Pick Up Flock

I need a cure. For the third time this year, Iíve been cursed by the dreaded pick up flock. You know when you havenít seen much activity and itís getting late, so you start to pick up your decoys and sure enough here comes a flock that buzzes by, but flairs as soon as they see you.

They alway seem to come in just at the end of shooting time.

Never fails, that's for sure. We also get the "belly-deep in water, untangling floaters" flock on a fairly regular basis.

Similar problem when I'm hunting outta the boat, stand up to relieve myself and I always say, "Get ready I'm gonna flag em in." Worked again yesterday.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

It’s called a sling don’t leave home without it. Layer down in decoys and shoot them. Have had truck and trailer in field and killed them

Now that’s some funny stuff. Glad I’m not the only one suffering from this.
