Dang that's quite a compliment Randi
The birds could have been more cooperative but we did have a good time and Stogie/Carl was a great host. Sleepin in the RV beats the back of my pickup any day.
Speaking of educated birds, this blew my mind. After seeing nothing flying at all for a couple hours we decided to pull up stakes, get some breakfast and have a look around. We drive past one of the oxbow lakes out there and i see 50-75 ducks at the far end of the lake. We park the truck and put the sneak on them only to realize these ducks are sitting 10 ft inside the border of the no hunting zone.
It was unbelievable.
The other fun part of that lake was when we considered setting some deeks. I see the water is about 12 inches deep and wade in. I take two steps and promptly sink past my waist in some of the foulest mud I have encountered. Almost had to get pulled out of there.
Still it was a good time, met a new hunting buddy with a great quail dog. I'll give ya a call next time I'm heading that way Carl.
