You go Martha! Good show!

You’re a lucky Dad Edgar… but you know that already.

Numbers were a bit down for me on both my Maine hunts this year. Got back from the NMW's yesterday. Moved around 120-130 birds with 2 poor rain days as well. Chased doodles mainly as they do not go into hiding. I'll try to post some pics.

What zones did you hunt curiously?

We had lots of rain on Wednesday and Thursday morning and consequently the best woodcock covers were under several inches of water and the woodcock simply weren’t there. And grouse numbers were not at all what we had hoped for, probably also due to flooding conditions. We hunted a lot of cut-over country halfway between Houlton andPresque Isle.
But we had a great time with friends and guides the whole time we were there.

Have been in northern NH since Oct 1 and we have had similar experiences with woodcock. Except for one 2 day period where dogs found bunches of flight birds, it has been a slow trickle down- one or two here and there moving through the coverts. We have had warm weather and a south wind the entire month! Today is supposed to hit 70. We will be along the streams to keep the pups cool. Grouse points have been steady but less than last year.
