Grandson having fun this season

Postby Irish Lad » Sun Dec 02, 2012 1:46 pm

Been pretty slow so far down here in Southern Utah, but my grandson has had a blast getting new species for him. He enjoys ID'ing the Ducks. His pup is having fun too and doing well :thumbsup:

To me that right there is what duck hunting is all about. Congrats on all those firsts. Love taking my 4 year old out and teaching him the art of waterfowl even if we do only get one. :clapping:

Smart kid. Getting one duck is infinitely better than not going hunting at all. Some hunters seem to not get that.

He's doing well out there :thumbsup: I am surprised its not icing up yet. Too bad there will be no water in it for him to hunt it for the next few years until the next big winter :sad:

He added Green Wing Teal yesterday :smile: . He was greatly pleased that he got 2 of those rockets. He got muddy and tired, but he said it was worth it :thumbsup: .

S. Utah is better than northern... with less idiots and more ethical people too. Maybe I should head down there. :huh:

Not even close. See the dike they are on........Let’s just say it’s like center dike at farmington. The birds pass over it and most day's it don't seem to matter how high they are for a lot of the guys I have seen hunting from it.

Irish lad I am in no way implying that is what your grandson is doing. I have just seen a lot of it from the dike on there.

No offense taken. There is a lot less waterfowlers down here (less birds too :sad: ). I would venture a guess that percentage wise ethical vs unethical hunters is the same more or less. The dike you see does seem to attract a lot of skyscrapers & late shooters. We only hunted it youth day. We park there and hike about 1/4 mile. The skyscrapers can frustrate us. I take the pictures when we get back to the truck.
