What looked nice was the fact that it was adjacent to two corn fields and close to lakes and ponds. No birds anywhere to be seen though and I checked all the lakes and ponds. You seem to know more than I do about the crops so I was wondering what you would suggest as far as what fields the birds seem to be working this early?
Unfortunately my "honey hole" from last year is completely dry, so i'm damn near out of options. I don't own a boat so getting easy access ponds and fields is my only go to. This is definitely going to be the hardest year for anyone who is limited to not using a boat. I did stumble across a corn field with a pond in the middle of it that I know at sometime during the year has to hold birds in it because I see birds in the area all the time, at least in past years. I didn't ask permission in part because I'm afraid to piss off the wrong guy and also because I couldn't figure out which house's door to knock on. I won't have much time after today to do scouting because of classes beginning but I'm gonna try and make it out there once a week until the season starts to scout the fields and ponds. Maybe once I start seeing birds the adrenaline will kick in and I'll build up the courage to go ask for permission.
