A little slice of Heaven

Well I just got back from another week in Saskatchewan, and finally put the pictures on my photobucket account. I thought I would share some of them and show what hunting is like in Heaven.

Moon coming up

A few sandhill cranes....they decoy well, are a hell of alot of fun to shoot, and taste great!

A nice pintail

Out there you can only shoot geese until noon, starting on 10/15 it goes to all day.....so game on for the white devil in the evening. The worst part is they did not start to come out to feed until about 1 hour left in shooting time (1/2 hour after sunset, vs. sunset here) It got pretty fast and furious for 45 minutes.

Image

All of the duck shooting is done over dry fields....mostly peas with some barley. It is a trip to have 300 mallards trying to land in your layout blind.

Image

Next to last morning, 39 mallards and a pintail in 1 hour :eek: When we scouted this field there were groups of up to 300 birds coming in at 30 second intervals for a full half an hour.

Image

My best friend and I flew out together and there were a few other guys from Wisconsin in camp. Next to last day, fat greenies.

Image

And finally, the last morning before we had to get on the plane. Just the 2 of us for a quick shoot.

I am totally impressed. I have only been duck hunting for 3 seasons now, am a total novice and have never even dreamed of bagging that many ducks in a day - just WOW!
