Getting tired of warm temps and no ducks....

Postby PTROOFER FTFOWLER » Wed Dec 21, 2011 9:10 pm

Been hitting a cornfield that is full of tracks, unfortunatly nothing ever shows up until after legal shooting time, of course then this is what happens.....

Literally chasing these ducks from one field to another every day. There are so many they are picking several acres completely clean in one day. Hope I don't run out of corn fields :eek: . Would be nice to start seeing some decent numbers for a change though. Come on migration.

Guy that went with me today brought me two bottles of crown. Gonna need them to keep following these ducks to different ranches, a bottle in hand when introducing yourself to a landowner goes a long way. Last time you drove down Top, we got skunked.

Find yer own damn fields punks!!!

Nice shoot Raymond. Looks like fun.

I had to work in G Falls today & as luck would have it my case at the hospital ended early. I only had enough room in my rig for a layout blind, my new pup & a robo duck. Found a field I have permission on & put out the spinner & sure enough, 7 greenheads later...

They were some fat boys too, DAMN!!!

I don't actually want to hunt.... I just want to act like a bad Karmic
scare crow and make sure you don't get any.

If it helps I can tell you that from where I hunt you can see the moon on a clear night. Of course you could see the ocean from where I hunted last Thursday so maybe the moon thing won't help you that much.
