No bird on the opener..I had a bird respond to my crow calls i set up put out my decoys .about a 1/2 hour later some guy comes walking up.i let em know my spot he said he wanted to hunt ahead of me i said im calling them in from there.all the talking must of spooked the birds cuz that was it .i tried some running around i wound up on top of the moutain by some ski runs.well i got a hot bird he was answering every call.he go within 60yrds but wouldnt come out of the gully he was in .we went back and forth for an hour.i had to move my legs and i think he busted me.i tried to get around him but he went into private [roperty.I saw where he was calling from.In between 2 ski runs was a strip of woods in the middle of that was an open gully.I'll try again on monday.I wound up walking like 6 miles and my body is killing me .bad weather and weekend warriors dont help either.hopefully monday i can get up to the spot and get em early
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
