Opening weekend Reports

Postby MN Quack Smoker » Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:21 pm

Lets hear them folks, I will get it started. We had our big annual opening day trip to west central MN. First morning we split up into 3 groups of 5 hunters and had a pretty good openening day. 3 of the guys got dogs a year and a half ago and so we had 3 dogs on their first hunts or relatively close to first hunts and they were great. I think we only lost like 2-3 birds all day for all three groups. We brought home 47 ducks for the 15 hunters. Alot of teal and woodies, prolly 6-8 mallards as well. No geese though. We usually get a couple on opening day. Saw a lot but they were flying high, maybe used to being hunted as this is the 3rd season on them, lol.
Day 2 was alot quiter, few less hunters and alot less birds. All in all, great opener. Lots of fun, friends, food and beverages. Hope you all had similar openers!!

Just say no to Quack!

Central Minnesota. 3 geese and 2 BWT Saturday. 1 goose and 1 woodie Sunday. Small numbers do to my lack of shooting. Saw several flocks of BWT Saturday and had a few come in. Not huge numbers of ducks around but there are some to be shot if you know where to go.
