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.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
