Default "The Finisher"

Recruited Kyle (The Finisher) from Pontiac to hunt a 40 acre corn stubble field 2 miles NE of Dwight today. Picked a hump in the middle of the field, put out the deecs and the layout blinds and- It Was On! First flock left 5 behind for the pot. Then proceeded to pick off singles and doubles. The 5 gun crew limited out in about an hour and a half. Strong SSW wind today and they wanted in that field bad. Kyle was masterful at talking them into that particular corn field and Click, his Black Lab, was spectacular as well. Kyle and Click in photo 1. The Killing Crew in photo 2. Hunt organized by 'Pit Boss Butch' (back left of photo 2).

That's a great late season area. I've hunted SE of Gardner before probably not to far from where you're at. Right in-between all the hot tubs! A few years back we got lucky and I had never seen so many geese flying throughout the day. Of course they didn't want to be in the field we were in, but the adjacent field had to have 10's and 10's of thousands of them feeding in it. It looked like the ground was moving from the pit we were in! Luckily we were able to get a single or double to take a peek here and there throughout the day. But, I was simply amazed at the numbers. Never seen anything like that even on t.v.! That was a trip of a lifetime for me. Thanks for posting pics as that brought back some really good memories!

After reading the title, I only clicked on this because I thought there would be a link to a porn.

Nice job guys
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

I prefer to Die on my feet than Live on my knees

2sac is not bassalarro material.

Nice job Slim and crew! The birds have been like that non stop for the past few weeks and I'm not complaining a single bit after the last couple seasons! What's amazing is how many birds have been dropped this year and no bands out by me! But hey at least the freezer is filling up.

Nice! We have been deep frying them like turkeys every Thanksgiving for several years now. Pluck a few like a chicken and freeze them for the occasion. You won't believe how great the flavor is!
