I am going to grab the flintlock and try to kill a doe tomorrow morning. We hit the field this morning and I watched hundreds of geese fly right by the cut corn field we were in and land in a pond instead. Why aren't they eating corn with the weather?!? I need a break, I will give it a shot next week. Good luck!

zdawg we came up with a theory.. The geese have adapted to a lifestyle where they don't have to eat.. I've never seen birds fly to water the way they have been this year.. We hunted this am, fortunately had 2 flocks come and scraped a 4 man limit out of 2 flocks (first volley was 9 then ended up getting 3 out of our last flock).. We watched a few small flocks go to the one pond nearby and never leave in the am..

The two of us headed out yesterday AM. Everything seemed ok til the first truck of 4 guys pulled in at daybreak. Asked the first group to lay in with us over our spread but they opted to do their own thing. Then, about 815 am, 3 more guys pop over the hill and ask if we'd mind letting them in with us. That was no problem, but suddenly our nice snowy hide became a mess as not one of them had a snow cover. The birds showed but didn't want to work the decoys the way we wanted them to and calling shots was an issue. That and the group behind us sky blasting circling birds... Ended up taking down 6 combined and they hit the road around 10. We stuck it out til 2 and finished our 10 bird limit, with a bonus 5 ducks. All in all it worked out
