How many of Y'all have good results hunting in the afternoon till dark?

I'm out now. Solo which sucks.

Figured with the front coming in tonight might be good.

Only had two geese pass by that were on a mission elsewhere.

I only like evening hunts if its a field. I don't like hunting water in the evenings but I will sometimes. They usually don't come in during legal light.
Nobody cares about your season totals.

During very bad weather I've had success hunting in the evening, without a big wind i would say there's not a great chance for success. even if you don't get a lot of action its still good to get out.

Some of my best hunts have been in the evening. Key is low light situations due to fog, rain or snow. Clear days you might get some shooting in the last 15 minutes of LST. Had a good teal shoot the third week of the season on our lake :thumbsup:

I guess I don't like the whole flow of things. Usually it starts fast and tapers off in the morning, maybe a few late birds and you stick around longer. In the evening it seems to be dead until about 5 minutes until sundown and then you start to get tempted because it keeps getting better.

But I am considering heading out in crappy conditions now that someone mentioned it.

I recall...

I went out tonight; don't get me wrong; I'll go whenever & wherever...

It beats sitting at home. After getting set up tonight I heard two different clucks. After a few clucks back I convinced two geese to come take a look but they had other plans.

To me that was worth the trip out.

I will also say that on my way home tonight with a pissed off dog I really contemplated moving back to TX solely on the hunting :thumbsup:
