Saw lots of birds, shot birds, didn't get enough school work done and the weekend was too short. Used a GoPro for the first time, that was really a neat thing! :yes:

Thats my report. Were you looking for more? :hi:

Thanks, just anxious for the opener and since I didn't go east was hoping to hear how you-all did over there.

I've been looking at GoPro's myself, I'd love to see the footage if/when you get a chance to post it.

Go Beav's!

Might be something I'd have to show you in person...I dont anticipate posting any footage on line, like YouTube or anything. I'll edit it to make a short little movie at the end of the season, but mostly just for documenting the season beyond just pictures.

I'm in the same boat as Jonesy. I got back to Lewiston late last night and was up early for my Bio class this morning. We had a ton of fun, killed plenty of birds, and walked into the blind both mornings listening to a couple small Bulls bugling a few hundred yards away. 5 bands made it a pretty memorable weekend too! Here's a picture of the 3 from Sunday. I was busy cleaning ducks and chasing pheasants on Saturday and forgot to take any pictures. A few more days of class and we get another Opening Day all over again! :biggrin:

Unfortunately no. I borrowed this GoPro from a guy at work, and the mounts he had were definitely not intended for hunting or shooting purposes. I made it work for the most part. Mostly a learning experience w/ the video aspect, have plenty of mental notes for the future.

I'm thinking a head mount may be the best method while limiting the amount of camera jostling.

Thanks guys for the reports. A few more days till I get back in a blind. I went out last night to brush it up and saw a few mallards.

Jonsey, I'd love to see what you have on the GoPro, maybe over a beer or coke sometime.

Hunted Sunday and Monday on the CR. Killed 10 between the 3 of us. Was hoping for a better opener; we just didn't see that many flying. Here is the only pic I have from the trip.

AWE GEEZE! MUST WASH EYES WITH SALT WATER TO REMOVE LAST IMAGE FROM BRAIN! :biggrin:

Duck hunting in shorts just seems wrong to me for some reason.

Duck openor was slow but the goose season opener was good to us we killed quite a few boxes of shells but really didn't do all that well on the slaying part.ended up with 10 honkers for the weekend & 1 banded greenhead from ladd marsh.looking forward to the rain & all the spots new we've gained access to as well as the already hot spots we have. The locals aren't doin much so its just a matter of waitng for the migration to begin.
