Wasn't planning to hunt today. I was curious as to what
the weather may have brought in so I took a drive.
I saw a bunch of birds sitting on a piece of open water
near the river, which was slushed up. I decided to grab
my gun and Rockhead and jump shoot em for one last
hoorah. Well, we didn't even get close before they spooked.
As I watched them and realized that was about the only
piece of open water around, they started coming back already.
I decided to grab my gear and set up. All my rubber ducks were
frozen together from being left in my rig. I managed to get
six of them and my swimmin' ducks set up. I dropped my Mojo
in the water and that ceased to work along with my fingers.
I was where the birds wanted to be, that's all that mattered.
I was cold and sick as hell, so I didn't pay attention to which way the birds were facing
Took better pics when I got home
My first Montana Pintail!
Rocki did awesome
She struggled with the goose, didn't quite know what to make of it or how to grab it. She did real
well all day! If I could just get her to be like that in a group with other dogs...
Great way to end the season!
