swanpig says its cold as

Postby swanpig » Mon Dec 19, 2005 3:43 pm

Most non-moving water is frozen up in the Southwest. Strike has some 100 acre openings in the middle parts packed with birds. I've been hunting a few miles down river the last two days and have shot some ducks. Few mallards, mostly widgeon, gadwall, and "others". We'll give it a shot again tomorrow. Has anyone else been gettin any birds.

I have had a pretty good run on the Boise the last two weekends. Limits of green heads and a Honker here and there.

Northerns seem to be coming to the Panhandle. We had a nice field goose hunt last weekend.

Open water is still around but you need a boat to get to it for the most part.

I was at strike on SUnday and couldn't believe the amount of birds there. All of them were 60-80 yards out at a minimum. The geese were taking off right over the dam. I was thinking about setting my layout blind out and try some pass shooting.

Calli Hunter- Good to hear you found then on the Boise. I was on the Boise near Parma and saw big numbers of ducks all going into the fields. Nothing on the river! The guys in the fileds where bangin them all afternoon. Will this fog improve the hunting along the Boise?

I HAVE HUNTED IN THE FOG AND JUST SLAYED THEM IN THE EARLIER PART OF THE SEASON. THE NUMBERS OF DUCKS HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE. I TOOK A FRIEND OUT LAST WEEK FOR HIS FIRST HUNT AND HE SHOT A LIMIT OF DRAKE MALLARDS. I THINK HE IS HOOKED.

Tues eve on the Bosie was a zero. foggy, no wind and 40 F. Less than a dozen birds seen in the sky, no geese. I saw a ton of birds last week on the Boise near Parma, anyone hunt it recently? Still good numbers?

BILLS BILLS BILLS EYES EYES EYES WIGGIES WIGGIES WIGGIES Everywhere. Saw about 10,000 birds on CJ Strike on about 150 yards of water. Looks to be a good last month.

inthedecoys,

take this for what it worth, you start telling every one on the site that their is alot of bird in an area... every boat in Boise will be thier... they will educate the birds and their will be no more birds.... ESPN did a thing on C.J and then everyone hunted it. P.M. people about it... look at the the view and then the post their are alot of people on the net that use it for scouting reports... use your head....

Doesn't really bother me since I dont hunt there and its all frozen up...Unless people are stupid enough to walk out on the ice and start hunting more power to them. More people hunting keeps the birds moving around and not piling into someplace no one is. U have to work harder and do something different than the next guy.. I see you have had a good year with your bird numbers so good job. :salude: I dont mind going the extra mile to have a good hunt.
