Are they cutting their corn yet???

Postby 870 » Thu Aug 31, 2006 5:56 pm

I don’t know about you boys, but if these farmers don’t start cutting their corn I’m going to scream. :toofunny:

How about in your part of the world, are they cutting their corn yet?

It’s hard to pattern the geese their hitting the grass fields, but not steady :pissed:

It looks like I’m going to have to hunt them over the water. They come back to it around 10:30, then just before dark. Well plan “B” is going to have to work. :thumbsup:

Your not going to see the farmers cut their corn anymore till Mid Sept-Oct. 1st. This is because most farmers have corn processors on there choppers and they need the corn to dry down some so they can get more grain out of the ears. This allows the farmer to save alot on their grain bills. Plus this year has been really wet and most farmers are a month behind on the hay.

870 - for a guy who doesn't hunt early season geese you sure are getting into it!!

There has been some corn chopping down around Otsego County. My dad has been scouting it out and saw ~150 in a field we are going to in the morning.

It is the last weekend of early season so shoot strait and hit 'em hard fellas!!! :hammering: :hammering:

Your right Harvey and as I told you the other day when you came up to hunt “IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT” that’s what I told my wife also. You don’t think I’m mature enough fess up and take the responsibility for it. I thought if she’s going to be mad at some one well….better you than me :toofunny:

Truthfully I’m glad I listen to you and others on how much fun the early season is, it’s been a blast. The other day hunting with you a DHC brother and over your dog Lily that was a real treat, thanks again for coming up next time grab CLUTCHfan on your way up. :thumbsup:

I'll just weigh in here briefly, and say that they aren't cutting much corn yet in Onondaga County, though they are cranking through hay, so it won't be long.

Also, I had the awesome experience to hunt with moderator Matt, and his English Lab Bitch, Lilly, tonight. Matt capably closed two separate pairs of geese with his fancy new call, but they didn't get close enough to allow us to, as Mat put it, "shoot them in the face."

Overall, it was a great hunt. Unfortunately, we heard alot of late, and I mean twenty minutes plus late, shooting. Not good.

HEY!! Watch it! :oops:

Who has bumpers on the inside of their boat not tied to the cleat anyway?

870, thanks again for a great hunt. That was a lot of fun. Are you going to post up any of the pics? How about the one with the dogs and the birds?

And Klotzer, good hunt tonight buddy. We'll get 'em when all the corn is chopped and the pot holes freeze up. :thumbsup:

Ugly business!!

Rained like the dickens all weekend. Between beers and honey do chores, I slunk out to a local AKC Hunt Test that I entered too late to run, and watched a bunch of other dogs seek glory.

A super nice guy from Orchard Park, NY got his decommissioned ambulance (and it was modified into one sweet hunt test/hunting rig) stuck real bad. My 2006 3/4 ton Dodge Ram, the one with the Cummins Diesel, could not unstick him, even with my 25 foot, 18,0000 pound tow strap. Astonishingly, the dang Marshall told StuckGuy to drive where he did. THERE ARE CATTAILS WITHIN TEN FEET OF HIS STUCK RIG!!

In trying to pull him out, I had plenty of power, and 4WD LOW, but no traction: it was all gumbo mud. I nearly got my own rig stuck, then had to leave, and gave him the tow strap. With any luck, he is out and Irie by now. (He had a very nice dog, too...)

Matt called me and left one of those "waterfowl porn" messages: "how many of these goose wings do you want for your pup, Klotzer"?
