I was up around LLB over the weekend visiting my mom. Mostly cattle country around there so lots of oats looking good, and the hay fields yielding lot's of bales. Around Sylvan Lake there seems to be a lot of damaged crops laying down in the fields.

In the south the farmers are well into the harvest. This has to be one of the best falls for them in a long time. It should be awesome by the time the birds show up..

There are always a few spots with birds.  Silage filed are the first to be cut and they get the early geese.  Tons of ducks around right now and there are a pile of pothole shoots if you know what your looking at and can spot decent enough.  I have shot 6 days now with limits of ducks each day and most of that was with 7 hunters.  I have yet to hunt a duck in a field shoot yet this year.  Too easy to get them on the small 20x20 pothole shoots.
