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.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
