Thanks for the update. Do you think your seeing more birds than last year ?I am not a hunter ,so don't know first hand, but I only heard 3 shots all weekend whereas usually it sounds like a battlefield in the distance. I ran a test with a plot of sunflowers though. I went out at 7 am and watched to see what went into the field from grass cover and counted 43 birds. I went back later at 4:30 and watched (until 6:15) what went back in and counted 91 birds and 9 deer. I drove the road by the field and a few roosters gave the alarm distress from the field so I know there were more in there. Until the crops come down it will be hard out in the fields I think to find them...They have a lot of stuff to hide in for now.
