Interesting read. Surprised to hear him talk about migrating waterfowl and sunflowers. I didn't realize either ducks or geese would eat sunflowers. Has anyone ever seen this happen?

Late in the year, geese will go into harvested sunflowers bigtime. Think about the birdfood in the store -- its mostly sunflowers. Lots of oil and energy. Be careful driving your truck in there, the stalks are pretty stiff and can take out a radiator pretty easy.

One of the best falls of hunting I had was in a sunflower field. The weather was wet around the end of Sept and we had some very stong winds, lots of plants tipped over making them impossible to harvest. When the farmer disked the field he broke the heads up creating a smogaboard for waterfowl. I hunted this field for well over three weeks and had great luck. This was before I had decoys for the field and it made little difference. Some of the funniest pass shooting I have ever done. Did not have to scout much at all that fall.

We got a good shoot out of a sunflower field.

They were feeding in it the night before...I almost hesitated setting up but thought what the heck.

That was 3 years ago...very late in the year.
