Re: First Hunt in Big Branch

Thanks, We use to hunt Joyce a few years ago and we would get mostly passing shots on greys heading to manchac, I definitely enjoyed my weekend in Big Branch but it was a fair amount of work. We did get our opportunity on a fine greenhead and his suzie. We had seen them flying around but havent been able to totally convince them to give us a look until today. The pair was flying about 100 yards away to a pre-set destination, I was able to turn the hen to us and she was very vocal back to me. She circled a few times giving us shots but I refused to call it because I knew there was a good chance the drake would come get his mate. Luckily I was right and he gave us a perfect shot about 25 yards over the blind, unfortunately I couldn't get my shoulders squared up to place an accurate shot and instead took three hail mary's, also my buddy's shell didn't go off so he couldn't knock him down. Just how this season has gone for us this year, I'm looking forward to next year though.
