Would like to open AV forum on the 2018 season
I was parked along Hwy N. I usually park in the road and try both sides of the road. Pretty hit or miss. Yesterday got lucky. Had to walk pretty far out to find them.
I heard a few shots in the direction of the main parking lot off 59 and to the west of that.
what part of scup were you at? I was out today, had more time and walked for a couple hours and the dog never even got birdy. was very disappointing. yea, quite a few people out, figured they had released but only heard one set of shots the whole time I was out. they definitely didn't release west of the junkyard. would see the tire tracks going back, nothing. (and no birds).
hopefully I'll be able to get out Fri for a short walk.
519 we need to get out!!!
hunted bong a couple times this year, still too many people. the bonus is seeing surfer out there.
try to get out a couple times a week at scup for short hunts after work. big time up and down. if you get lucky and hit it a day they stock there are birds to be found a little easier. unfortunately they get shot up real quick with plenty of people sitting in the lots waiting. if they don't stock, some never leave their vehicle. but there are still some birds to had, especially with the way I've been shooting lately. with it getting dark so early there's not much time to dig for pushed/missed birds for me but it gets me and the dog out for a bit and we see birds now and then. a lot of them tough to get shots at as their running and in the thicker stuff/trees.
I got out several times this week, only for an hour or 2 each time. Missed one on Tuesday, did not flush any Wednesday but got one today. Another hunter shot at one today in the same area I was in. Not sure if they planted a couple or a couple of birds were left over.
Was fun today in the snow.
