Geese are Really Moving.

    Yesterday, Nov. 11 the geese were on the move. About 2:00 P M it was minus 11 and geese were really moving south. One flock was somewhere between 500 to 1000. Our low for the night was minus 26. We have about 10 to 15 centimeters of snow cover. So bodies of water are freezing over quickly and the food is covered with snow. The Red Deer River is wide open. The Dickson Dam is also a favorite place for geese.

    So soon we will only find a few geese on open spots of the Red Deer River.

    Let me know about the geese you see moving through.
