It was very high, we just hunted coves that were wadeable, and flooded areas. Only lost three birds (which is a terrible feeling) but got the rest. Gotta be picky when it's so high. I love the late split.

Maybe I have dumb birds but they will be there clear through until the spring thaw. They have been roosting in the same spot since early November and I have been hunting there every day except for a few days and they don't leave that spot. These birds are mostly locals and know where to fly so it gets to be a game everytime I hunt them. every time the wind changes direction you have to change hunting spots.

You don't go in and bust the roost but hunt away from the roost and let the birds come to you. These birds hardly ever get any pressure so a little shooting and get out and they will come back every day. No all day hunts just 3 hours or so and that's it.

Went to check out the ice conditions this morning and the birds were still there. I'll let them rest until Wednesday than have another go at them.
