Post season expectations

Postby okduckdude » Tue Jan 28, 2014 6:25 pm

Now that the season is over and we all are equally depressed (except for those hardcore goose hunters that I used to be) how many of you all have projects your wanting to work on for next year? What things do you want to improve on or what gear are you looking to acquire for next season?

As for myself I am looking forward to turkey season and some bow fishing. I need to get my big boat ready as well but its too cold just yet. I plan on changing from my pop up blind to a fixed position blind and put my mud motor on a lightweight hull so i can access areas from the bank. Then putting a 25hp outboard on the other boat. Thats the dream, the reality is I will be stuck with what I have which is ok too. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Gear to acquire for next season (hopefully)
25hp outboard (for the fixed blind boat)
1542 jon (lightweight for launching off the bank with the mud motor)
Floater goose decoys
Maybe momarsh invisablind chair and invisablind for the dog.
Arise, Kill, and Eat. Acts 10:13

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Philp. 4:13

I apologize to those I have yet to offend. Wait just a little longer and I will get around to you too!!

Chores: Pick up decoy bags in five spots at my place, clean, touch up paint and replace some weights, line and store. Pick up jerk rigs, take mojos, wonderducks and quiver butts home and store.

Project: My objective for wetland management is to experiment with an earlier drawdown (May) vs. July this year and supplement with millet again but add milo.

Gear for next year - iceeater for in front of blind with small generator.

Better get busy!!

Got a couple good deals from Cabelas recently, including 53% off a pair of 5mm 1600gram Cabelas waders. Right now is prime time to buy gear for next season.
First big thing I'm gonna get is a smaller enclosed trailer for field hunting, then a motorcycle for me to commute and scout, which will be transported in trailer. Then I will acquire a couple power hunters for other people to borrow and hopefully I will have enough left to put together a decent field spread of bigfoots, silos, and shells.

Get more access. Catch up on reloading. Possibly get a lay out blind (and dog blind?). Hunt more with some friends. I didn't get to hunt with a friend for the first time in around 7 years. Possibly invade sooner737's part of the state.

I do have a dozen feeder silos w/ flocked heads I have no use for if you want em.

1) strip & re deck the old flat bottom
2) get a decent long tail
3) add a dozen g&h GWT and maybe another dozen mallards.

As for myself I am looking forward to turkey season and some bow fishing.


And now that you mention it, I need to fab a bow fishing deck and get some lights.
Won't be long till the carp will be spawning, The morels will be comin up, and more importantly the stripers will be gorging themselves on shad and hopefully my x-raps. :grooving:

Dang Rob, why don't you throw the Hogeye marathon over here in Fayetteville in the mix too? Did you do the Route 66 in Tulsa in November? Just kidding on the Hogeye!

And I thought my off season goal of training on my bicycle (Cannondale Road bike) and doing a 100 mile 'century ride' in September in Little Rock (i.e. Big Dam Ride) was tough...

Well I only waited 2 days to pick up all my decoy bags (5), mojos, Wonderducks, jerk rigs and pick up empty shells around blind. Next step - clean and make repairs.
Got up 18 gadwalls and 4 mallards.
Until next November.

Route 66 in Tulsa last year was my first marathon. I'm training now for OKC in April. Hopefully I can run a 50 mile trail run next February at Texoma. Ltmfh, you are my hero with all those marathons you are running. Has the weather affected your running this winter?

Congrats on your Route 66. A friend told me that was one COLD race. I also will be in OKC in April. I have a 4 mile today and a 4 mile speed workout tomorrow. That will make 188.5 miles in January. The cold has not effected me except I have a few more miles on the Dreadmill than normal.

I am Jealous man. I didn't realize how much running meant to me until The last 7-8 weeks when I have had to take a break due to a back?sciatic nerve injury. It has made me crave it even more. I had just started my warm up to begin training for OKC this spring. Now that isn't going to happen for sure.

Good Luck man. I am a marathoner as well and have respect for anybody that has ever taken one on. It is a test like none other.

I am sure duckman can attest to what I am saying first hand but I went up there to watch my girlfriend run the 1/2 and I was hanging out by the finish line. Guys were crossing and literally had ice in their hair on the back of their head from sweat. I mean I have seen stuff like that from guys working in snow and what not...but to see ice hanging in hair and beards was wild.

Got started early on my teal decoys.
Stopped at academy to shop around on locators for my kayak, saw 25% off on decoys.
Picked up 2 half dozen boxes of GWT dekes for $20 a box. Going to check next week to see if they have some more left, may get another dozen BWT.

We had a lease (955 acre island) on the Navigation Channel for several years. While it was fun (initially) with all the prep work to build water retention devices, etc. we soon realized that in the eastern half of Oklahoma, with all of the public waters, all you really need is a boat...to go find and kill the birds and not fuss and worry with trying to make them come to you.

Western part of the state...'nother story.
