This year was looking good...until my wife started masters classes every other Saturday, which leave no one to watch the kids while I'm gone. Just venting here, but Im feeling pretty frustrated since we are about 3-4 weeks away from hard freeze. After that its over. Ive gotten a few small trips in, but havent done particullary well so far.
Im just venting. I cant wait till the kids are old enough to take with me, then this wont be an issue!
On a side note, the migration is starting. We are seeing large flocks of widgeon and bluebills, plus oddball things like scoters on the lake I hunt. Starting to see a few lessers in flocks around town, and a few tundra swans are starting to show as well. They are on their way boys!
Sorry about the canceled trip...
But that last part is some of the best news I have heard all week (even though that is a different flyway)!
My hunting group had to cancel our trip to the Dakotas for the last two years due to work and other things as well. I know how you feel... it sucks.
There are only two types of people in the world, those who love duck hunting and those who never have duck hunted.
