I know i'm a little late writing in but better late than never right. just thought i'd brag on Mike and one of his guides Chris. It started on Friday with Mike calling me and saying we needed to cancel our hotel reservations that Reelfoot was going to freeze and he had another place we would kill birds. so we did and boy i'm telling you we saw more ducks and had opportunities to kill ducks like you've never seen. We hunted a local WMA in Martin TN. Sat morning we killed 5 mallards, 4 greenies and 1 susie. we had some that came in a left unhurt due to lack of being able to hit them back flapping over the decoys. Saturday was 20 degrees with about a 25 mile an hour wind. Sunday we killed 12 birds. Mallards, widgeon, and gadwal. our taxidermy bill just got a little out of hand. I also killed one banded drake mallard!! he is beautiful bird and will make a great looking mount.
Mike is a great guy and will do anything to make sure you have the opportuntiy to kill ducks. since being back home i have spoken to mike several different times about going back next year. We had a great hunt and saw litterally THOUSANDS of birds mallards, pintails, widgeons, gadwal, black ducks, rignecks, teal.
Guys if you are ever interested in taking a trip to NW TN give Mike Newsome a call and will not be dissapointed. visit his website www.floodedtimber.com
Mike and Chris thanks for a great and memorable hunt!!
