How many of you guys keep journals of your hunts. Who where when. Who shot wat how many hen/drakes.

I just started beging of early goose last year. Little about weather little notes about the hunt like sobodys first duck or awsome shot small stuff like that.

I used to keep one religiously when I was younger, but I think I had one really bad season where I got skunked a million times in a row, so I kinda got too depressed to keep up with it. I keep telling myself to start back up again but I always forget.
Nobody cares about your season totals.

I just started a spreadsheet to keep track. It'll be nice to look back next year and see how many ducks I shot, what the weather was like, etc.

I also try to keep track of how many rounds I've put through my guns in a spreadsheet.

I'm kicking myself now for not maintaining a nice journal of all my hunts. I wrote down all of my birds/hunts last year and was happy that I did. It's very fun to look back when the season is over and remember all of the shots and stories.

Same as MN Dan, my earliest years weren't full of success stories so I didn't want a record of them....lol

One of my hunting buddies has been putting all of his hunts into the DU app and he has total ducks, specie counts, location, weather, who was there, and personal notes. It does a nice job.

I like the rounds idea so far this year I've shot. 410, 20g, 12g, 10g. Like to get my hands on a 16g and 28 this year

Kept a log for many years and stop doing it when I wasn't worried about numbers anymore. I still keep a short log about weather, birds(yes/nno) and a few other things mixed inside a notebook I keep in the center counsel of my truck and throw it in the gun safe at the end of the year. I did start using the DU app on the iPhone this year just to check it out and it works great. As soon as my kids start going more I will definitly be using a journal.

I've kept a journal since I started hunting. I was encouraged to do so by my uncle who did the same.
