Amped up for honker season!

Recommended Posts

I will have to say that this year I seem to be seeing about 20% more resident birds in the greater Rochester area than I have seen in the last 5-6 years. The funny part in looking over my logs from the last 15 years, other than a few outlier years, every year the numbers seem to get better and better earlier in the season. For the last 3 years we limited out on a 3 man limit every first time we were out.... Luck, food, cover.... I'm not sure but I'm definitely looking to continue the trend... 

 

Here is a question for all of you, on the opening weekend, are you still seeing the smaller family groups or are most of your birds starting to bunch up a bit earlier in this September season. My numbers have shown a drop in 1s and 2s, roughly the same in the 5-7 bird groups, and roughly a 50% increase in the 10+ bird groups that seem to be in my area.... Thoughts?

I personally have seen them in bigger groups around my area. 15- 20 a flock.

A lot of the typical 40,60,80 birds feeds this year but I will say I'm happy with the amount of 100+ bird feeds and the 250-300bird feed im watching now aswell! Dont usually see those so early in September

We only hunt the water in September and tend to see smaller flocks returning due to either being shot at in the fields or taking off from the fields at different times.
