A week too late....

Postby dukhntr » Sun Feb 05, 2012 7:32 pm

Here is a video from my buddies cell phone. We shot a 2 man limit of honkers on this hunt and could have killed a truck load of mallards. These ducks made an awesome show. Had to tease them with the duck calls as well. The water hole is only about 20 yards wide. These ducks were waaaaaay closer then they appeared on the cell phone video...

Then today, super bowl sunday, we scratched out a few more honkers. My wife's first trip waterfowling. She had a blast and will be hunting with us next year. One of them birds landed about 5 feet from her feet, then one of the kids shot it turkey style. :wink:

Congrats on the successful hunt.......although if one of your kids shot a bird on the ground 5 ft from me, I might have to have a little safety discussion with him.........just a thought.

It's good to see you getting the whole family involved, it will bring you many happy times together.

cheers,

TBS
IF I AGREED WITH YOU, WE'D BOTH BE WRONG.

I appreciate your concerns. However, our blinds were all lined up touching eachother. The boy made the shot (head shot) and I had no problem with it. He yelled and tried to get it to jump up, which in turned warned everyone hunting. Close range head shot= dead bird on the ground with undamaged breasts for harvest. Anyone that knows my profession knows how I am when it comes to gun safety. :thumbsup:

Dukhntr; Great video thanks for sharing . We have had the same experience regarding the ducks lately . There are tons of Mallards still around and we have been having fun seeing how many we can land in the goose decoys .Well done on your hunt and you got the bonus of sharing it with your family. Have a great day.

Looks like you had a great hunt congrats! We had a very similar experience last sunday as well, couldnt beat the ducks out of the decoys. At least they put on a show.

Beautiful shot of the Pins. My buddy Mike is holding one I took at the close of the first segment. It was the first bird of the morning . It had a 5" sprig and was very suitable for mounting. Pins are such elegant and graceful waterfowl it`s almost a shame to hunt them . But I do.

Well said, "elegant and graceful" I will always remember a hunt my father and I had two years ago at the bottoms. We hunted from sun up until about 2:00. We dragged our little layout boats deep into the middle of one of the pools where no motor boats could venture. I only downed two birds but had the privilege of laying still, watching flock after flock of pins fly overhead against a clear blue sky. It was one of those hunts when I was more of a spectator than a hunter, yet one of my all time favorite hunts. The vast size and isolation only the bottoms can provide, mixed with constant visuals of one of gods masterpieces.
