The Northern birds are descending upon us in legions. PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN and FEED your family! Reports from all over Western MT say the big breasted, green headed, orange legged birds are here in record numbers. The cold weather has pushed the birds down and concentrated them on any open water. It’s time to head to your favorite honey hole south to the Bitterroot, north to the Flathead and East and West on the Clark Fork…Grab your shotguns and at least a box of shells! Christmas has come early and who knows how long the weather will last and how long birds will be here. I’ve got a serious case of duck fever and for the short term must live vicariously through my friends. Yes, this is an All Points Bulletin…get out early and get out often. As always..be careful…it’s a cold world out there.
