Do the guy a favor and don't quote his text about it. Everyone makes mistakes.
And I would go back and edit your posts to remove that stuff about shooting coots ;)

Lmao you gotta admit it's pretty hilarious to talk about using not one, but two protected species as a dog training device and then not even realizing they are protected. I think he might even me just be pullin our legs.

well I was about to by a lotto ticket. pair of gws come in hot and fast I jump up and BANG 2 ducks with one shot AGAIN. this was at like 10yrds with a patternmaster 2shot. shooting was fast and ferrous for the first 12. and my shootin was pretty hot today which makes a day better. we sat on 12 ducks for quite a while then I startd screwin around with the binocs and was lookin at ducks 1000yrds away and was like here they come guys lol. but then some then sum that were buzzin the water were actually headdin straight for us about foot off water im like here they really come about 500yrds off and screamin guys right of diver line. theyre like were right out from the diver line. they didn't see them till they were right in front of us im like some one gona call it??
we just and the ducks when straight up about a flock of 20 gws I dustd one straight up love hearing that sploosh from a high duck. and then got one with a lucky bb as they were flyin off when the smoke cleard we had 4 ducks down. then 5 min later we had a pair of red heads buzz the out side of the line and 9 shells later we had our 3 our 3 man limit lol.

and im seein sum buffy already

11 gws
3 hen ringers
2 hen redheads
1 gaddy
1 hen mallard

But then on the way home after what I would call a great day im passin some water that 60 geese in it aleast so I make a mad dash to the owners house and ask if I could possible jump shoot some of the geese he had sittin after a little hesitation he granted me permission YES I was thinking then I offerd them a goose if I got one and they declined I was ok thank you very much. So I spun around and then second look therer were more geese then I thought and they were close so I parkd car and jumpd out and rippd gun out and I was actually shakin from adrenaline because I knew I was about to jump the biggest flock ever and at least get one goose with the way I shoot. so I go runnin down the ditch up a small hill and hit the tree line and fly to my belly and start to army crall threw thorn bushes leaves and down a hill and up to the grass line and I can see the geese and there close and talkin like crazy and swimin away im think aww chit they must of seen me in my fast and furious army crawlin they jumpd up so did I and bang goose down bang goose down bang goose down. really im thinkin in my head I ive never done that before I throw more shells in and finishd 1 swimmer and a duck flew over and I took aim and I was like wooooo hang on there killer you already got your 6. and im just shakin(which is a good thing because that means I still get the rush from hunting) then I lookd at the geese and went crap to far out now gota get a boat ran back to car.....click click click. Really call buddy he comes and we fart around car don't start......long story short starter fryd and this is why I didn't buy a lotto ticket. I toss 10 foot jon boat in water and start paddlin wit a snow shovel that's all buddy brought me let me tell you I bet them guys drivin on the highwy thought it was kinda funny with a fat bearded man in a little jonny paddlin around with a shovel .


So in all this is the first time ive ever shot my 6 ducks and 3 geese so to day was actually a great day.

Oh boy, does that look good! Do you grind up the birds in a conventional meat grinder?

yea I broke down and bought a good size one it will do 6lbs a min and I put it to the test and did 24lbs in 4 mins but not recommend she was a little warm just because it says it can do it I wont do it steady. but it didn't take me long too grind up 65lbs of meat. of course now that I got it my buddies don't bring me there deer any more. I use to butcher 8-10 deer a year.

But to day was my little ones bday she turnd 4 and I had her in the duck blind again for birthday I had her in the blind on her 3rd birthday.

Damn Hillbilly if you don't mind me asking what do you have for a boat/blind setup? Is it mostly custom? That looks exactly like what I wanna do!

Sure Will try.

I think y'all will be good. 40 and 50 today and tomorrow.

Y'all will probably catch a big push of birds.

I believe we are going to have to work hard for them this weekend.

I'll keep you posted.
