Braidwood hunting

Postby LimitsOnLimits » Wed Nov 13, 2013 1:43 pm

So i hunted braidwood lake this morning. Got 4th pick and didnt shoot at a single duck. My boat, spread, and water were sweet looking. I just dont understand why everyone keeps saying the birds are there.... i maybe saw 75 ducks total and i stayed out till 12:30!!!

I was also there. Had a late pick, there are no birds around braidwood. I heard maybe 15 shots. I got fed up and left at 10......

Braidwood hunting

Was there also. For all those that saw the boat floating a hundred yards out of the launch. Right here! Steering cable snapped. Had a decent blind too. Checked out and did plan B. Skunked. Very frustrating. Best part was we ate like kings of course.

Kowalski I saw you man. Thats the problem with relying on your boat to get you out there.

Run a tiller then you don't have to worry about such thing.. :lol3:
That would suck though..

Sure did. Nothing we could do though. 130 miles round trip for blue bird skies and breakfast. My kind of day. :clapping:

A few years ago my cousin broke the tiller handle on his merc while we were out 4 miles from the ramp. So we 2 man drove that unit wide open back to the ramp. He was the throttle man and I was the manual steer man. Gotta get where you're going!! Not going to lie. I would have sat back there and turned that motor my self to get out to hunt and back.

Maybe they did?? Then Paddle steer off the front?? Where there's a will there's a way.. I had to jump my battery at the ramp a one day here not too long ago. So, just to get out hunting we went up river, shot one duck. Then had to Mark Twain my boat back to the ramp. Wasn't going home.. Or to breakfast. Sticks make good paddles.. :lol3:

Hope everyone in the Braidwood area (and others) stayed safe today. Sounds like it got bad down there...
