Saw first woodcock of the year!

Postby Willie T » Sun Sep 24, 2017 11:08 pm

I saw my first woodcock of the year in Texas last week. Everything is still pretty wet post Harvey so they should stick around. That is about a month earlier than I normally start seeing them. Year old PP pointed it while we were walking out to dove hunt. Cool to see this early. The PP was ready to switch gears after finding the first one. Sitting at heel kinda lost its shine.... he held it together and settled in, but you could see "this sitting and waiting sucks, turn me loose and I'll go find us some birds".

Wow, that does seem very early. Are you in the Houston/NE TX area? That gives me hope over here in Louisiana.

Never seen and woodcock, and probably never will, but by all accounts they seem like a pretty cool little bird.
