2017 WATERFOWL SEASON

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Good shoot! I got permission on the field I was hoping for. Gonna be a tough hide /setup as the birds are strung out along a several hundred yard flooded ditch in a short stubble field (with a little snow and I don't have snow covers for the layouts) and not really concentrated in one area of it. Gonna give it a shot though!

We put them down !! It was a real slow morning just 2 solos. Then at 11 it was like someone hit a light switch , they didn't stop flock after flock . Tip of the day , we didn't call 1 time the birds didn't want to hear a thing. IMG_20180310_063020.jpgIMG_20180310_083512.jpgIMG_20180310_095634.jpgIMG_20180310_120259.jpg

Hit the field early on Saturday morning, my work schedule only allows me afternoons and evening for scouting so I wasn’t sure when the birds were getting to the field.Turns out a bunch were roosting on the river adjacent to the field, they left roost when the sun was above the hill and we got a two pack that landed in the decoys.

 

Then a long wait till 11:00 and 3 dozen came back together and landed outside of the spread. Tried waiting them out hoping they’d walk into the spread but that didn’t happen.We both had to p*ss and every bird that came by was landing with the live birds so We flushed them out

Then in the afternoon we finally had birds coming in again, all in pairs which was perfect for 2 shooters. I cleaned up 3 more and missed one, was shooting 100% on one shot till that miss! My buddy only ended up with one more, his gun malfuncted on 2 feet down birds that would have been dead, and also missed one out of the pair I missed. So, we at least shot at a limit, all in all a great day and good success for it being my first year targeting geese!

Found a roost spot with a couple thousand snows on it , I cant hunt the pond but I can hunt the field next to it. Would have shot alot if I could water swat them. They all got up at once and flew over. I went 6 for 6 and my buddy crippled 1 lol . IMG_20180327_092717.jpgIMG_20180327_063642.jpg
