Where you chasing roosters that itís warm? We froze and nearly blew away on the opener.
Headed east next weekend to close the season out, itís always a cold trip!
Was a slow opener, we donít want for land to hunt or group size... very few birds. Told by the local guys the drought killed the bug hatch, which is what the chicks eat. Saw hens during harvest that had young chicks suggesting they had a 2nd hatch because the first didnít make it.
FishHuntNow: Thanks for taking a break from your busy ice fishing schedule to watch:) Looking forward to the next video!
Ajax5240: Bird hunting has been extremely tough this season. Not nearly as many birds this year. I pretty much hunt walk-in Ďs which makes it that much more difficult. That being said, love doing it. You hunt some big groups! I bet that helps to corral those sneaky roosters.
Keegan: The bond you build with a bird dog is special thatís for sure!
Yard dogs: My dad used to hunt pheasants in the Montrose Valley along time a go. I have heard they are pretty much gone now.
3wayfisha: Yep! Get a walk-in map head east and start walking fields. Harder without a dog, but it can definitely be done. Snow helps a lot. Most all of my birds are shot on walk-ins. Just have to find the good ones.
Ajax5240: itís a tough year for bird hunting...makes me feel better that Iím not the only one struggling.
Anglerwannabe: beautiful dog! As you can see from my videos, I also love labs.
FishHuntNow: Would love to fish with you some day.
I actually stopped ice fishing a few years back when I got my dog and started bird hunting. I usually take a break from outdoor activities in February, March to focus on house projects and my honey do lists. Start up again in April.
