After yesterday's promising scout/hunt trip after an unsuccessful Honey Island Woodie hunt,figured repeat of same game plan might yield slightly different results!!!Wrong,wrong,more wrong.The Honey Island Woodie hunt might have been better had I spotted fine pair of woodies making bee-line for my dekes but they veered off,landing about 70 yards out,flooded big-time,maybe with lower water a few cypress islands that are NOT submerged might pan out.Took exactly one shot at pair streaking through the trees and failed to connect-met two young hunters who ALMOST got 4-wheel drive Jeep stuck!!Hit NShore Marsh and chatted with two hunters headed back to launch,think they had some redheads and told me there were a few hanging around plus a nice trophy greenie(I am way behind my typical greenhead haul/year)and I set up in incredible natural blind that I supplemented with palmetto branches.Hoped that nice flock of greys I spotted yesterday stuck around but I left around 11:30,more than bummed out and texted wingman,Bayoubob,that I was unfortunately tossing in de towel,at least for the time-being and hitting fine deer stand,overlooking incredible food plot and deer feeder and have ample videography dat plenty does and bucks hanging round,hope to thin out dat herd pronto!!!Check out blind-think it was so well-concealed dat ducks could not find me!!!
