2013 Season Pics (so far)

Postby Huntswithashorthair » Thu Oct 31, 2013 12:48 pm

We have had some good hunts so far this year in the north, south, and coastal zones. South/Coastal are back up soon, so hopefully we light 'em up through December. Decent numbers on woodcock and so-so numbers on grouse but this website isn't called uplandchat.com, so I'll keep that talk to a minimum. :wink:

I will upload more pics as soon as I minimize the file size and feel free to add your pics to this post.

Happy hunting.

I think that may be a juvi drake Pintail. Check out the wing and the bill.

Looks like a good time! :thumbsup:

I'm not sure on this one, but I think you might be right 733. The bill on Pinny's is a tough indicator (I think anyway), but looking at LeMaster's book, the speculum on this bird does in fact look more consistent with a drake rather than a hen.

The spotted dog took the day off but the red dog smoked 'em! Back in the truck by 8:00am.

Nice! I have a 2 year old german shorthair that I've been getting into duck hunting with (great upland dog so far). What region of the state are you in? Must have had good numbers in the sky today.

The boys tag-teamed a pile of ducks this morning and then pinned a ditch chicken on the way back to the truck. Now that is some versatile dog work!

Got a few the other day. Would have had more, but my new 870 wasn't ejecting properly. Not sure if I'm short shucking it, or I need to break it down to give it a good cleaning. Regardless, we got a few good retrieves for her. This is her first year duck hunting.

Excellent! :clapping: Any banded mallards in the bag yet this year? I took three last year, but haven't taken a banded duck at all yet this season. Thanks for sharing the images...you're making me miss having a dog more and more. :wink:
