    I have not been able to hunt this past week since the season opened back up. What is the word on the current migration? My dad says that there is a lot of frozen lakes in middle to northern MO and I know with the abundance of cold weather early the ducks are pushing hard. Any insight? Enjoyed the pics and stories of you guys who are hunting right now.

    Yeah, I was at Oklahoma last weekend and there were a bunch flying there. There seem to be a few more in the river valley area now too.

    I called the Cape Gerado MO Conservation Office on the 9th. Here's what the helpful lady told me.

    Much of the northern MO conservation areas are frozen or beginning to freeze over.

    Middle MO zone: 4 Rivers had 146,000 ducks, 2,000 geese, Shello Osage 15,000 ducks, Montrose, few ducks

    South East zone: Duck Creek 25,000 ducks, 1,000 geese, 10 Mile Pond 46,000 ducks, 500 geese

    Hopefully we begin to see them. I think some places in the state have been recieving them this week. Saw a lot in the air this Tuesday in Central AR.:up:
