the roads were ugly this morning, but i agree, the birds will definitely get a move on and start rolling down in better numbers from here on out. it'd be nice though if the corn could be harvested! the ground is so saturated its insane
I hunted Saturday and Sunday.
Didn't start till about 11:00 AM Saturday and was done by 2:00. Sunday finished in about 35 minutes. Lots of birds and really cooperative ones at that. Good time for sure.
Hunted North Dakots on sunday it was so dumb. Never set up full bodys when wind is 50+ without putting a support in the ground my deeks ran away from me it was a mess. We ended up with 2 drake mallards.
Hunted saturday around XXXX, ND. Limited out with Mallrds, Gaddys, and widgeon by 10 AM. I heard talk of some weather, but it became reality on sunday morning when I opened the door to snow and wind gusts up to 65 mph. 2 of us went out since it was our last day. The birds were moving. I managed to knock down a blue bill, it landed "feet up" dead but got swept away by the winds in the water. The dog could not catch up to it drifting across the water, so the dog was called back for its own safety. After that we went in, no sense in shooting birds that cannot be recovered safely.
