    Just wondering how everybody did, where, etc?
    I did pretty good, limiting 2 evenings out of 3
    seems they didn't want to fly in the mornings @ my fields
    Evenings were WIDE-OPEN from 4-6pm!
    burned lots of powder, that's for sure.
    might go out again after work today, if the weather holds.

    Congrats, give me a shout if you need an extra gun to keep them flying...

    Brian, glad you got some meat. The guys that hunted at our place didnt fare too well. (I think that they just cant shoot) They said there were lots of birds...but they didnt hit many..

    I tried a couple of places neither without much luck. Opening morning around Leonard in Fanin County they just weren't flying too much - only got one.

    I went out to the deer lease in Young County in the afternoon - still weren't flying much and most of those that were, were too far off. Took only 2 more.

    Would have, should have had several more but it's been a few years since I last dove hunted, never was a great wingshot.

    I did get a limit (and then some) of chigger bites though. :(
