We picked up some new birds from the north in western Nebraska yesterday. I took my boys on a scouting trip yesterday evening and birds were very scattered with no real concentrations. Got permission on the first feed I came across with about 1000 but they got up about 45 minutes before the sun went down so I figured they wouldn't be back tomorrow morning. Luckily I could see another feed about three miles away so I went over and checked them out and got permission for those also. I'd guess there were 1000-1500 in that group. There was another feed of about 500 about 3/4 of a mile away also. I could also see birds way to my east in my binos but it was kind of hazy and hard to see and getting late so I just decided to hunt that field in the morning. Fast forward to this morning and we were right on the X with bird tracks all over. I had no idea where the birds went to roost because I took off after sunset and the birds were still feeding, but they ended up roosting about a mile away and we could hear them while setting up. They took their sweet time to get off the roost, maybe 30-60 minutes after sunrise, but I suppose that is pretty typical of late season juvies. Of course they all came in one flock which I was afraid of but they came in close. Problem was they were super spread out and not bunched up. Two of my buddies had never decoyed snows, so I'm guessing they got a little excited and just plain missed. My other buddy and I didn't do much better only dropping one a piece. Had they been a little more bunched up we could have given ourselves a little better shot selections but that is how it goes. There was one straggler flock of about 20 that brought up the rear shortly after and a juvie dropped out from them and we added it to the bag to finish with three on the morning. It was a fun hunt still, especially decoying a big flock! Probably my last hunt of the season, but I'll keep my eyes open for another opportunity for sure!
