Any of you from non traditional states(North East, Upper MW are traditional) that hunt much for woodcock?

You need to include Louisiana as a traditional state b/c the majority of woodcock winter in the Atchafalaya Basin.

I hunted them in Colorado when I lived there

yeah, I chased woodcock around in the spring to train pups here in south west indiana, but have never heard of anyone really catching a good flight of them in the fall....

I am a traditional state (WI) and I hunt them all the time. My favorite little bird right next to grouse.

I shoot about 15-20 a year here in Kansas. I just let them come into my duck decoys and carry some lighter loads for them. They're good eats.

I take shots at them during the walk in to the blind. Never hit them as my shot is usually too large, and they fly super crazy. Good thing about them is they don't fly all that far, so you can follow them until you get them....I give up after the 3rd flush.

Last two evening drives have spotted several early migrators fling to roost.
