We went yesterday afternoon, jumped an infinite number of Gadwall expecting them to all fly back in. Didn't work so well LOL Couple of Gadwall & 1 Green Head is all we brought home. Think I'll harvest a Doe tomorrow, be back on ducks Wednesday - Thursday for sure. Only about 7 weeks of hunting left - got to get while the gettin is good!

Cannon found a butane can in the burn pile the hard way and is nursing a very sore hand.

Got a few ducks hanging out down here trying to make some holes. The good news is they found some open water today.

We did the Charity Hunt today. These guys are hunters, but haven't hardly hunted ducks. Didn't matter what kind of ducks, they were just ready to go. LOL So down to the Gadwall Hole we went. And it couldn't have worked out any better. Eight limits by 08:30 - really turned out well. And Dad took the 9th grader to school after the hunt..

I haven't even been out since last Thursday. Trigger finger's developing a twitch. I might have to take a look around the place tomorrow p.m. Ice is a love hate thing for me, but the blisters on my hand have had me convinced to wait em out thus far.
