Depression enroute

Postby yellowlabhunter » Mon Jan 06, 2014 6:44 pm

Well gents duck season will be approaching the end soon. Then you factor in football season is also at its tail end....then comes February.... the lull. I must say October -January is my favorite months....usually weather has hits us...fire place is rocking and Scotch is smooth. Well this duck season thus far a bust. Football great....college and pro. Not many fires but still have great Scotch. Just hope we all end our up and down season on a positive note. Just my 2 cents. Be well guys.

depression?? not even close.
One season ends... so another can start. :thumbsup:
duck season has been a little slow. Not the make or break for me. It's not over yet, I've enjoyed the season so far and I'll enjoy the next few weeks.
I fish all year anyway, but with the close of duck season... it just means I'm in the other boat more. :thumbsup:

Time to get your fish on boys !!

Usually i never look forward to turkey season during january, but this has been a rough duck season. Can't wait to slay some turkeys this year.

I'm having my uncle teach me this year. This season has been long and hard but I'm on track to put more birds in the freezer then last year.... plan on lowering the coyote population in my turkey hunting area..should benefit everyone on that slice of public land..then on to Turkey. With softball 3 to 4 days a week during all that time will fly by....
