The group I have been going with have shot about 300 out of a sunflower field this year. Probably shot 3000 shells to get them though. Those little things can really get going with any wind.

We have been doing all right but the cold snap definitely pushed a lot of birds out.

They are incredible to eat... grin.gif

09/19/2007 Near Hendrum,MN. Its amazing what a difference and few decoys can make. I sat next to a pond for only an hour this evening and bagged 15. Had a few geese swing by also, but could only watch.

They are fun to hunt and provide sporting targets to boot. The number one migratory gamebird hunted in the nation. Yes they are good to eat also. Not overly large but neither are shrimp.

i keep telling my wife to get the gun when i see doves and she keeps telling me where i can stick my heritage. but i guess when we feed them i dont blame her. also dont have issue with others hunting them either.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
