Opening morning

Post by swampchicken » October 1st, 2017, 1:22 pm

Well today was the opener to missouri fall shotgun season. Took the girlfriend and birds flew down from roost and harassed by 2 yearling deer. Was funny watching them get ran around till the deer made them go the wrong way. The birds only got to 65 yds so we pulled out of roost location and left them be hoping they will return to same roost. Hopefully they don't get harassed this evening so they provide a good shot for the girlfriend to shoot them.

MD's opening morning is on the 28th of Oct. Me and 4 of my buddies are going to Greenridge state forest, this will be our 3rd year. Should be a blast, totally stoked.

Good luck all. Ours is coming up oct 28th. I’m ready been seeing some gobs and hens. I won’t pass on the gobs but I sure like to save them for spring. I’d like to see some hens though. 👍🏻

For those of you whose fall season is in, how are the birds acting? Are they talkative or tight lipped? Elusive or in previous season spots?

Thanks, I'm not seeing a lot of acorns falling like I have in the past here. Not sure what is happening in western MD were I'll be hunting though. Guessing that it will be close to what you are experiencing though. Are they reacting to calls any?

Around me there not bunched up much. Gobblers are running in their own pack and hens and poults seem to be in groups of 3-12 per group. They are not talking much but have called numerous up the last 2 weeks.
