I pretty sure this qualifies me as legally insane. I knew there was going to be some snow Fri morning, but my pops drove up from AR so we were hunting. We even stayed at a friends house just 4 miles from Eagle Bluffs headquarters. Went to bed about 1 am, after some sledding with only about 3-4 in of snow. Woke up at 3:30 with 16 in of snow. Cleaned off the snow woke everyone up and hit the road. Made it about .1 mi and 3 trucks were stuck in the road/ditch, not really sure which was which. Dug two of them out, the third was to far gone. Then the crazy old man drove up, just trying to get home. I told him three trucks had tried and not made it. He said, "I going home." Hit the hill doing at least 65, balls to the wall, did a 360, came back, tried again, wide open and made it. If he can do it so can we. I went back to house to grab everyone else and our gear. By the time we made it, around 9:00, there were about 4 parties alreay there in pools 3, 5, and 12(2). We treked out to 10, but the water was slushed up, we couldn't do anything to make a whole only a big mess. We went back to the truck and on our way out, about 1030, the guys at 5 mid had limited out (16 greenheads, 1 awesome drake canvasback). Me, Dad, and one friend decided to try it, but it was already iced up. We did open up a pretty good hole, but only 2 ducks came in and we missed em. 1000's of ducks flying from refugee somewhere to the north. A great experience that I am sure I won't soon forget. Time to break out the chainsaw for the ice. May be trying out Grand Pass some this week. GL to all.
