Picture Contest ENDS FEB 1 - Winner Gets Duck Call - '08-'09

Postby MM » Mon Jul 28, 2008 11:02 pm

I want to see your pics for this season. The key word is THIS. I hope you can be honest because I have no proof... SO, lets keep it real guys!

The contest will start Sept 1 and will go till the end of the southern zone. ANY '08-'09 pics will be allowed. Deer, ducks, geese, dove, whatever... POST IT UP!

You can post up multiple pics as the season goes on. Have fun and be creative! :thumbsup:

The winner will be picked by me and I will select the call in the next month or two. Not sure what I want to buy for you guys yet :biggrin:

...at Grant Park. While we didn't have many takers due to their flooding, I did have plenty of hunting action.

Unfortunately, Mayor Daley doesn't allow hunting them during the Early Season!

You may be wondering why that goose head is not connected to its head... Well.. That is what happens when a single comes in a little too close as in 4 feet close.


This picture is me with the 5 bwt and 5 geese we shot on the last day of the early season.

Nice pics lostpup.

I usually try to take some nice pictures, but I haven't been taking many this season.

Here's my only contribution so far.

That was what it was like the first week.

Unfortunately, this is what it's been like lately.

Just me and the dog looking at empty skies.
