Any scouting reports yet?????

Postby Jerkstring » Mon Oct 14, 2013 6:06 am

Has anyone been out looking to see if the numbers are coming down yet. Heck the dove are just getting down to me. We are seeing a few ducks on the ponds around the deer lease and saw a couple of small groups on Blue river.

Well I haven't seen any numbers yet but from watching the migration reports from DU things seem to be shaping up. I stumbled upon about 10 woodies on one of my ponds just on Monday. There wasn't a single group of woodies on it last year and the year before had close to 100 throughout the season so it was two drastically different years. I think that were already seeing some movement and didn't hardly see anything at this time of year last year so I'm pretty optimistic.

But hey that's just my 2 cents.


Thanks

Not the greatest report here, but was having a cold one by the grill Saturday evening while cooking dinner and saw & heard the first groups of Snow Geese high up in group formations moving south. That seems earlier than the past few years?

Weather has been ridiculously warm, but it'll be cooling down a little bit this week. Still average-slightly above. I will be in northern KS in less than 2 weeks for their opener, should get a taste of what we will see.

later this week we should start seeing some birds. There is a really strong north wind in the dakotas that should start pushing birds down.

I'm envious of this, I've always wanted to see what the hunting is like up that way on the Plains. Curious to see how many birds are there with all that weather up in the Dakotas.

My rail spot had a few 100 teal on it (there were practically zero ducks there the last week of teal season). Also saws a group of 12 Pintails, several spoonie, and a few greys. Local woodies still there also. Saw a fair number of big ducks, but simply didn't pay them much attention as I was in "Rail mode". Hunting buddy, also in Tulsa, said he heard a wad of snows a day or two ago also.

Saw a neck collared Canada at an undisclosed location (park). Couldn't convince my buddy to take a Foiles go at them though :no:

This weather has my juiced for shooting some ducks. Saw about 5-6 teal land on a pond on the way home today in the driving rain. Just got to get the duck ready...have gotten really lazy with her the last two years

In all my years, that was the first neck collar I have ever seen. Go figure it was in the middle of Tulsa. Bastard.

On private property???????????? Depredation, nusiance, "I feared for my life - make my day law"?. Joking, as I don't think you could have legally killed them under any of those circumstances (dern them federal laws). Oh well, most likely just resident banded geese; no grand trophy (if they were sequential bands......

Been hearing some Snows at night for a couple of weeks now. We are getting some needed rain down around Ada. My duck slough was getting really skinny on the water even for the mud motor. Ready to see if the big ducks fill it up like in years gone by. This year I might actually have a blind close to the water.

Sad that on my deathwalk for rail today I came across an empty box from teal decoys left out in the area (actual hunting spot not parking lot)....amongst the other trash they left.

Coots on the lakes. 36 degrees in Ada this morn. Should trigger something this weekend or early next week. We got some needed rain to fill up my duck puddles. Still haven't went down on Texoma to check it out yet. Deer hunting is getting in the way.
