Their on the Move
Woodcock have been scarce in my coverts for the first several weeks of the season. It's been hot and dry but superstorm Sandy changed all that. Yesterday Emma had 2 points in a local covert with me getting a shot at one but missing. Today we traveled northward to try several coverts. The first one was empty, but the second one gave us 3 nice points. I missed the 1st two woodcock as they lay in tight cover and almost let me step on them but the 3rd one Emma pointed was in more open cover and I finally connected for my first bird of the year.
