Cut Beans VS. Alfalfa

6 posts in this topic

I have an alfalfa field I've hunted early goose in all season. It has 2 bean-fields on each side, which are probly now cut. What field should I set up in? There are no bariers, fences,gaps,roads ect. between them. Should I set up on the edge of 2 fields or all in 1 & which 1? Thanx

from my experience I would opt for the beans.Seems like earlier in the yr the alfalfa works but as time goes on and the cooler it gets it seems like the birds want the protein and then as the corn comes out they get into that, kinda like a going right down tha line sorta.Are they using either of the fields? if so go to the one or the other or are ya just hoping? then its a toss up maybe wit some calling you can persuade a flock to take a look and possibly comit,just my$.02

I agree with norwall, go for the beans. I have hunted bean fields well into the season and even late season. With a good decoy spread and some calling, you should have no problem if there are birds in the area.

Beans are definatley worth a shot towards the late season when most of their other food sources become scarce.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
