Now that I'm thinking about it, it was probably one of these days.

I think the best day was Vince's band. He's been hunting for a long time, it was his time that day and it was long overdue.

Been going through some duck depression, sweet pics fellas. Don, I enjoyed your band shots, glad Vince got a band, sounds like he was due for one! One of my favorite moments this year was our buddy who just started hunting ducks, getting him his first band.

The last two duck pics are from out at school at Penn State. Just started duck hunting 1 year ago so still very new and inexperienced. Just couldn't locate ducks this year with limited time I had to scout and hunt, not to mention I was pretty much winging it. The first 2 pics of geese are from back home (Allentown Area). We do very well back home especially later in the season. Tried a little goose hunting this year at school but couldn't find anyone who was interested in going and it's no fun hunting by yourself. Got permission to hunt 1 field and turned down on a bunch more. Hunted the field 2 times but just wasn't where geese wanted to be. I picked up 5 dozen silo's this year so hopefully I can get some permission to walk in field's and hunt. Although goose number's are no where near back home, I still love getting out and taking a break from school : )

By the way if anyone wants to get together for a hunt PM me. I'd be pumped for someone to join me. As far as geese goes, I've got 6 dozen decoys, and pair of layouts. I'll be doing a lot more scouting this year so I should have at least one decent spot. As far as duck, well like I said I'm only a beginner so I only have 6 mallards and 6 blacks.
