Howard County

Was looking for geese this morning, and it was awful. I saw some birds...not very many. None of them were making a sound, and all were going exactly where they wanted to go and nothing was going to budge them. We need some cold weather really bad. I'm getting sick of this.

MD newbie here. Do you hunt public or private lands? Curious where you hunt in Howard. I"m just learning the ropes & am thinking of going out this weekend just to look around...

I was hunting on a farm near rt 108.
I'm going again tomorrow to Frederick County...hopefully it will be better out there. Supposed to be cold at least!

Thanks Mike!
I'll be posting a report when I get home! Hoping to see some black ducks too...there are more of them than Mallards out there.

Saw a lot more geese out there than I expected. Maybe this little cold front has moved some birds from North of here. They were all HIGH in the sky and didn't feel like dropping down to look at me. Going again tomorrow in Howard County on a farm that has had birds coming every day, and has'nt been hunted all year. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to it.

WOW
Had quite a hunt this morning. Got to the pond, and there were about 200 geese on it. We waited for legal shooting time, and jumped them up. My buddies got theirs but I only got one. It's tough to pick out one bird from 200...
1/2 hour later one came back for his mate. He died, and fell like a helicopter from 30 yards straight up. Was the best shot of my life. Going back Monday for a repeat. They were all small birds, so I'm hoping this cold air has moved some birds down.

Went back to the same pond again this morning. Was done by 7:30. We saw probably 200 geese flying around. No ducks though...I don't know where they are.
