So what's everyone's thoughts on how good out bad the middle zone opener will be? We will be hunting just south of the bridge again this year guy we hunt with that lives up there days he's not seeing many birds at all. Going we get some good weather but forecast is calling for beach weather

I saw more birds (wood ducks) this past weekend than I have seen in the previous two years. Im hoping they are all still around on the 3rd.

Spending the weekend up at Rifle River State game area to get a few early days in prior to the southern opener on the 10th. We will be up there 8-11th staying in a cabin. First time up there so hopefully that area will be holding some birds. OP good luck up there. I have a lot of buddies in the Harbor/Petoskey/Mackinaw area that waterfowl hunt, as that's where I grew up. They are pretty bummed with what they've been seeing thus far around those neck of the woods. Still got time for the weather to change though.

If it's anything like early goose I'm super excited. Had consistent flocks of 20-50 landing in the decoys the entire weekend. Also have a nice little flooded timber hole holding a few hundred. Our buddy who leases the land says things are looking good still.
