Yep, that field has some pigeons too. Shot 2 who were decoying like idiots.
Also shot a euro and a high crow. Crow needed 3 shots.
Only saw 1 whitewing
As soon as the farmer plows his milo, i ll drop 50 squab decoys with 2 spinners, it worked last year and shot 40.
That was in October.
There are about 8 groups of 20 squab flying over the field 50 yards up at around 8 am.
Its fun to throw 1200 pellets at them rats. rifle

The squab feeding in the fields in the Panhandle taste good.
Our city squab prolly chewing on used condoms behind 7/11, so no thanks.

Glad you got on'em. No pics for us. Luckily we had some red snapper in the freezer. We'll attack again at dawn.

Seven is still a good shoot, prolly above average.

I was gonna stop at 8 birds, to shoot this afternoon, but i much more prefer the early mornings.
There is just something about morning hunts i love.

I was happy with this East Texas solo hunt. I went today just to say I went. I was floored when quite a few birds started showing up. Best hunt I've had in 15 years.

Had to work this morning but scratched a limit out this afternoon near Woodson. Definitely nowhere near the numbers were used to


-If I buy any more waterfowl hunting stuff this year I'll be eating cat food and crackers for dinner.

I got a pretty easy limit on the opener. This morning we set up in the wrong part of field....but would not have made much difference. Slow morning for sure for our area.

We got 1. My son has been hunting himself 4 years now and I have put him on 3 birds. 6 years ago you could kill a limit with a rock and he would fetch but not anymore with water and food everywhere now. Need a guided hunt I guess at this point.
