I have been out twice this year so far. Both trips I have seen and heard birds, didn't get anything yet. What makes this so cool is that I am hunting on public land.This is a new experience for me. I have been use to hunting on leased land and had to share the flock with the other members of our hunt club.
Hunting public land, so far, has been better than I rembered it from 10 and 25 years ago. I have as much competition from other hunters but our hunting time has been limited so the birds are constantly being harassed by us hunters.
I hope my future public land hunts over the next year prove as enjoyable.
