We tried that last year even though we were told to make a J. It didn't work. Maybe we should just start at A and work our way through the alphabet this year.

Is there an x in every lake and if so what is it made of? Thanks.


I'm not sure if this is serious or a joke, but I laughed my butt off!

That must make sitting awkward.

There are only two types of people in the world, those who love duck hunting and those who never have duck hunted.

Might need to be said that the place where 10-50,000 canada geese roost in not the X.
Hunt the roost and they leave.
Just dont do it.
Hunt areas between the roost and where they go to feed. This requires scouting. You have to drive around and follow them to figure out whats what.
Orrr, you could shoot the roost/refuge once and be done for the season.
Your choice.
