AP opener

Anyone heading out tomorrow? I will be setting up in a cornfield that was cut on Monday. A fair number of birds hitting the field yesterday and this morning. Lots of traffic too. Hoping for a quick hunt.

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Talked to my buddies in Lancaster area, 3 man group limited out and home by 10. Said they saw a lot of ducks as well. How did you do?

Bird numbers seem to be REAL low this year as compared to years past. No clue if that has to due with bird populations or this stupid snow storm we got but it's relatively quiet comparatively speaking to years past.

There are a lot of Canadas here near where I live in Lanc. Co. bit I am not hearing any shooting from the pits tat are not far from where I live, where I am seeing them is less than a quarter mile as the crows fly. There were a lot of ducks on the same ponds earlier but now mostly geese. They are roosting on the ponds and feeding in the cut corn fields and some grass hay fields near by..

Saw a lot of high flying migrators today so maybe things will pick up. Did well Thursday and a 2 man limit on Saturday. I can't tell if there are less birds. Seems the same to me.

A lot of birds moved down on Sunday, heard them flying high most of the day. I am seeing birds, but seeing them go to one field, that is unhuntable, and only about a mile from the roost, anyone hunting past that, will think there are no birds. But they are around, but most not going very far. Scratched out 3 lessers on Sat. morning, only one flock of 7 pitched in, everything else went to that same field. Just the way it goes.

See what the new wave brought down, or if they flew right over.

PS. Nice looking blind whaler.

So here's my dilemma. I'm trying to decide if I should give goose a shot or maybe duck instead on Wednesday. I haven't seen many geese flying, but once in while I see some bunched up in a field. I've barely seen any duck at all, so I'm thinking it's a bit early for that. Maybe I should just go pheasant hunting...

I tend to believe that you never really know how many ducks are around.....until you hunt them, not near as visible as geese. I'm going for ducks Wednesday........had to work today.
