How did everyone do

Postby sdgr8wthnter » Tue Oct 03, 2006 1:26 pm

How did everyone do this last weekend. Since the whole state was open for ducks and geese. On Saturday we had a 8 man limit of ducks and 6 geese. Should of had more geese but shooting at this point in time was going down hill. On Sunday we had a 4 man limit of ducks and 1 goose.

Well didn't find a spot to go on saturday, but sunday we got 6 ducks and 6 geese with 3 people, should have had one more duck, but somehow it got up and flew away after we shot it :umm:

I hunted alone on some land south of Brookings and shot my five. Sweated my ass off, and did not go out on sunday, too hot, also there was combing to be done.

There was a bunch of combining going on Sunday. So hopefully we can get into some bean fields for the weekend.

We have been combining beans all week. Doing anywhere from 60-80 acres a day. So there will be plenty of fields open south of Flandreau, however there are few decent ponds in our area that hold ducks so the field hunting would be tough.

But from experience the ducks would rather feed in a field than a slough. So I would check all of your bean fields, there should be some ducks in one of them and if not ducks geese.

The ducks and geese have still been feeding in the cut sillage fields, but if the grain runs out in them then for sure they will be hitting the beans hard. There is also not a decent slough or for about 7 or 8 miles in my area, so there are very few ducks. However the geese are usually thick.

:cool: My group of 5 cleaned up opener Saturday. The ducks on public land were smarter by opener Sunday. We decoyed not too far away from the pickups and we suspect that scared most of them off. Partner and I got 5 total that day. No hunting last weekend- had to work at the sporting goods counter and hear about everyone else hunting. :pissed: Planing to head out tomorrow. Friends went out yesterday and this evening (without ME! :pissed: ) and got limits with ducks and moderate sucess with canadians. Good luck to all of you who are heading out! :smile:
