Two weeks ago I jumped 20+ our of a small pothole in the woods hanging deer stands. Velvet scouted this past Thursday and saw another couple of small groups drop into a pond nearby.

We were checking one of our dove spots last night and we saw a bunch of about 10 or so drop into the pond, then another group the same size came screaming down the creek. Hopefully they stick around!

Thanks for the update, awesome resource that website is. My brother will be excited about the wood**** migration back home, not a whole lot that is more fun than getting into a popple stand when it is loaded with wood****. Two years ago, we hit one just right, and we limited with 4 guys in about 15 mins. Actually had to put the dogs on leashes to get them out of there, it was awesome!
