Nice Job,

I opted to stay dry and let the opening day crowds get wet. Grabbed a cup of coffee and watched a few groups of hunters on the local fields compete against each other instead of letting the birds work. I'm with you, Letting the birds "finish" is the best, instead of filling the sky with shot hoping a few might fall. Congrats.

i hear ya! but its nice to find fields off the beaten roads where no one else can see the birds! that's where we are hunting. my buddy hunted a field where he had to be there for 4:40 to make sure he was the first one. and the two of them sat till 2:30 but they got their limit plus a bonus pair of snows! me on the other hand were done by 8:30 before the rain started so I was happy!
