I don't usually start scouting till around august when the young ones are flying around more. I guess I don't really have to do much scouting though since I usually go to the same 4-5 spots every year and they are on private land.

No, doubt it that the season opener will be on Aug 29th but who knows?

Usually I will get permission for the same fields months in advance and chat with the owners as well. I'll start scouting when the fields are harvested!

It doesn't pay to start scouting until a couple weeks before the season in my experiences. Especially if some fields get harvested closer to the season.

I hope they don't open it on the 29th. It gets awefully hot sitting in camo in sun and 70 degrees!

I hope they open it on the 29th just so I can get some hunting in before school starts but don't think it will happen. I am pretty sure they said the tentative date was the first saturday in september but I could be wrong.

Its never to early to start looking for fields to hunt. I've been looking for fields sence the small grain started coming up. If you hunt water a couple of weeks are good. The 29th would be nice but I don't see it till the 5th.

Yep, not so much scouting for birds but trying to obtain permission for fields. It's nice to try to get a feel for is you are the only ones that have permission for the fields as well. Nothing can ruin a day more then getting all set up and ready only to have some other group (that has permission as well) set up (typically in a stupid spot) and ruin the day.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
