hello ya'll :salude: akredneck, you caught me on the Missouri page. yep, there back. The Kenai flats are still mostly covered compared to last year but I saw snows, and lesser canada's and nice fat Pintails, Gadwall and mallards. Sure is neat to see them make the long trip back. If any of you guys lived in the lower 48 before moving to AK, it doesn't take much to really appreciate what our birds go through.
I like to think and it is true that most of our ducks go to CA and winter and to wonder if a duck was on the club i hunted 22 yrs was then wading on a pond in AK brings back many memories. Of course they could have easily camped out 20 miles east of Seattle but what a migration they run.
Nice to be here at duck hunting chat. The first week in May, will be 2 yrs that I've lived in Alaska. I grew up and in CA just about all my life; but 4 yrs in Oregon, and Duck hunted California's San Joaquin valley every year since high school where the hunting was great.
It's just me and my lab up here. I hope to get back to CA this winter for 2 months. My dad lives on a duck club and I helped him with it for 22 yrs. But not before I feel the blowing snow or driving rain. It seems every day in October, in Alaska the weather would be a perfect day for back home.
Wow, that is a huge grizzly
