It was pretty tough to say the least. Corn is still in everywhere around Milford. It was warm and muddy to.
We hunted 4 hours. Went to 5 spots. Saw birds in 4. My setter pointed 11 hens. One of the pups had a nice point in a small crp patch. Just one of those days where nothing went our way.
I’m in South Dakota now. Killed a limit today. 95% of corn still in and all the sloughs are full of water.
It’s been a crazy weather year!
We'll see how things turn out after the crops come out. We keep getting snow up here in this part of the state, then a melt-off so like most of the state and midwest, harvest has been slow. 3-5 inches tonight and tomorrow possible.
I hunted Green River Nov. 3rd/Friday. They open the season a day sooner than the rest of the state. Kinda wanted to hit the wild birds before the pressure hits. Saw one young bird. No tracks in the snow. I was surprised. One of the habitat workers out there said he saw a good number of hen's with broods this past summer so they're out there somewhere.
I hit another area near the Illinois/Wisconsin boarder for wild birds. Again, snow on the ground. No tracks. This was a first for this area (with not seeing birds or at the least tracks). I think the snow may have moved the birds out or had them hunkered down somewhere.
God willing I'll get out again this coming week.
Anyone else get out at all and Ehudgens how did your SD trip turn out over all?
