I was talking with the one other old timer on our trip. I think it was on the fifth time setting up the snow spread. I said we need some new young guys to do the heavy lifting. He looked me right in the eye and said, "Why do you think you're here?" I knew I was the pack mule. It just wasn't spoken about. Guess I brought it up.

Gonna kill em all next year.

thought ya'll had some teal in there too...

Ate em along with a bunch of canadas a speck or two and a bunch of mallards. Image


Today we had a speck and some Huns for lunch.

Sounds like a great time regardless of the number of kills. I'm jealous of you. It's all about the experience and fellowship.

Thanks for the kind words. It was a bunch of fun. I'll be back next year. The rub of it is, the birds just weren't here yet. The last two days have been nasty cold rain and wind out of the north. Every bird in the tundra, is going to make its migration in the next couple days.

What are needing? I've been to both, long time since I've been to the one in Dundee. I'm in the one in Columbus all the time time though.

Alright alright Jay. I will invite myself, Woody/Titz, and the Ohia gang, on your hunt to do the heavy lifting next year. You guys game? I'm dead serious. :wink:

It's not going to be long before I take over this hunt. It started out with five guys that went to high school together. They are all in their mid 70s three have dropped out. Either moved to Florida for the winter, or just can't do it anymore. The last two fellas are in fantastic shape, and work pretty hard up here. They do take it easy setting up the big spread, but they will go through the cattails looking for a cripple.

Seven years ago ,they were down to three. They brought myself and another fella in on the trip. I jumped at the chance.

The first couple years, they had all their own spots, but the birds have changed. It's a different pattern. We do a lot of scouting and talking with the locals. My job has become, a scouter and the guy who asks permission. Mostly, because I don't like to sit on someone's property without permission. They will do that.

So I take it upping myself to find the land owner and ask. 90% we get in. On average we get turned down once a year. Half the time, you stop at someone's farm to ask, you get roped into a 45 minute conversation about whatever. There are the nicest people up here.

I hope Frank and Norman can do it for another 10 years. Time will tell. But when they do say they are done, I'm finding a group that wants to do it every year. It would be to hard to train someone each trip.
