OK Fella's Finally got some pics of my Hunting Trip!!

Postby ACEBLDRS » Tue Oct 18, 2005 9:26 pm

Here I am all loaded up and ready to go. :getdown: I spent all day and part of the night before getting everything loaded up and ready to go.

Image

I still can’t believe I fit all of this crap into my truck. :eek: Notice the platform I built in order to carry more stuff. It is kind of crazy that I packed all of this camping and hunting gear to drive almost 6 hours, stay 3 nights and we took home 17 ducks! :mrgreen:

Image

This is a shot of what the refuge looked like that we were hunting at.

Image

Image

More scenery, this is one of 2 barns next to our camp site, I love looking at these old barns up against the beautiful back drop.

Image

This is a pic of my hunting buddy Jake, we had just returned from our Friday morning scouting trip. In this pic Jake is a little shaken up, he was riding his bike on a levee and ran into a hole that he did not see. He ended up going ass over appetite and phudged up his shoulder and his knee. (Side note he went to the doc yesterday for that). I told him we should medicate as soon as possible. :salude:

Image

Pic of Me and the Dawgs after Friday morning scouting.

Image

A nice pic of camp. After our Friday morning scouting trip we set up this nice little home away form home. We dubbed it camp Gadwall after seeing so many on our scouting trip. But soon after the shooting started on Sat. We quickly changed the name to camp GREEN HEAD!!

Image

This is a pic of my Refuge Hunting Transportation (RHT). I can carry way to much crap and get there in plenty of time.

Image

Finally the reason we made the trip. The tailgate pic. If I remember correctly there is 12 ducks there. 8 Mallards, 1 Bull Sprig, 1 Gadwall and 2 Green wing Teal.
Image
One of them Green Heads had some Bling on him. And of course Jake smoked him.
This was his first Band out of many years of hunting. Begrudgingly I was stoked for him.
Image


Last but not least one dang tired DAWG, ACE!!

Image

I didn’t get as many pics as I wanted to. I really wanted to get a pic of our little pond that we were in. We had a very nice layout, I believe we had around 6 ½ doz. Dekes out with a few Canada floaters. When I went to take pics the camera lens fogged over from the cold weather.

This was our second year in a row that Jake and I were able to make the trip up to hunt the North Eastern California opener. It is becoming a great tradition that I hope we will be able to carry on for years to come.

Hey I love the RHT just wondering did you build it your self or did you buy it I think something like that would be great for where I live we bike 70% of the way to our spot and when I go hunting I don't like to leave anything behind.
thanks to the men and woman of the United States Coast Guard- without them I would not be here.

Looks like you had lots of fun. It was better to have and not need it then to not have it. I just like to be a long with you. That is what hunting is all about getting the ducks and having fun doing it.

What's the point of going hunting/camping if you can't take 3 times more stuff than you will ever need. The packing and planning is almost as much fun as the trip. :thumbsup: Looks like y'all had a blast. :salude:
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

Drops, the refuge is Ash Creek, it is by the town of bieber, if you look on a map you probably can’t find it. It is off of 299 about 45 miles east of Burny.

AK, I built everything on there except the sled with the dekes in it. The cart itself is just a 2x frame with wheelbarrow tires. A couple of eye screws and you can bungy down the sled. The bars that attach to my bike are ¾ electrical conduit. They were bent into the shape that I needed. The bend to get up to my bike was very long and thought out. If you would like a better look at it let me know and I will post up some pics of the setup. It took me a long time to finally figure out how to hook it to my bike.

Guys I like to think that when i go on a trip that I am prepaired for anything , Loaded for Bear if you will. But I do have to admit, the porta potty was not my doing. That is provided by California DF&G.

you guys saw the clampit wagon where in the hell would i have fit that thing. :toofunny:
