Why do you think you are more successful on later season birds?Been that kind of year so far. Last weekend we had a point and I gave my son the pole position. He worked in just as I would have on the point and took the high ground expecting a flush at or just below the outcropping. I snuck in behind and had to cross a fence. I told myself I would be mid cross when the birds blow. I had one leg on each side when the single(expected more than one) jumped and flew back in the direction we had just come from. My son was out of position and I lucked out and made the shot with barbed wire in my crotch. Murphys Law type of thing. I find that later season birds and being very very quiet put more birds in my lap.
