I love reading all the posts that follow any SPY posting. At least there are a few believers and as always there are the jealous doubters. I've said it before...I have hunted with the SPY many times at this blind and if I had that kind of money and lived a little closer I would be all over that open spot. Like he says you just have to have a good attitude, some patience and put in the work. I have personally helped him with decoys and prep on several occasions and let me tell you, you always want to be doing something else because it is hard work, but the rewards come during those otherwise crappy bluebird days with no wind that the hard work pays off. I posted pics of the birds that can and do come into his blind earlier in this blog and it is amazing what goes on out there. This guy knows just about every inch of land in Colusa, Sutter and Butte Counties and if you are lucky enough to know him you will be taught. His gas bill has to be insane from all the driving and scouting he's done over the years. I am sorry I didn't get the chance to come over there this year to hunt with the SPY. There is never a guarantee when hunting but this place is as close as it gets. You won't get skunked. Just my 2 cents. :lol:

He only visits during the season I think

So I spent my last 3 days prepping 3,000 assorted decoys, placing 3,000 assorted decoys, prepping the blind and the check at the DUCKSPYS club. Should be SPECtacular at the club. I personally have never set that many decoys before but it was a grind. Not for the faint of heart. Swans, Specs, Snows, Honkers, Mallards, Sprig, Widgeon, Woodies, Cans, Spoonies and some confidence decoys to round it out. Gonna be an awesome show this year, weather coming in some this week will be a good start to the season. I have never seen so many specs before the season as there are right now. Took a ride thru the Sac. refuge closed zone loop today, tons of specs, some snows, quite a few mallards and some sprig. Outlook seems good. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You haven't seen the barn?


No, when do we get to see the barn! That's got to be some pile!


Try around 20k i belive duckspy said he had in there.

I saw them up close and personal the last 3 days, bags and bags with about a 50 average in each bag. When I figure out how to post a pic from this new laptop I will put the pictures of the bags here. :beer:

Well another season is rapidly coming to a close and it has been my personal best. Every couple weeks I have hunted with the DUCKSPY and it has been awesome! Started opening weekend with double limits of Specks and may have finished it with double limits of ducks this past weekend. Of course I didn't shoot them all on one day but I have to say yesterday was quite good... 2 specks, 3 bull sprig, 2 mallards...a drake and a hen, 2 spoonie generals and 7 teal...6 drakes and a hen. Now it is time to start the grind removing decoys, 3 trailer loads so far and it doesn't even put a dent on what is still out there. Hopefully I'll get in one more shoot day with the SPY. I can't thank him enough for getting me out there so many times this year. Think I'll have take him out in the boat and do some fishing when duck season has closed.

Interesting to read about all the decoys needed in the type hunting you all do.

I live where the hunt runs mostly to mallards and Honkers.
I started the 3rd of Oct with 40 full body Honkers and an X flapper at the edge of water, with four floaters close to the bank.
I had two Mojos and four floater Mallard decoys with four GHG rester/sleeper dekes on a small spit of ground sticking out into the water. A total of ten duck decoys.
The last two weeks I switched to four full body Honkers and the X flapper on the bank, and eleven floating Honkers next to them.
The duck decoys have stayed the same.
Last week five hunters in my blind took 35 ducks one day, and 33 ducks the next. Only two were teal, and only two were Wigeon, all the rest were Mallards. The third day, a classic bluebird day, three hunters only took seven ducks and a goose.
Set up time was a little over ten minutes each day with the blind taking as much time as decoys, about 5 minutes.

Sure is a different world from what you all have to do! But everywhere the circumstances are different, and a man has to do what a man has to do!
So the words Fall and Autumn are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world.

How's Delevan/Colusa looking up there? I was there last weekend, and that rain and south wind pretty much ruined any chance for us...
