Huge Week

Man! What a week! Very unexpected. Early/mid November is almost always way beyond SLOW for those of us who hunt in the central valley of California. But this year with it being the same story I have had enough so i made the call, time to head north and try to find them and find them i did! We went up to the Oregon border and it only took about 30 minutes of scouting to find them flying around thick. We pick out a killer looking spot and proceeded to hammer them for the next 3 days. I was so cold the birds would fly until around 10am but when they started flying it was crazy! Wave after wave of huge flocks, mostly widgen. It was awesome  watching these flock come in trying to land on my head. It was even so good I had our camera man Ben take a break and shoot his limit. The best part was that when i came back Thursday night, the killing continued out on the rice on Friday followed by an absolute massacre on Saturday out in the marsh, thanks to a 20mph north wind. This was a December worthy week that came early.I ended up killing 48 birds over this past week.! bird short of a perfect week. I love it!!!! Knock the piss out of ‘em
