opportunities. Saw tons of divers on the inner bay Saturday ...not too much flying though.
