he was not waiting on me. We had an older gentleman of 67 yrs. follow us and he had 3 stops to make...once for ice, then to stop at a corner store for a sausage biscuit and coffee, then at wally world to pick up some last minute groceries....he forgot the pork chops that he and bayouboy ate saturday night while my brother and I attended a Christmas party. If you read up thread a little-I was up at 3:15 and got on DHC to kill time before leaving at 4 am to go to the camp. :hi: Out of respect for my elders, I didn't say anything to him about running late...it's that southern thing... :hi:

Its pretty cool watching that deke I held go all over the country.

Keep up the good work guys.

I know you are just trying to bust balls...but the BBQ pit isn't ours- It belongs to some guys in another camp that we are friends with. Since we have a large deck on our camp-our friends come over to our camp to eat and chill out at night. we cooked steaks one night and they left their pit for the coals to burn down, then they forgot about it....

never been around flooded corn inda, but it seems to me it would be a pain in the ass to hunt in.

Does the flooded corn even drop ears by the time season is around? I know it will hold for a while so i am curious.

If you ever see a mallard in a flooded corn field pull ears off the stalk-it is a sight to see...they hover like a hummingbird and grab the ears with their beaks to break them off. If they can't break it, they flap the hell out of it with their wings.

An it's not a pain in the *** to hunt from what I'm told... (Don't know first hand as I have never hunted it) just stand in the middle of it where they are going down in the field, put up a flapper and commence to whackin 'em... :fingerhead:

That BBQ sauce had some kick to it! :beer: Colt used it to help clean out his sinus's. :lol3: we did not get around to BBQ'd chicken, but will use it next time we do. I used some of it on an sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich though-pretty good. :thumbsup:

I enjoyed the sauce. Had a 2:1 ratio w/ ketchup and it warmed me up.

Nice hunt on Monday Keith. Same blind? I might be making a hunt down there tomorrow, will touch base w/ young if I do.

Possibly dropping that pintail off today.

What's the difference between flooded corn and flooded rice? The ducks I hunt late in the season are all full of corn from picked corn fields anyway. If you crawl around on your hands and knees in some of the picked fields, you'd be amazed at how much corn is left behind. I've seen 2,000 geese feed in the same field for a month straight.

the difference is that rice MUST be flooded in accordance with accepted agriculture practices. Corn is not. I have no problem when it is done in accordance with accepted agriculture practices, The problem with flooding corn verses hunting a harvested field is that when things lock up and freeze-the corn on the ground is inaccessable and this forces the birds to migrate south. when it is flooded standing corn, the ears are accessible after freeze up. BTW- it would not bother me to ban hunting rice either-it is bait IMO, even though it is being grown with the intention of harvesting. I am consistent in my positions Papa...

We had what would have been a super-duper pintail/mallard hybrid drake this morning - if the coyote's first grab for the swimming crip hadn't come up tailfeathers. Still had a broken 6" sprig hanging.

When I discovered I'd left my camera at home this morning, I flat knew I'd be sorry, just not how much so. Did take a couple shots with my old cell phone but couldn't even tell what was in the frame. Turned out I got most of what I wanted, but don't know how to get it from phone to computer and am hoping one of the guys will follow through on a promise to e-mail me a better I-phone pic.

I'm thinking next week will go how it goes, ie: I'm afraid to speculate. Had been a pretty good year, http://www.mypitblind.com/main/index.php/forum/339-rick-10-11, but you never know. Three of us had 18 and a speck both Sat and Sun, and four of us had 21 with 13 mallards and nothing to blame but us and the 9:30 marsh curfew for not having 24 with 16 mallards Mon - then Tues two gals and I killed 2, count 'em 2, before the gunning became more like we'd like for the rest of the week to date. Today we had a quick and pretty hunt, while a usually jam-up blind on the end of the marsh that should be best on this wind killed but 3. Just never know...
