Just a tease of what's in this years video. At one point I thought we were going to get them all to land. In the end captain America got his first speck. Actually it was all his first. He had never been duck hunting before. A new benelli later and he's hooked.

The thaw has been kind to us. Hopefully that trend continues. Our area hasn't ever had this many birds this early though. I wouldn't complain about having good success, but only being 2 weeks into season, I just am suspicious of our outlook. I think we'll get lousy with Canada Geese here before too long though.

The rain after the thaw friday didn't do much to help us. We have enough ducks, most of which are mallards, but they haven't settled back into a patter yet. Feeding all night doesn't do much to help either. Don't hate on spoonies possum. You like shooting them.

One of my favorite hunts ever, I only shot 4 spoonies but three were a three for three on public land in North Texas doing a solo hunt. Nothing like shooting 3 for 3 any day but when there aren't many birds in the area it is really an accomplishment. Not to mention spoonies are really pretty birds.

Being able to do it right on the tough days, can be much more rewarding than taking 20 shots to get your six. I agree those spoonies are cool looking birds.

I wish I had the money at the time to mount the pair that I got. Really satisfying. Looks like I will be hunting public quite a bit the second split. We will see how it goes.

i let everyone else shoot spoons.. just ain't my thing on a day that the birds are working.. i'm no purist, and if it is slow, i'll wipe that smile right off their face, but i just don't enjoy shooting them all that much.

I will confess, in a moment of weakness, I smoked a bull drake red breasted merganser yesterday.
In my defense, it was the last day of the season for my zone, and it was a pretty good shot :wink:
Never shot one before.
