I went out for a quick hunt on some bigger water near Fergus today.

Some larger flocks of mallards, and ringers too.

Nothing much wanted to decoy with the exception of hoodies and a surprising number of cans.

Hunted way out west yesterday afternoon 'til sunset. Thought it would be a slam dunk.

Saw very few birds, and most of those were EXTREMELY decoy shy. We need some new birds.

Walter,

North of Fergus is a little out of my stomping grounds.

From what I saw this morning, I think I might switch to field hunt geese for a while

I went deer/pheasant hunting over the weekend, drove through Appleton and didn't see anywhere near the number of hunters we usually do. The campground is usually packed, but on Friday it was empty, and Sunday there were maybe 6 rigs in the lot.

On all the lakes and swamps and pretty much everything we checked out west, there were very few ducks to be seen. A handful of flocks of geese were migrating south, but nothing really impressive.

Went out friday and saturday, no ducks around! Saw about 2,000 mallards using a cornfield, talked to the farmer who owned the land but we couldent get permission. He was a real nice guy but I guess someone else already had permission. Besides that we dident see much, we got 3 hooded mergansers, 3 gwt, and a pintail friday. Hunted a cut bean field saturday and shot 3 geese. Only decoyed 1 flock of four, and dropped three but all three were banded. That saved the trip! The birds lit in the pocket about 15 yards away, I doubled and my buddy got 1. He was dissapointed that he missed the other considering the three we shot all had bands, I bet the one that got away was also banded. Lots of geese around, saw plenty of EPP's and cacklers along with the usual giants, even saw a couple small flocks of snows but no ducks to speak of.

Saturday morning ended up with one gadwall and saw a few flocks. On Sunday morning I ended up with 5 ducks and 1 hooded merganser. Sunday was the best hunting I've had this year. There were still the same amount of ducks that I've seen all year, I was just set up in the right place. Other than those ducks I didn't really see a whole lot. We defintely need some birds to get pushed down.

Went out this morning in north metro. Got two reheads and saw a few buffies, and a flock of divers alomst came to us. Saw some mallards, but nothign much, and surprised by the lack of geese. My brother and Grandson did miss a nice fat sawbill smile So I got to raz them a bit.

Surprised at the lack of ducks, and I was not expecting it to be great, but really few of them.

Pretty dead in central OT county, but I heard reports of some good numbers of divers that trickled in over the weekend..

Saturday yielded a few flocks of mergansers that decoyed so nice(didn't shoot..) and 2 redheads that came in without hesitation. I took the drake, let the hen swim. Saw a few other flocks flying..

Just in time for deer opener this coming weekend, the weather looks like it's going to change a wee bit. Canada will be getting much colder, and looks like we may get some cold (and snow storm?) next week... bring some birds south!

Went on Thief Lake Saturday morning, not many birds but sounded like alot shooting to the NE of us. All other hunts on fields. Pictures in the 2008 waterfowl photo thread.

      I would love to join can I get the information. Can you please call me at 9526877929
    • whateverisbiting
      I will be going to my cabin a couple hours drive.  I will bring all my food and gas with me and not go to any stores there.  If I still have to work from home I may work there self quarantine for 14 days.  Then you become a local.  Then you have to do the same thing coming back home if going out to stores there.  Small towns have few hospitals and very limited equipment.  That is a real concern.  But hopefully will not blow up with very low population density.  Can't wait to put the dock in, have a G&T, and put out the lighted bobber!

      Thankful for my faith in God, my great wife, I have 3 nieces and a nephew do not see them too much. Be thankful for family all of you. I don't have hardly any family left but really enjoy those nieces and nephew when I see them. Thankful for the guys and gals on this site. I have learned lip reading even more and that is a huge help for me right now. I'm also thankful for my  Yamaha boat motor best thing I ever bought😀 Thankful my wife loves to fish and comes with anytime she can. She is laid off now but boy do I love being with her. I work second shift Mon-Thursday she works during the week and every weekend it feels like a second honey moon!

      I am grateful to have my faith in God, without my faith life's trials would be much more difficult to navigate.   I am grateful for my family, they are source of a great deal of strength.  There is nothing like raising my 2 favorite people on earth everyday.  I screw up alot, they have always given me a reason to keep going forward.  My wife is the most amazing woman in my life.  She has to be great, to deal with me everyday. Grateful for my father and my sister, we have always had a close family, but going through my mother's battle and ultimate death from cancer this last year, I know it would have been next to impossible to deal with without them.  I can't wait for this virus to leave so I can give both of them a huge hug again.   I am grateful for the gifts of my life's journey, the great moments and the bad, everyday is great day, we get so few.

      Well I got out the last three days and I need a vacation from myouting lol. Friday we fished am for tulibee and ended up with 19 before switching in the afternoon for crappies. Found a deep hole and the slabs were STACKED UP!!! Hole was 30-36 feet and fish were 18-bottom. Had to drill a ton of holes and stay mobile. Literally you'd have fish in one hole and 5 feet away nothing. Average size was 12 inches with a few 14s.  Saturday tried for tulibee again and I think we got 10 for 7 of us. Switched to the same crappie hole and first 5 fish up the hole were tulibee lol. After a while we found crappies but just couldn't find them. Switched to 4 or 5 other spots then we finally found them. Thought were perch because bottom 5 feet were solid fish. Crappies were averaging 11 inch. Had to stay mobile and drill a lot of holes. kept enough for a supper.  Sunday morning my buddy and I went after big tulibee and got a late start (9 am start). We started by targeting spots people hadn't been lately. Instantly we had 3 on the ice. It was weird they were coming out of the mud. After hour half we quit graphing them so took off for new spots. We ended up with 4 fish biggest two were 4 lbs 4 oz and 3 lbs 12 oz. After that we took off for crappies again. We parked the ranger and guess fish wanted to hide under it. Literally had 10 holes drilled with 10 feet of the ranger and we just kept circling the ranger. We did film a YouTube vide and hopefully the wind wasn't too strong for the audio.    Sadly I doubt I will make it back out again.

      Mine is my wife and our 5 kids (youngest is 29). All are independent and have given us 7 grandkids who are a hoot. Not to mention all of my great friends. I'm only 60 but I've gotten in a massive amount of fishing and hunting since I was 5. Feel sorry for the guys who did nothing but work most of their life thinking they would have their fun at retirement. Doesn't usually work out. I tried to balance work, family and adventure. If I died now I lived a full life but wanna see the kids/grandkids grow up. Their old enough now to have fun with and my days of having to dig a new outhouse hole are over. My son is a huge help now.

      Highlight of my life was seeing AC/DC on their last tour at Excel Center. Rock on!!

      For me it's family, friends and faith.  My health has been good and I'm currently working through some things health wise.  But I'm positive and have found more support and care than I could have imagined.  For that, I truly felt blessed.   I'm lucky to have a wife who loves me even with my short comings.  Again, I'm a very lucky man.  I have 6 granddaughters who love to hug and talk to papa.  Makes me smile even now as I type this.  My 3 adult children are doing well and actually call the old man for advise and like to hang out with me which I really enjoy.  My folks are on their way home from south TX.  We got to visit and fish with them there this winter.  I feel fortunate to be able to do things with them yet.  Finally getting out to fish and hunt with all of these freinds and family are what really make me feel like one fortunate guy.
