    I like the turn of phrase to venting, lol. Good to know I'm not as nuts about the small things as my buddies seem to think I am :D

    Keep an eye on craigs list
    I just bought 15 year-old Pro guides with snow covers $100

    Or show up in Poky: I have a Power hunter that could easily be fixed and a Pro-Guide Both: Two for $20

    Why is the corn up? How big are the fields ?
    I would consider hunting the last years disked field over a field with standing corn. And maybe hunt with few "partners"

    Pokey might be in the cards this winter, we'll see, if so I'll let you know. And the other half isn't disked, its just tilled up and left to grow over, partial pasture. Right now the we set the pit up on the diving line and have the spread "working" its way from the tilled dirt to the corn, with a couple in the first rows

    Corn can make an easy hide

    geese tend to stay out unless chopped, mowed or deep snow

    Umm, think I would try and find a used layout before I went all 1965. That would be a brutally uncomfortable way to hunt.

    This is what I have gone to for Canada, hunting pea fields that have blown off clear of cover. MUCH easier to hide than a layout. Unless you dig in 6-8 inches, which I don't do in fields I don't own.

    The field is a bit more regulated as its not an actual lease, everything runs through my bro in law. Good chance I'd take an extra shooter to Lowell with me though (hike in and shoot from shore, no boat). No geese on Lowell though, only ducks, but it's rare to get skunked.

    actually that does work well, and can be comfortable, and certainly easier to sit up to shoot
    a padded backboard and quilted backed cover is better than a Power hunter
