    Anyone still after them,I got out Thursday afternoon on a solo hunt and killed my first banded bird of the year.
    Weather is finally starting to cooperate,actually saw a few ducks also.

    Been hunting a little , but few birds where I'm at this year . Good amount of birds west of me but they have a "no discharge" law there .

    Heck the ones (resident Giants) around here are still eating grass! I live a block from the River & haven't heard any geese in awhile. Talk about a "wild goose chase!" :l I think all them hunters are holding the geese w/baited fields in Northern IN! :eek: ;) :l

    They are not baited Virg ! They are planted for erosion control . And pickers are just like any other machine , they have problems from time to time .

    Hey Virg , you ever hunt on a Dairy Farm when there is snow on the ground and the farmer has spread manure ?

    It's legal bating Virg . Dairy Cows have a hard time digesting corn and the "spoils" really show up. Don't think I hate geese bad enough to hunt them that way anymore .
