'12-'13 Picture Contest-with 3 giveaways!

Postby huntall6 » Wed Sep 05, 2012 2:26 am

these have been my favorite threads over the last couple of years, so i figured i would start one for this season.

pics must be from the '12-'13 season. dont have to be waterfowl, but it is encouraged. early goose season through turkey/snow season will qualify. i am going to try to get a prize for the winner from one of our sponsers, but if not at least you will get bragging rights until next season! :lol3: the contest is open to all states/countries so let your out of state buddies know too. i will be numbering the photos as they get put up to identify them easier. good luck, and there is no such thing as too many pics!! :hammer:


*we now have THREE prizes to be awarded to THREE different winners this year! generously donated by members of this board, KillerKowalski, Asmythe, and Theircommited10 (Gary from CCC)*

First is a hand-made lanyard from asmythe. if we are lucky, maybe he will post a pic for us to see...

Second is a new Small-bore Throwback duck call, hand turned by Gary at Custom Committed Calls!

Third is a $25 gift card to the winner's choice of waterfowl retailer, graciously donated by KillerKawalski!

Everyone throw a HUGE thank you to these THREE folks for donating to this years Photo Contest!

Bout time I killed a goose this year. Was huntin a 2 acre pond surrounded by trees and 10 minutes before LST about 200 geese (not joking) got up and were flying all around me so I was working birds with my 4 goose decoys out there and managed to split this guy off his flock and hammer him coming in cupped and committed to the dekes.

first mallard drake ever. I've killed 6 mallard hens but never a drake, and no I don't aim for the hens because I always try to shoot drakes if I can but for some reason all I hit is the hens but finally this drake and his buddy dive bombed my field spread this afternoon because I think they tried to tag team my mojo hen decoy. it feels good to kill a drake for once :yes:

This used to be a cool thread until it turned into straight kill pics one after another. Tailgates and dudes holding dead birds are a dime a dozen and very boring. Thank you to the guys that are getting some worthwhile pictures!
