Anyone have any action in the Houston area this weekend or did rain keep everyone inside?

I hunted north of Sealy Saturday and there were a lot of birds flying. Sounded like some people around us had fully automatic shotguns with a few more than 3 shells in the tube!

I'll be just East of that area when I can sneak off work this week and its not raining. Love hearing the guys on the fields nearby hunting with their AA12s...

Decent numbers near Brookshire, surprisingly many more mourners than white wings.

Well, that was about the deadest field Iíve ever been on. We saw 1 dove fly by about 50 yards and that was it. There were two other hunters on it and I heard one shoot once. When I left, it looked like heíd cleaned a dove at the exit so I suppose there was at least one bird on the field.
Iím going to check it out later next week. I just donít think there are many birds down here yet. It was a nice looking property though.

I'm in Spring and normally have a limit sitting on my fence above my bird feeders. Haven't seen a single dove in 2 weeks. Kinda strange. They just disappeared overnight. Hunting south zone Friday. Hope that's where they all went!

Yea, Iíve been out twice in Waller and I mean, just nothing. Youíd think even a stray bird would work itís way across the field, but nada.
On the drive home, more of the same. Just no birds.
The folks in N Texas need to send them our way.
