Gentleman, nice job on the photos but…

If you get a chance, post some photos of your set up including boat, dog, blind, decoy spread etc. Enjoy seeing/learning how other duck hunter's set up more than just seeing duck carcasses.

Yeah I like see pics from the field much more. I know what truck tailgates and dead ducks look like.

I strongly agree but I am guilty of it last weekend!! My wife went on the youth hunt and took pics so I thought she was gonna be my photographer this season but now she wants to hunt. Oh well, I will take a moment this weekend and try to take some more all around shots with the cell phone. I swore I would keep it put away after two iphones got wet last year!!!

Man...it's too early to post those pics of potholes in the ice. It's already making me drool...picturing those giant bills and Buffys bombing in from nowhere...goldeneyes whistling overhead...I wish the duck season had 60 days of November!

Sorry. This season has been a long time coming. I'll see what I can come up with.

I hunted this semi-dried up pothole this morning. I found it just driving by a WMA and seeing ducks land back there. I figured it might be decent because it was a hike back in there and maybe the ducks had found it after getting blasted off the bigger waters on opener. Well, nobody had hunted it, but it didn't matter. I didn't see a single duck all morning. I've had slow days but I don't think I've ever gone out and not seen atleast a handfull of ducks ever. I'm supposed to be in one of the better waterfowl hunting parts of the state too.

Next week thursday I'm thinking about hitting this pond up. THere is a trail that goes right back too it so it will be easy to hunt, so I doubt there will be anyone out there during the week, but I'm sure it gets hammered on weekends since its so easy to get too.

Here is part of my spread shortly after the sun came up on opener. Carried in 14 mallards an 6 goose floaters. Ended up with 3 geese and only two BWT due to my poor shooting.

Making a drink with a duck foot sounds like an excellent way to get a parasite. :no:. I'll post some pics of my spot tomorrow, should be a good day to hunt with rain and lower temps.

I have not seen any ducks out there, but I really haven't been seeing a whole lot of ducks anywhere and that was the first time I've actually checked on the pond outside of aerial photos. Things should get better tho. I believe. It will happen.

Nice work on the lanyard! :thumbsup:

I also detest long lanyards... For years I would only use the old Primos lanyards, as they were a good length and I didn't feel like I had to reach for a call.

I now have a Bolen(sp) lanyard that isn't too bad, but I keep thinking about it, so it is clearly not perfect...
