Noon it is if not a little earlier.

Got a call from a guy in oneal kind of a long haul for a four hour hunt.

The geese arent that thick anymore I think some pushed thru.

But I could of wacked them standing in the field they were so low tonight.

Ducks working the field also and nobody around except one other guy scouting the river.

Well....if I were around I would definitely have taken you up on your offer! I'll be around next year and looking for some hunting partners around Omaha. I grew up out west so not too familiar with the eastern part of the state as far as hunting goes.

Geese did not move until 1 hour before dark to feed and fly back to roost to cold for them but they are still here.
Did not see alot of ducks though they might of pushed out.
Next wave of storms should bring some more in here comes another push.
Tomorrow and tomorrow night.

Hunting down their is fun and awesome compared to here.

They dont have the big honkers but boy do they have some ducks.

I think I saw more ducks then I did in North Dakota this year.

I plan on going back down for spring snows and showing them how to smak them the guys I hunted with down their dont really shoot snows and dont have a real good idea about field hunting them.

I brought more snow decoys with me then they had in their field.

:thumbsup:

The mallards we got down into the timber was awesome.

They circle and circle looking for a good approach spot and when they come boy be ready.

10 feet in front of u.....

Awesome......

Not that expensive of a trip also if you freelance on the public ground.

Schilling Thursday 1/1

Postby HNTEMUP » Fri Jan 02, 2009 2:24 pm

Sure were alot of birds still around Schilling problem is that they are all grouped up and wanted to eat in Iowa instead of Nebraska. Saw thousands of geese and a couple flocks of ducks. Will have to try it again with some inclement weather try and break up some groups. Looks like Arkansas was a blast!

How many decoys did u guys use?

Did you get one of the pits or layouts?

Were the guys in the cornfield blind with the trailer full?

Yeah they like flying across to iowa and feeding I got a place over their that is right in their flight path also.

Let me know when u are going again I will bring my full bodies.

We were the only group there except for a couple pheasant hunters. We had never been there before but got the pit blind in the winter wheat field. There is a corn field blind? Had 10 Big foot full bodies and 30 shells.

Just a little farther north of where u were at.

Their are a couple other blinds out their also but no agriculture in those fields this year due to flooding.

The cornfield blind is right in their flypath back and forth.

They tend to shy away unless they are new birds though.

So I moved to a layout away from the cornfield blind about two hundered yards north of it and you will shoot them good.

They will pass right over u even if they dont decoy well.
