    Or in ducks' case, after shooting hours.

    Anyone having luck with pheasants?

    I'm finding a pocket here and there but nothing to boast about. Too much corn still standing in my estimation.

    Haven't seen many away from the farms they like to hang around.

    Man, deer opener Friday was interesting. Got my deer, but was totally blown away by the fact the big lake I hunt by was completely locked up. I have NEVER seen it frozen over 100 percent this early in the fall. I saw one big flock of honkers that must have been keeping a hole open somewhere else, but that was it. The waterfowl were gone-zo.

    Yeah most everything in my area save the river is done. Deer has been pretty interesting with some decent deer floating around most mornings. Few shots from the last two mornings. First guy has one of the biggest body's I've ever seen and the second is actually bigger then the pic makes it look although still not a shooter.

    I actually found a pretty substantial feed of ducks and swans on Saturday while pheasant hunting. No geese to speak of, but had I been prepared to hunt Sunday, it would have been a pretty awesome situation. Finally seeing a lot of combined corn (plenty more to go, however).

    Yep nothing like Nov weather in October and October weather in November for the second year in a row. Folks lake was locked up solid last week but hit her with a few days of 40's and 50's with lows above freezing and she's giving up the ice much to the 8 bajillion geese in towns delight!

    Man there are allot of nice deer out there this year. First one is decent and was with a good sized 3x3 as well as a 140 class white tail for what ever reason making for one oddball herd. The second is a full on stud and is likely in the 180's class.
