I don't know exactly what part of Western Neb. your in but from my knowledge most of the snow or at least the majority of them are farther east of you. I have seen some in Ogallala when i head up there in Dec. but I have a friend in Lincon and he hunts them quite a bit later on and especially in the spring. So I would say that they are farther east of you.

Hey, I live Just North of Chery County Nebraska and Have been starting to see more and more Snows passing through in the last two years, Still Not the Massive Flocks that come down the central flyway But I have seen flocks numbering in the 50-100 geese range.

Yea if your in Scotts Bluff I'd say that you're too far west for them. I'm sure you might see a few but I know that the majority of them is father east of you. A good friend of mine used to live in Scotts Bluff and when we'd hunt up there we'd hardly see any snows, but that was 3 or 4 years ago.

I hunt just west of Lincoln. I have not seen any snows this season yet but did see a lot last year during the spring conservation season. They come through by the thousands in the spring especially a little further west of here, around the Rain Water Basin. Depending on how much water we have sitting here, they may stay a few weeks or just push right on through. They are in my opinion a lot harder to hunt than Canadas and ducks, it takes hundreds if no thousands of decoys to get them to decoy.
