Northwest Minnesota has got a lot of action starting to kick in. With the long warm fall we've been experiencing, the ducks have had little reason to move. That all changed on Saturday, 10/25. The snow rain and wind came in like a hurricane, behind that has been more regular Oct/Nov weather. Potholes above the St Cloud area are frozen, so ducks are beginning to move back onto big water. Bills, Cans, Widgeon and Mallards are starting to drop south as the cold weather continues it's march. Strangely enough, there were many Teal still around northwest of Alexandria last weekend. We limited on Green Wings and Green Heads. I've never seen Teal this late in the year. The Mallards we shot were northern birds with their large size and double curl tails. Hunters in the southern parts of the state should start seeing an increase in movement. Down near the cities it's been a slow fall after the initial locals were shot up. All for now, happy hunting!
