We did good at FP but not as good in years past. Sat and Sunday were the best and we got close to limits but Monday and Tuesday there were not as many flying. The cover and food is nonexistent and the birds are not working all the fields but just isolated areas. water is ok but not as deep as years past in all the fields. Lots of pintails and Blacks this year. got a few full color mallards too but most of the mallards were immature.
They are claiming that the cranes ate most of the seed in the north field and the deer ate the rest. IMO the farmers are planting crap seed for the rows that will be left (was told last year that they use old leftover seed) and the good seed for their crop to be harvested but that is just what it looks like to me. I have farmed and worked farms for years and that is the crap you get from bad seed (short or no eared corn).
