Good luck gentlemen and ladies! :beer:

I lost all three of my fields in the North Zone this year. One to a hunt club, one to a village incorporating the land, and the last the farmer had an epiphany that he wanted to start hunting waterfowl this year. Doesn't stop me from scouting for new land.

I have two fields in the North duck/Central goose, but one was soup today and the other was not even cut. I will be staying in tomorrow AM and enjoying a twelve hour shift at work. Ugh.

Pretty slow so far. A nice group of ring necks swung by, only got two.

New laptop and finally found my dang username and password!

Took the kid out for youth today at Mazonia, swatted a woody but it didn't stay down. Taking her back out tomorrow though for some more fun.

I "heard" that Heid sounded like WW3 today, could just be usual rumors though.

Today was amazing for my group. Hunted cut corn. We were on the X. 15 ducks 2 geese, 1 banded mallard. Best opener I have ever had. Gonna leave the field sit for a while ss to not burn it.

Good opener at the Chain. Our group (2 blinds and 5 guys) ended with 16 ducks and a goose. We left at 9:30 am and there was still movement. Nice to see birds again.
