FINDING FALL. Birds will be making their migratory moves in the coming weeks, with many species already heading south.  We talk about a rare one and more in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

 

OPEN UP. For early upland seasons, utilize a more open choke, especially for ruffed grouse in forested areas.  As these birds are particularly close flushers, a wider pattern will increase the odds of connecting, especially with a lot of leaves still on the trees.

 

SO LONG SUN. Today will be the last day the sun sets after 8pm heading into fall.  At the current rate we’ll lose another hour of daylight by the end of the month, so soak in what you can!

WHOOPER WATCH.  Hunters and the public are requested to keep an eye out for migrating whooping cranes this time of year as the birds begin their migration south.  Currently endangered, two migratory populations make up the last 800 remaining members of the species.

 

 

Stay Sharp!
