Do you have any openings in marketing or sales at your company? I graduate at the end of this school year, want to live in the Fergus area, and would be willing to join you on these lunch break hunts...

Let me know,

ps- here is a pic of our take (2 man) for opening day here (23 doves)...got 32 the next day for 3 guys. Some great eating! Smear on some chopped garlic, wrap in bacon, and throw 'em on a hot grill! Goes great with Mich. Golden Light.

great shootin. what do you hunt over or around? I have noticed many birds sitting on power lines over corn fields.

we do a little of both, but mostly waiting along power lines or a row of pine trees with dead ones mixed in. If the lines are adjacent to sunflower fields or poor-growth cornfields you are usually money. We walk some of the corn as well and can usually jump some that way but nothing beats a decoying shot--lot higher shooting percentage when they are decoying.

Finding concentrations of birds is the tough part, but once you do you are in for a treat. Usually if I see 5 or more on a powerline I know it is a worthwhile place to hunt because the field will likely be loaded with them.

Good luck.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
