Great pics Hillbilly.

Currently working on a little facial hair myself. Work prohibits more than a mustache. Been off for 10 days and don't return for 22 more days. Another week and the itch factor should go away.

The oooooole throw back pic thread.

Man I was lookin for some old pics to post and man it got me waaaaaaay to nostalgic. Kinda happy and kinda sad.

This was way back when, 07 I think, maybe 08. Back when I still had a nice jaw line. Man I look at me and my dog, we were both so young back then, ready to bum rush the whole world. Me and ole Woodrow got to grow up together, and now while I've stayed reasonably young, he's had to grow old on his own. sh!t hurts my heart. Now I'm all sad, damn hillbilly this is all you're fault lol

:lol: Awesome! It's hard to get the grouse to decoy on the water, and the locals get chapped if you hunt on a roost pond....generally, you can do well with about 2 dozen field deeks set into smaller family groups... :yes:

This was a nice combination hunt up in northern MN a few years back...ducks in the AM, then start grouse hunting about 10 AM....

I've never used more than a pair of drummer decoys myself.

On a serious note they love food plots when the growth is just emerging. Shot a grouse and deer 10 minutes apart a few years back my first and only year hunting deer with a rifle.

The drummers you have to keep out on the edges and elevated on a log...the decoys with the symbols at the center...the flute and clarinet ones are usually best if sitting in chairs....=P
