I'll take them, but I wouldn't trade me teal for them. You know me.

They're my favorite bird. I'll pass on mallards for em. Sporty to shoot, all business, and excellent on the table. Love them green wings.

Well, it took us a until a little past 7:00, but I had two guys in the blind that had never seen a group of birds with more than 5 in it. We dropped more outta the first flock than the combined total that they'd collectively killed in their lives.

Seems like that's always an issue on Mondays after a good weekend. Warm bodies are harder to come by this time of year. I've got a pretty good crew scheduled for tomorrow. Hope the birds keep acting stupid.

Our speck limit was over quick. We had 20 or so land while I was loading my gun. 4 shots later is was over. We fought off hundreds more for the next 10 minutes. :crying:

Somehow we managed to get no photo evidence of me and the band. When I got to the shop I cleaned it and went on. Cannon was nice enough to let me win the "flip" and got my first band on my lanyard! Mucho props to the gipper!!!

Had to work. One of the guys parents is in bad shape and had to take off. So the boss ask if I could stay over and cover the gap.
Cannon & Cason, Thanks, might take you up on that at later date, maybe with the "rambler".
Cason, I know that Mr. Byers use to say kill all the geese, they are eating up my duck food. He hated them there geese. :lol3:
Talked with the guys at our farm, the 2 of them killed 2 limits today. Only 1 hen mallard, 1 hollywood, couple gads, the rest was teal.
Great shootin, keep it up!

There's no doubt that he hated them, but I think I found someone yesterday who hates them more than he did. Cannon was eager to put them on the water.
