The city bird numbers have dropped a lot this week. Are people still seeing flocks in fields? I want to hunt this weekend and I'm getting worried.
Totally agree....noticed this morning(here south of the dity)SEVERAL flocks,way up high,and heading south...they were not doing their usual flight out to a field to feed,they were heading south!bulldog007 said:Colder weather on the way for the weekend so I would not give them more than a week or two at best.
Were you south of the perimeter? Towards Lasalle. I just did last night and this morning ditch pass shooting and have a freezer full. There were some guys in a field with decoys and they had very little shooting. I was watching in binos and the geese wanted nothing to do with them. Millions of mallards around there also!Chixfishing said:I hunted a corn and bean field last weekend that had wave after wave of geese come in and flare off. Being so close to the city, I thought they were decoy-wise. So yesterday AM, I laid out without decoys to see if I could just get some coming in on their own. Well yesterday they wanted the wheat field behind me. I managed to get one passing by low enough.
Fickel birds. Worse than women. :lol:
I have great fields but am uderexperienced, I guess. I didn't bring my mallard decoys but I might try that next. At first light last weekend and this there were some flocks circling the field.
I'd second that! I am thinking I will book a personal day for one last shoot. Have never tried ducks in the field before.....anyone have an extra spot?Chixfishing said:I think I'll have to take a morning off work this week and try out my mallard decoys.
