Alright fella's, not long now and the teal time will be upon us. Sept 14-29th with a 6 teal limit. Already went and checked out a couple local spots and actually saw some birds. 9 black bellied tree ducks, 3 blue wings, and a random pintail. Ohh! Also a ol spoonie and in the surf with a bunch of gulls of all places, poor fella must have gotten left behind.

Yes sir! I did some work on some of our places sat and actually we acquired a new property while we were at it. It looks like a money hole! Can't wait for the birds to start showing up. Little less than a month and we will be busy brushing blinds! I'm getting more pumped up everyday!!!!

Yes sir! It is official on the tpwd website, last night we were wade fishing and I had two tree ducks come flying straight at me about 6' off the water. Needless to say, I pretended my fishing pole was a shotgun ;)

Ummm the turkeys that I have killed off of the end of a run way of a small airport in North Carolina would suggest different. It's just a county airport though and me and my padre were the only ones that permission to hunt it, awesome turkey and deer. I am hoping some of these tree ducks hang around after the season opens up, sure would look good on the wall.
