Third times the charm

Postby DrakeH2oFowl » Wed Feb 06, 2013 7:21 pm

Been hunting snows the past couple days with not much to show for it. Right areas, lots of birds; just uncooperative with the blue bird days and nonexistent wind. Finally got into a field they liked today and we scratched out 7 birds. Hopefully now we got them a little better patterned for the next couple weeks.

Got into some more today. Missed the X by about a mile and a half but still scratched some for jerky! 16 the past two days has been solid, hoping to get out to the marsh once CO comes in.

A mile and a half- that's all??? Looks like you dialed in on them pretty good! Keep it up.

The birds were on the strangest pattern. Sporadic flights from all directions :huh: Birds coming off water were about that far off to the west. And after thinking about it, I should've known better with wind direction. Sure enough, we found them in the field I thought they were congregating in after packing up. My assumption is the wind direction change yesterday pushed the birds further west, hence why they got up behind us rather than right over us as they'd done the past few days.
