The problem with DWU plants and hunts is the idiots. If the field has birds there will be someone who will shoot your dog. Pleasure of hunting with idiots. Wouldn't be surprized to hear they will shoot you too. I have been peppered.

Shearwater,

The problem with going by a map is that the crops change every year. What doesn't change are the ditches and the cover.

A field that had asparagus last year and provided great feed and cover could be sugar beats this year.

Alfalfa is always good and easy to hunt, if its near the other essentials.

Scouting is your friend down there. I saw a lot of birds recently out in the open. If you don't scout before the opener you are going in blind...

Luck and a good dog go a long way if you don't scout.
