    Never hunted in the fall, but spring hunting is the most challenging bird hunting of all.

    I'm not a fan of busting the birds intentionally. Find a roost, get close, call them in. I hear birds KeeKee, but never actually had one come to it. I hear more of that kind of hen calling in the spring than the fall, too. I don't chase them in the fall shotgun season much any anymore because I'm either working on duck clubs, or training dogs.

    Went out for Maryland's season 2 weeks ago. Got a nice Jake. The sad part was the large number of people ( I won't call them hunters) I observed driving the old logging roads clearly trying to spot and shoot one from their vehicle.
