Best hunt ever!!!!!!

19 posts in this topic

This weekend I had the best hunt of my life. I planned on meeting up with a buddy that has access to a lot of land. He was out of town for the first day, but I managed to get quite a few divers on my own. The 2nd day we saw thousands of geese, and limited out in a corn field. The last 2 days we field hunted mallards. That was the best hunting I have ever had. At one point we had about 200 mallard land just outside of our deeks. We adjusted our deeks, and the mallards were right on top of us. The area is loaded with thousands of geese, not as many mallards yet. We just got lucky to be able to hunt the land that we scouted. I am still having dreams of mallards landing on top of me.

You should not name areas in your posts. Can't you just say that you had a good hunt? You should edit this post.

its generally known that town x holds honkers, but naming areas your hunting is really getting frowned upon on public forums. ive been guilty of it before, but hearing 1 hunter show up in your spot and saying "found out about this spot from some guy on the internet" will make you rethink how you post. congrats on a great hunt though.

Not a huge deal, its just that it gets harder and harder to get access to land when more and more people decide to flock to the areas.

Congrats on the good hunt, and I'd love to see some pics of the hunt. Its hard to bee a good goose/mallard combo field hunt.

ZEEK,

Get over it. It is not exactly a big "secret" spot. They were there last, this year and they will be back next year.

I never meant to upset anyone, I dont feel that saying "near Fergus" is really giving a spot away.

Yeah I agree, "near Fergus" is not a great discription. Some people just think the birds belong to them, and no one else should get a chance to shoot em.

On the flip side.........They probably arn't "near Fergus" anymore

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
