I went to find a woodcock but found this guy from a neighboring preserve (which I don't have access to).

I much prefer her to find woodcock than this dumb phesant but I guess I can't complain especially when there was no woodcock.

I had a wonderful Saturday, in the NW CT.
It was too hot for November and wind was none, but the woodcock was plenty.
I was trying to avoid the pheasant areas, which had been released a day before.

I wish it was windy so she wouldn't bump a few birds, but for a second hunt she is doing good.
I don't know why people don't like hunting wc... they are fun!

I recently had an interesting conversation with a chukar hunter who hunts without a dog. He says he ties a helium balloon on a long string to his vest, and the birds hold until he gets very close. Purportedly, the balloon makes the birds think it’s a hawk. Theoretically, it seems possible, but truly strange.

Has anyone else heard of a technique like this.
