Cut Beans VS. Alfalfa

Recommended Posts

french_lake_kid

I have an alfalfa field I've hunted early goose in all season. It has 2 bean-fields on each side, which are probly now cut. What field should I set up in? There are no bariers, fences,gaps,roads ect. between them. Should I set up on the edge of 2 fields or all in 1 & which 1? Thanx

from my experience I would opt for the beans.Seems like earlier in the yr the alfalfa works but as time goes on and the cooler it gets it seems like the birds want the protein and then as the corn comes out they get into that, kinda like a going right down tha line sorta.Are they using either of the fields? if so go to the one or the other or are ya just hoping? then its a toss up maybe wit some calling you can persuade a flock to take a look and possibly comit,just my$.02

I agree with norwall, go for the beans. I have hunted bean fields well into the season and even late season. With a good decoy spread and some calling, you should have no problem if there are birds in the area.

Beans are definatley worth a shot towards the late season when most of their other food sources become scarce.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
