Sandhills Weekend Hunt

Postby DEMolishedyou2 » Fri Oct 22, 2010 12:07 pm

Headed to the Sandhills for a few days of hunting. It was my two brothers, my dad, and I hunting most of the time, with 2 other fellows on Saturday morning. Total of 17 ducks, 12 geese, & 2 Grouse. Pretty decent hunting considering the warm temperatures and lack of migration so far.

Saturday:
Hunted a private farm pond in the AM with limited success.
-1 Mallard, 1 Greenwing Teal, & 1 Grouse
Hunted a private marsh midday before the game, saw lots of birds, were difficult to decoy.
-1 Greenwing Teal, 2 Gadwalls & 1 Mallard
Hunted the pond in the evening after 3rd quarter.
-1 Wigeon

Sunday:
Set up in 1 of the few picked corn fields in the AM.
-4 man limit of geese in 45 minutes.
Hunted the pond in the evening, saw lots of new birds, but none were interested in water.

Monday:
Set up in the corn field hoping for more geese in the AM, but none were seen, but the Mallards took over the field.
-3 Mallards
Hunted the marsh midday. Passed up on a lot of shots, hoping for bigger ducks.
-3 Gadwalls & 2 Wigeons
Went back to the field in the evening.
-2 Mallards and 1 Grouse
