No unfortunately my time with the coot is done. Glad I could break the bad juju it had and hoping it brings the same luck it did to me.

I know it's a dead duck on the tailgate pic, but I wasn't there on this hunt/picture taking. Ol cooters last hunt results.

Get in touch with Podleau. He's down there in your area so you might get a chance to hunt it during the week. You won't have to ship it to him hopefully

Well like a NOT idiot, I took the stink off this stupid decoy - 10 pintail, 2 wigeon, 2 gadwall, 1 blue wing, 15 green wing. Pretty God **** great hunt! The sprigs were doing it in flocks of 30+ all morning. Put her on the jerk string - she dances like she’s saddling a pole … !!!

Like a COMPLETE idiot … I did’t bring a camera and the only picture I have is on someone else’s phone … I’m still waiting on them to send it too me and the picture doesn’t have the decoy in it.

Who’s next on the list and what’s their address? Depending on how long I need to ship it or drop it off, I can probably get another hunt out of her with pics.

Hard to belive because 75% of the people on here shoot dog **** ... ? Or hard to believe because 75% of the people on here can't scratch limits? Just curious - cause where we hunt, that's a pretty common mixed bag. :biggrin:

Sorry about butting in, but that brings up a dang good point...I've been cyber scouting for a couple months on this forum, and I'm amazed at the number of people that are excited to go thru all the BS just to kill a duck or two. "The Honey Hole" is more like a chat room for PETA supporters!!!

There are some in there that feel like we shouldn't go out and shoot limits...they wouldn't like hunting with me very much! If I set up in the morning, and the birds changed their minds about where they want to feed my fat azz is fixna pick up decoys, and change locations. Leaving the water a bird shy of a limit pizzes me off!

Again I apologize for butting in...I just had to get that out of my system.
