Another great weekend!

5 posts in this topic

Went out Saturday thinking that there was hardly any birds left out there. We were wrong. We got eight old birds out of nine and missed a bunch which we always do. We had a black lab, pointing lab and a yelloew lab out in the fields and ditches and the scent was everywhere. We scared thenm out of the thick willows into the fields and it was a great day no wind and warm, had to downsize on the clothing. Maybe only a week or two left depending on snowfall and with the rain that will make the snow very crunchy and hard for the dogs. Hope others had a good weekend!

We had a great Saturday also. A friend lives in SW Minn. and his friend saves his great piece of land for us. We had a couple hundred acres of great land to work and it was loaded with birds. We had 4 guys and just my dog. We had our 12 birds by 12:30 and must have seen 100 birds (I am sure some a couple of times). Dog worked great and ranged in front of all of us but there was scent everywhere for the dog. He had a fun day as did we.

    • 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.
    • That should make things interesting
