BRANT THEY ARE HERE!!! BEWARE OF YOUR SHOT!!!

Postby Lost Fish » Mon Oct 21, 2013 5:06 pm

Was out in Paddilla bay this morning chasing quacker's and had 2 Brant :mad: making a pain of themselves the whole time.

Was kind of neat seeing them the first time working the decoys, but after makeing 3 more random passes into the decoys it was getting old.

Tried had to make them cacklers on the first pass they gave us but just couldn't get enough white into them to make it a shoot.

Must going to be a cold winter if they are already making an apperance this year. Didn't have any work the decoys till end of Nov last year.

So keep your eyes peeled for them.

That would be very rare to see during the summer. I'd like to see pics of that.

Wow interesting... I have seen them on lake union as well. See them while crossing the bridges, As far as ID ing them, I lived on the east coast for numerous years the daily limit is 2 All season long and limited out on them LOTS of times (50+) I think I know what they look like...

I would like to see them on fresh water. That would be a first for me, since they feed on kelp, sea weed and other salt critters. Possible cormorants?

I have seen them up at Longview on the Columbia. Big storms push them in to the river. Yes, I am quite sure on my ID skills.

I used to shoot the crap out of them on fresh water, they would come off of hudson bay and head south over my location

I know which group and where you're talking about LF. They've been there since before duck season even started.

What's next Washington doesn't have grizzlys? Oh.... Wait after that... Wahington doesn't have wolves... Oh wait... Washington doesn't have carribou? Oh wait now... Washington doesn't have brants during the summer? Wow... Washington has a lame d*ck brant season what is it like 8 whole days in one county and 10 in the other?Wow... I have shot well over 100 brant in the 5 years I lived in the east... They are as dumb as a box of rocks and you couldn't pay me enough to eat them, I always gave them away.

And now that everyone is having a good time gutting and cleaning each other today. The basic point of the tread was to let hunters know that there are a few Brant in the bay and wanting to decoy easy. This way no one shoots them, seeings how Chris has to count 5K of them and usally we only clean the number by a handfull. A couple of dead ones early can kill the season on the bay.
