    You all will love this. I came out to my spread around 2 pm and sat for awhile in my car as the ground was soaked as were the decoys.

    However, a flock of a 100 circled my decoys and ended up in the field. Drove out on ATV and ran them off but discovered ground was okay so went to spread.

    Been here well over an hour on the cell and decided to put my other hoodie on as temps were cooling off. As I am putting it on a group of migrators appear out of nowhere at the outside opposite edge of decoys about 150 yards past and here I am struggling to get my jacket on! Needless to say they kept on traveling north...

    I HATE layout blinds!
