Sunday Morning Hunt

3 posts in this topic

Since yesterday was a complete bust with the wind, rain, and tornados, we decided to drive around and scout for a field this morning. We ended up finding a good number of birds in this field! It didn't come easy though. When it got light to where we could see and the first two flocks flared, we realized we were in the wrong spot and needed to make adjustments. So we had to quickly move our spread (5 doz) up about 50 yards while birds were flying. Talk about "Out of breath"!

Anyways, things turned out well for us shooting a 4 man limit of 20...

Great shoot, congrats. It's always fun making those adjustments while the birds are flying grin.gif Sounds like it worked out well for you though.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
