Opening Day success!!

9 posts in this topic

My dad and I were hunting a wheat field in Kandiyohi County. Had one flock come in at 8:00 am. Took six out of that flock. Another flock came in around 10:00 am. Got the other four for our limit. We usually are not that good of shots, but I guess the stars were aligned right for us. How did everyone else do?

Congrats definitely made some great memories. And wow 2 true triples in one flock, that is outstanding shooting. Our group of 4 managed to drop 4 on a flair flock which was the only one to come close all morning. Shot some doves and pigeons in the afternoon as well.

What a difference a day makes. Hardly saw any geese today. Didn't even fire a shot at one. Got one dove and one pigeon.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
