Comfy in the snow.

This rooster must have needed some cooling off. When I first came across him in the ditch, I pulled over and took a few out the window. Unfortunately, there was a truck coming behind me and no shoulder to pull off on. I then drove ahead a couple miles and came back. I got out and walked towards him, hoping to get a good flight shot. I expected him to explode into the air. Instead, he fooled me and started running first. My nice flight shot ended up not quite so nice. frown All he gave me to shoot, was his rear end. It sure would have been nice to have thinner clouds.

When I think back, that sure would have been an easy shot with the shotgun.

Although not your classic BIF rooster...I like the change of pace. It's kind of a "the last image you have in your mind before the shotgun goes off" image. Although in my case the next image after that is.......the rooster still flying off.

That's the look I have been getting lately. They get up and someone else shoots them or I shoot and they keep on going. Nice work X. How much snow you got, I'm heading out to Madison tomorrow to do some hunting with a bunch of friends.

I like the shots Mike, good work on them. That backwards view is one I'm familiar with as he flies away without a BB in him. frown

Yak, there is only about an inch of snow around here, but it's crusty and crunchy. Good luck on sneaking up on them roosters. wink I saw a bunch just driving the gravel roads from 3:00 on. They're out picking their grit. Of course, they're always on private land. mad However, road hunting may be the best way to find them.

Thanks, all. Next time, I hope to get the pheasant standing so as to get his legs in the picture too. Also, with brighter conditions, I believe I can get the eye a bit sharper. And, my shotgun will be with me next time too. grin

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
