Chris (Hustad), your article about Hunting Tactics in ND brings up some questions. While scouting last year (late Oct) I found what I thought was going to be an excellent spot the next morning. I stood half a mile away from the hole and watched a couple of thousand ducks and geese pour into a body of water that probably encompassed a square quarter of a mile, maybe a little less. I found it interesting the way the geese and ducks segregated themselves. After reading your article and not experiencing any real sucess in the hole the next morning (after I ran the birds off and they never really returned the entire day), I think I buy into the idea that this was probably a roost. In all my scouting last year I found a few holes like this but never really saw a lot of movement from the roosts. What time should you expect roosting birds to start moving so you can get a feel for where their transition sloughs and feeding fields might be? I don't have a good feel for how best to distinguish a roost from a transition slough when scouting. Help from anybody is appreciated. Thanks. :-?
