Hey all, well, looks like my season is done. Went out yesterday and it was tough going. To back up some, last week over Thanksgiving we had a couple days of melt. Did clear off some areas, but not all.
Got to a couple of my good spots, looked okay as the field I had to cross wasn't deep. Then I got to where I wanted to hunt. The snow depth is deceiving. What looked like ankle or so deep snow turned into knee deep snow! It was tough going for me and my poor Addie kept busting thru the soft stuff.
As to birds, saw plenty!!! I mean they are bunched up good. Must have seen at least 40 or so in one area. Problem is.....they saw and heard you coming and flushed way, way out. Got to the placed where they flushed, hoping that a couple held back....no dice, they were gone. The dog really tried, but just too much for her.
Hit the second place.....same story as the first!
We're supposed to get more snow today and tonight, 1-3" and more after tomorrow. If the winds pick up.....drifting again!
