People like you confirm why i really have second thoughts about posting anything on this or any site. Have a nice day and stop the hate.
This is why we have a topic called DEAD FORUM!!!!! Maybe 4drakes is one of those guys that works in a place you have to have your off days in about 120 days in advance and took the 31,1 off and not the 10 and 11. Hes right, you dont know him so find someting constructive to hate on.
So we gave this last weekend a chance and it was just like we suspected. 5 days for a split is not a split in my mind and it blew. I would say that we did ok tho. 3 bands all banded out of state in canada. We found some heavy feeds but still could not get permission to hunt because of mussel loaders saying they had a crappy deer season and were still tring to kill the big bucks. I think im going to take your advise waterfowler, Im moving out west hahaha, but for real I am moveing there. This state to kill anything without a tone of effort just sucks, we dont have phesants, grouse are getting thinner by the year, even deer hunters are getting moody. You guys win. Im out. This state is so stuck in the past and unwilling to chance anything for any season that it most likly never will. I think alot of guys diver hunt because there success rate is much higher killing divers than puddlers and if I could, so would I. There fast and hard to kill. For me personally though, I would rather be in a place were big game has options, not just deer, elk and bear and good luck getting a tag. I would love a spring snow season and huge flocks of mallards and other species comming into my field in oct. A place were you can hunt 10 months out of the year and the ppeople are friendly which i think MI has forgottten what that words means. I wish you all a great late season for geese and good ice fishing. Merry chrsitmas as well. Later Homee's
