[FONT=Verdana]First off thank you very much for your service and welcome home![/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Birds are stacked up pretty good down off south concord some going North to the fields to feed and some heading South to IL fields but you can get under them. They have been pretty intent on going straight out and straight back but we have been able to pluck a few.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]If willing to travel there are a ton of birds south around the lake Odessa area with the river and area fields being an option[/FONT]

They are loaded on the river right now. We've shot quite a few in the last month or so over water and in fields. Usually a limit when we go out if you are scouting and know where the birds are and want to be....Huff
