This has been my worst opener yet. Two birds to shoot at,
3 shots, 2 birds in the bag. Morning and afternoon hunts.

Hunting near Coolidge

Yep it was below expectations, but at the end of the day, it was nice to just be out there.

I think Saturday I'm going to stay home and finish up some outdoor projects. Then get the rest of the hunting gear pulled out.

Glad you guys got to go out. I saw my first birds out here this evening, normally would see hundreds at a time the last 2 weeks of August. Not sure why the lack of birds - looks to be at least a couple of weeks until a front pushes the northern wings our way.

We hunted Haskell, this AM. 4 of us (2) limited out (2) were real close. We were cleaning by 9:45.
Most of the other groups were at limit or close to it.
I Love hunting West Texas, but the drive back is a whipping.

Northwest of Sanger I saw more birds than I have ever seen in that area. After the lack of birds last year, it was really good to see them.

Reports are- further west- most success- worst opener in 20 years. We all shot between 5-7 birds- 6 guns. Coleman. Expectations low. We have limited 15+ years in row in Haskell. Was very little feed in most of county.

Hunted w 5 of my best friends. Would have shot more birds at my places hour form big D.

Great day. Good warm up for dogs
