Snow flurries and Roosters

3 posts in this topic

Well, me and the boys (my dogs) made the trek out for some roosters at about 9:15 this morning to hit a beautifull creek bottow with about 10 acres of good thick switch grass around it.

Managed to walk into the wind about 100 yards and first bird got up (hen), then walked another 15 feet and ole ringneck rooty got up and was distpatched. Took the boys about a minute to track him down, and we were back to walking.

Give it another 40 yards and the flurries started and right when we hit the pinch of a corner, 3 hens got up and then we heard the cackle and Mr. Longtail shot up from the grass, beautiful bird with a 25 inch tail and POOF just like that... 150 yards, 30 minutes and me and the boys were done. They looked at me like I was cheating them out of a treat when I turned and whistled to head back to the truck.

Great hunt, short day, now I guess it is off to the honey-do's for the day..... MAN I WANT ICE!!!!

Ditto for me today except it took until 9:40 a.m. and I had a miss of a bird thrown in. The dog was hunting like she was on crack. I thought at 7.5 years old she would slow down a little. Not even close. muc33 you should take that tailfeather to Brenda's that might be a winner! Nice bird.

Ok, this is weird. Dudes, When the flurries hit this morning we TOTALLY SMOKED the ringnecks!!!

It's almost 6 pm and I'm still giddy about the hunting this morning. I had some real good friends from out of town to visit today. I took them out and I should have had a video camera. Between the dogs going absolutely nutso and the roosters everywhere and the guys just bustin guts laughing. Man, what a hunt!!!

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
