How'd everyone do? I was in my booth at work this morning and happened to look at the clock just as it turned to 6:38. I wish I hadn't noticed because all day since I've been thinking that I could be sitting in a swamp somewhere killin ducks. Monday can't come soon enough.

WOW CLUTCH sorry to hear that you had to work on the opener, that sucks!!!! :pissed:

The o’l quacker stacker, boy and I went out in the AM. Over to the swamps he bought, (man his wife spoils him) anyway the birds did their part, Max his part and we did out part.

Quacker stacker had an interesting morning first he had one of his Kent shells explode in the chamber. The whole side split open, he and the boy had to take his barrel off to get the wad out of it, I mean it was really stuck in there, what a pain that was for them.

Of course during this whole time those two were working on his gun I had the job of killing the ducks when they came in. (it was a dirty job, but someone had to do it). :yes:

Then when he thinks it’s ok too start hunting I shoot a black duck and all most hit him with it, he had to duck from my duck, he about fell on his butt over that. :eek:

Other than that it was your basic opener. He does have a ton of ducks over there. The sky was full for quite some time this morning. :cool:

Just got back from my out west trip........Ouch, my shoulder still hurts........LOL......The final tally was 75 ducks ( Bw/Gw teal, Gadwalls, Mallards, Blue...eeerrr BroadBills, Ringnecks, Cans, Shovelers) and 9 Geese( 3 Snows and 6 Giant Honkers) for three guys. 5 days of shooting. The temps were real warm and the hunting was tough. We managed to scratch out a limit everyday, but the birds were a little spooked. The daily Bag limit was only 5 ducks and 3 Canadas a man. Now get this one......You could only shoot 1 Hen Mallard OR a Pintail OR a Canvasback....Kinda tricky because the birds aren't really colored out yet.
We got to our hunting sport the thursday befor the season opened and scouted for 2 days. We had a field that about 5 K mallards plus Cacklers and a truck load of snows were using. Openeing day came and the birds were gone! Uuugh! Off to the slews to get our birds. The worst part about the trip was that my dog got sick right before we left and I had to leave him home. He's better now and will be primed to go on the 21st opener. Good luck on the NY season boys.........

Thats it no more stories and NO PICS. You guys insist on toying with me bragging about how your season is already open then dont even satisfy me with a simple pic. :laughing:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

We managed 8 all weekend, 7 of them were on Saturday. But when we were walking through some thick stuff looking for a spot for the next day, a hen mallard started quacking and my dog took off and when she got back she had a banded hen mallard!

You have got to be kidding me, you got a banded duck that you didnt even have to shoot. :toofunny: That beats all, this will be year 14 and still no banded birds. :pissed:

Nice job there 870. Is that what they call shooting ducks in a barrel or a bushel and a peck? :toofunny: Looks like you had a good time, well done.

My wife tells me to bring something home for dinner when I go hunting. So I make sure to stop at Wegmans before I go.

Jeez 870, you always find a way to kill ducks :salude: ! I didnt have a "good weekend" it started out with a case of "stealing" that almost lead to some "pellets to their boat". Yah thats right, someone took my blind. They were there since 3 and had 4-5 dozen blocks out :eek: so i couldnt do a thing.

Did you build it on public land? Did they have a legal right to be there? If not I would have been on the phone with the warden real fast. That sucks! I would be pissed too. Sorry to hear about the dirtbags.

Yah, it was state land. It was on the high water line. I went scouting there every day for the pst week and a half. It was in a nice little cove where woodys and mallards have been landing. The sucky part was that they spooked more ducks with their calling thatn they had commit. I didnt even know i could kick them out. :pissed:

I have some goose wings and may have some duck wings after this weekend if the southern opener treats me better than the norhtern :oops:

I'm in Syracuse so it may be farther than you want to drive. Let me know.
