Finally today I was on birds. One nearly took a ride in my truck too. I had birds on three sides and was doing the old scoot this side then that side of the tree until I had worn a groove around it. Then wouldn't you know a fourth bird shows up without announcing himself and on one of my scoots I hear a resounding PUUTT RIGHT IN MY EAR FROM BEHIND! AAAAARGGG, I turned to shoot but he was in fast retreat and offered no shot. All the other birds shut up, so i circled the last know location of two and struck the call and got a response, they showed but they were jakes and with our poor hatch last year I chose to leave them for seed. However, about next week they better keep their distance, LOL. It was great to finally get some action after three days of silence. All this on the same ground that has been silent.
Bust em, Bag em, thank HIm
