O.K., here are the ground rules...

1. Contact the guy that is to have the deek before you to make mailing arrangements and send him your address. The deek will be shipped out on Mondays, received by the next guy in line on prob. thursday to give him time to hunt over the deek on the weekend (with the exception of Jaysweet on his Canada trip-Papachessie will mail it out so he has it for the 19th ). Please try to ship it out before 10 am and keep in touch with the next guy in line to work things out between each other. It's up to you if you want to overnight the deek. some have offered to do this for when the deek is traveling some distance, and around the holidays to ensure the deek gets there in time.

2. Try and schedule a hunt with fellow DHC members in your area so that more people can hunt over the deek. You do not have to take them to your #1 honey hole if you do not want to. pick a public marsh if possible and have fun with it.

3. A journal will be sent around with the deek. write down a story about the hunt with the deek. The deek will be mailed back to Dave @ Church decoys at the end of the season. We can vote on if we want to send the journal with it or not.

4. Take plenty of pics.!! We want to see the landscape the deek is hunted in so let's see it floating in your spread (or in the filed for you goose hunters.. :biggrin: ) We expect a post on this thread about your hunt and we want a tally of birds. Please put this at the top of your post so we can add it up as we go.

5. A paint pen will be provided with the deek so everyone that hunts with the deek can sign the bottom of the deek-please don't loose it. WRITE SMALL!! a lot of people need to sign the deek, try to take up as little room as possible. Thanks!

4. As most of you know, I had a mojo bag made up by the Voodoo Lady. The bag will be sealed with a zip-tie. DO NOT OPEN THE BAG! The instructions will be included in the box with the deek-written on the first page of the journal, follow them and keep the mojo going.

5. A box is included with the deek for tokens from the hunt. Throw in something memorable from the hunt and unique to your state. Please do not put full wings or any parts of the flesh from birds in the box, it will start to stink bad! Feathers are fine, if that is what you want to add. Just find something unique if you can... :thumbsup:

6. Have fun! Here's to a memorable season, and Full straps...now lets go bust some caps!! :thumbsup:

I'm good on our split either way (I live on the split line) to glue the deke to the Plond. This year Plond is North Zone, used to be South. And I'm still good for Oct 29/30 or Dec 31/Jan1. Deke might get a field hunt in later December though - just depends on ice.

Duck
The duck hunting season in the North Zone is October 15-30, followed by a second segment that opens November 19 through January 1. In the South Zone, duck season is open October 22 through November 6, followed by a second segment that opens December 17 and runs through January 29, 2012.

Goose
The goose season for the remainder of the North Zone is October 15 through October 30, with a second segment that runs from November 19 through January 1, 2012 and a third segment from January 9-22, 2012. In the South Zone, goose season is October 22 through November 20 followed by a second segment that opens December 17 and runs through January 29, 2012.

Yes, I could have done the same thing. But it wasn't official yet so I didn't post. I'm glad you are so on top of things. You aren't the only one that can see a pattern. :thumbsup:

O.K. guys...the deek and the mojo along with all the other goodies are packed up and on their way to Blackcloud this morning. :thumbsup: I was waiting to mail it off because I had a lady lined up to make a journal out of alligator hide, but it is not finished in time so I bought a leather journal and sent that with the deek.
BTW- the instructions for the mojo bag are on the first page of the journal. :thumbsup:

Blackcloud will be hunting the deek Sept. 1st.....Let's start this season off with a bang! :yes: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

...Also, the trinket box is small...maybe 5" x 5" x 5" so the items will have to be small unless someone can get a bigger box to mail the rambler around in.

That sounds like a UPS shipment for sure unless buying tracking and delivery confirmation from USPS and even then...our carriers don't get out of their little jeeps unless it's on fire.
