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.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
