Crops in the morris area?

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering how the crops are doing in the morris area. How much they have in and how much humidity they are running at. I am going pheasant hunting around the area next weekend.

Thanks,

Kyle

Went hunting around morris last weekend. Most if not all beans are out. Some corn is out but still a lot in the fields. If it will stay fairly dry this week they should be able to pull a lot more out. There are good numbers out their but a lot of them are in the corn. With that said we still got 10 birds for 6 hunters on Saturday. Nobody could hunt sunday but I would guess we would have done nearly as well since the wind died down quite a bit. As we walked we could see a lot of birds flying and running into the corn. Once the corn gets out I think it will be real good hunting.

I second this observation. Last week, the wind blew hard and cold. Birds were hunkered down in the thick crap and in the corn. Corn is being taken out so hunting will get better, as it always does at this time. Our luck there was about the same as the previous post. My Britt is still a little sluggish/tired last night and mad at my shooting skills

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
