Young Birds

5 posts in this topic

Went out yesterday from 1 - 4:30 and was able to get 2 JR Roosters. I hit 4 wma and only ran into 5 birds the whole time I was out 3 JR roosters and 2 hens. Thinking the numbers are way down from last year but their still is standing corn up making it easy, plus last year I was able to get out alot more. South Metro

We got out yesterday and ran into about 40 birds (20 of which were roosters) all of which were on public land, shot 3 and should have had a limit for three of us. One of the roosters was very young, tail feathers were not complete and still had some brown feathers on the belly. Kind of late for those young birds to still be around, but the late corn really gives them a place to hide.

I spoke with a neighbor the other day that hunted some public land S of Alexandria, not sure where, that stated they had never seen that many birds on public before, ever. He did say the farmers were combining some nearby crops so that probaly had a lot to do with it. Other than when I ran into a few roosters S of Litchfield a few weeks ago it was one of the rare instances where I've heard favorable reports.

Assuming that "south of Alex" was Pope Co., we do still have some corn in even still. Not like last week, but there's still a bit. Birds seen on public lands are going up though as a result of the field activity and I'd agree, there's still the odd young rooster harvested w/ plenty of brown remaining.

I guess I was more going towards how hard the spring was on the hatch, and that there was a late hatch as well. Or my outing was chance to run into 3 JR roosters. But as stated the numbers are down overall, still some good hunting to be had.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
