Here's a pick of mine. Never mind the fact that my kid thought he should play with it one day and dropped it and the head popped off at the neck. Just wedged it back on :)

nice dreake gaddie for me. At LDC. But it was the end of the hunt that defined the season. We decided to pick up so I unloaded my gun but before I could take 2 steps 2 teal buzzed in and landed just outside the dekes. Figured I would end the season with a double and I did...a double miss at 30 yards !!! Oh well, there's always next year... :beer: :beer: Cheers and have a great off season.

Speck, one week ago, hunted both days this weekend on a private club and not a shot, decided to hang it up today around noon, cased the gun snapped the pack shut set it on the levee and partner went after the quad, three steps into the pond looked up 6 bull sprig locked up at thirty yards, laughed and waved at em, picked up spread............to be continued next season, in thirty years of hunting this has been the absolute worst I have ever seen.final count-31 ducks,7 geese. Time to dust off the rods and start prefishing, pro/am just around the corner!
Take a kid hunting, the memories will last a lifetime.

I have yet to shoot my last bird as it will be a goose!
My last duck was a drake Widgeon. We had a great last weekend with limits for 2 Friday and Saturday. Thanks to the 3 limit rule I went out today and 3 of got 14 ducks by 9 am. Luckily dropped 6 widgeon and 1 bull sprig in 1 flock. My Flat coated retriever had some serious fun and hasn't been awake for the last 6 hours. Duck deeks almost all picked up and 300 goose decoys are waiting in the pond for 3 weeks. Juniors will get some more fowl next weekend too hopefully. Overall a slow year with some highlights like this weekend..
The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Oops that's just ducks and geese...

My last bird was a greenhead that my uncle swears he got..... have it to him anyways. So my official non other person trying to steal it last duck was also my first duck today. Big fat pintail. Overall a decent year. Beat my previous record by 3 birds. Season total 138. Not expecting to even get close next season without any rain!
