    Got out in the HIGH WIND and snow this morning. Killed 22. Not a lot of birds this morning but the ones that were around came in low through low and screaming through the snow . Going to check out the pigeons when the wind dies down in a little while.

    Slower shoot this morning. Only got 33. They were going right to grain bins instead of our decoy spread. Farmer wants us to set up by the bins next time. What a shame!!!!

    Crows are incredibly smart and often send me home talking to myself. If you do not conceal yourself well, then forget about even trying. You can have the best calls and decoys money can buy but if they see you or something they do not like, its game over. Download the documentary "The Secret Life of Crows". It will give you a whole new perspective of what we are dealing with.

    The hardest thing to do is just pick one bird out and shoot him before moving to the second target. Once you start flock shooting it ruins your shooting style for good. The beauty of pigeons is that after the first wave of shooting, they will often circle and come back or go to a silo or other part of the field and come right back to your decoys. We had a flock of about 100 birds come in at once last week and my poor brother in law never fired a shot because he didn't know which one to shoot at first. I LOVE those steady 3 and 4 pigeon groups. Oftentimes you can get them all.

    If you are going to be at least a little bit serious about it get 2 mojo pigeons and a half dozen full body decoys. They come right in and try to land in the set. Having 30 birds descend at once gets your blood pumping. Cheap Walmart Winchester or Federal 1 1/8 oz 7.5 and you are good to go. I now have 4 mojos...8 Flock Flickers...12 sillosock decoys..a rotary carousel....2 flappers...and. Dozen Soar No More full bodies...im sick in the head...my wife thinks ive totally lost it (though she is the one who orders two of this and three of that). As it is a 12 month a year hobby with no limits and no rules...you get a lot of enjoyment for the initial investment. Try to fnd a dairy with silage bunkers this time of year. In summer find a fresh cut eheat or rye field. You can have 2-3 hours of solid shooting every morning.

    Good shoot today in the snow. Birds decoyed fairly well. We managed 75 in a couple hours.
  14. Was 6 degrees when I set out the dekes for crows this morning

    It is strictly pest control for the farmers. The pigeons are city/bridge birds that fly out to the dairys to feed. I won’t eat them. And Crows...tried it once...never again.
