Me, I should have went fishing. Was afraid of this, just haven't seen much the last week or so. They're around just not doing much. Saw 1 flock of 8 that went into a 100 acre field down the road where they were in the process of picking corn. Fair amount of Mallards, Woodies and Teal buzzing around. To bad Crow closed yesterday, could of nailed a basket full. Oh well, time to get focused for the next couple of months.

I went out this evening to hunt state land.....someone needs to tell the $*#&^$ bowhunters that just because it's bow season, doesn't mean they own the damn land! :pissed: Went to hunt a PUBLIC lake, but couldn't do it....some bow hunters parked their camper in the godddam pullout! Went and found a clover field right next to the refuge.....went to hide in the weeds and heard someone say "Gee, thanks alot!".....turned out a bowhunter was in a tree....50 yards from the road! :pissed: Told him I wasn't looking up for bowhunters, and that it was opening day of goose as well as bow. Moved down a bit, but I've just about had it with these @****** who put out a bag of carrots or apples and think the entire section of land belongs to them. :pissed: :pissed: :pissed:

Did see a fair amount of birds; unfortunately, they were all high and none came overhead until after legal shooting time (when I was on the road back to my car, while the bowhunter was still in his tree hunting (illegaly! :pissed: )

Sounds like the same reasons I don't hunt state land anymore for anything until January :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: . Way to many arrogant, narcissistic types hanging in the trees. Personally think bowhunters should have to wear some orange on state lands, regardless. It doesn't seem to hurt anything during gun season, and it would be safer for everyone. It'll never happen, to much $$$ involved in bowhunting for the DNR to get anywhere near it. :thumbsdown: :pissed: .

Decided to try and sleep in past 5:30 for the first ime in a long time, no alarm and made it to 6:15. Oh well, have 95% of the stuff that needs to get done before duck season done so I'm in decent shape there. Then I watched the Lions game...... :help: ...... :thumbsdown: :pissed: Joey :thumbsdown: :pissed: Offensive play calling :thumbsdown: :pissed: At least the Red Wings start this week :thumbsup: :salude:

Next time, a guy parks in the boat launch, push his truck in. Or at least borrow his lug nuts. A jar of vasoline smeared on the windsheild is very hard to get off, mite remind him to park in the right spot.
