Bogota Update.

Postby dirtysouthassassin » Sat Nov 01, 2008 8:23 pm

We to set up the new floating blind, get the pit ready, and clean up around the cabin today and we were very dissapointed in what we saw. Almost all the corn was blown over around the pit and we had way to much cuckabara. But we compromised and cut about 10 trailer loads of corn an make fake rows around the pit. The last big wind hit us hard, knocked our satelite antenna off the cabin. But there were some upsides. The new floating blind we built looked great! we should down right murder out of it. I think the pit will kill pretty good though. Just wish we could have had better corn. Checked a few other holes out also, steve's corn actually looked worse than ours, but his is not so much a feeding hole like ours. Got a couple new guys in the area also. Well just updating a little, let yall know how many limits we get opening weekend!!!HAHA just kidding!

Our cabin is on barbwire rd. right next to the all that equipemnt and silos. Our pit is the third road on the right going down barbwire road. It is the bigger field. It is the one planted in corn, we also have a new flotaing blind we are gonna try out. We are right across the ditch from Steve Barnette. He actually had a blind on our place before we bought it from him.

I dont think the corn being blown over will hurt much. It will make it easier for the ducks to reach. Hope the wife will let ya get off for a some days to hunt the lake.

Well let's hope so. We were gonna ride up to sandburg and check out the lake. I dont think it is far at all from the cabin, maybe like 15 min. We could stay there if you want. And no, the girlfriend doesn't have any say so on what I do(Most of the time).

Well our cabin is about 40 yards from one of his fields, it is right behind us. You can hear ducks splashing from the cabin. Our pit is around 3-400 yards from him. I feel like we will do pretty good this year. We killed over 800 last year but we didn't hunt everyday, I would say we hunted 45 of the 60 days. And we hardly ever have a full blind. We usually stay neck and neck with steve depending on the weather. I heard he killed around 1700 last year, but thats hunting everyday with 10-20 people a day from what I hear. Sounds like you are pretty familiar with the area? You hunt near us?

Very bad! My dad went, there were 9 hunters. Killed 20 on Friday, 4 Saturday, 3 Sunday, and last update on today(Monday) was 1. So not to good at all! They said all the ducks were flying high today and not showing much interest at all. Friday after shooting time there was 5,000-6,000 ducks trying to get in our hole. Maybe it will change by tomorrow morning.

Yea, Im hoping it will pick up. We knocked down 11 and picked up 8 this morning in Savannah. We actually have a little water. I'm hoping the river will get out in the bottoms here in Savannah.

Killed 12 at our blind today on the lake. It was extremely slow. The river is supposed to rise but not enough to help or hurt. Maybe the rain will fill up the refuges with water. Yall been hunting during the week down there any?

In Bogota? They have been hunting a little in the week. Just not killing anything. In Savannah we have a little, actually doing a little better than Bogota but only killing between 4 and 10. Looks like we may get a little water. I was in the bottoms today and water was already getting out of the big creek and had about 300 acres flooded and there was a lot of current in it. If it gets up a little more you need to come down and I'll show you how to hunt backwater. I haven't made it to Bogota yet, if you are wondering why I have yet to call you to go. Is Obion not getting high? I can bring a boat and we will find some flooded fields.

Im heading up Sunday and gonna try to hunt that evening and as long as we are killing ducks the rest of the week. We are gonna bring the boat so we might end up on the obion monday morning since it is gonna be iced over everywhere. Four killed a limit of something out of our blind today. I think it might have been all greenheads. But Im not sure.

Things started heating up Sunday the 21st. We killed 34 Sunday but fell short of a limit. Today (Monday), we killed 42, which was a limit and we were at the cabin by 2:30. Tomorrow will be good but no one will be able to hunt our pit I don't think. Steve Barnett shot a lot today and yesterday.

Yea he does shoot quite a bit. But he normaly has a blind full. We usually do about the same as him, unless it is a south wind he does a little better. We came out earlier than he did, but I don't know how many hunters he had today.
