Split season, a week to reflect

3 posts in this topic

Well the week off in the central part of the state is coming to an end. I am looking forward to being able to hunt evenings soon. It will give the goose a chance to hunt after school a few times. That's going to be sweet. 

The local flock of geese by the house has settled down again. They have gotten bigger in numbers as well and are focused up on cerial grains one day and chopped corn the next. Still returning to water mid day and again late, 10:30pm-ish. So they are feeding well into the night. 

Looking at my counter the start to this year is on pace with last year bird wise. I have taken my first widgeon and Greenwing teal this year. I have also seen my first canvasbacks. 

On the bonus side I have hunted many new places and shared the blind or field with a lot of new faces this season. With the collapse of the deer herd I the area my family hunts the chance to hunt waterfowl has really brought the joy back into it for me. 

I hope those of you who are taking advantage of being out are enjoying and respecting the adventure.

The week off has given the ducks some time to rest from being chased hard the first week. I have been seeing more geese around and good number of ducks flying while I am driving in the morning.

I have to decide to hunt the refuge or the pond. I just can not make up my mind. I know both will have ducks and some geese. I will see if river rat316 is up for.

They do this down here in Texas (and I think most other southern states) and I think it's great for the birds and gives better hunting all around. Plus it gives everyone a chance to hunt a week later and shoot some prettier birds. Everyone wins
