limits across the board.

ON GEESE . Those Avery decoys did it again!!!! 12 geese on the graound by 9 am. Unbelievable. Birds everywhere. If the limits where 8 birds a person we could have done it by 10am easy. What a great way to end the season, especially with my dad.

By Local, I assume you mean Virginia state (VDGIF) game wardens, not Federal (USFWS)? The federal folks were out as well in that area, mayhaps a little north of there - I think it is called the Nansamond or something like that.. Consider yourself smart (everything in order) and somewhat lucky. There were many tickets written that day in that area, as well as GFM, and Chick river. The state made pretty good money Saturday.


Glad to here they were courteous and professional.

Big Shorty, They said they worked out of the Williamsburg Office so I assumed they were VDGIF. Never saw such a thorough check. Boat, bags, pockets, etc. I personally dont mind them checking, it's there Job and I like seeing them out there enforcing the regulations.

I get nervous when I have other hunter's in my boat, normally I politely ask everyone if they have their license, stamps, Plug and steel shot at the ramp before we go out but Saturday "AG" had some relatives along and I asked if everyone had the license but that was it. Great bunch of guy's and everybody was legal. :thumbsup:

I think they got a few boats for no running lights, it's about time. We have seen ALOT of boats running out there with no light at all. WE had a near miss in December with a duck boat that passed down the starboard side at about 20 feet going full throttle and not looking ahead. AG saw it and I managed to turn to port just in time and close enough to hear them say Oh S*^T. :pissed:

Dont ask, trust me it is good. Until you laugh so hard it comes out your nose.





PS One of the guys we hunt with mother-in-law made a cake using mayo instead of oil

Comes out your nose and sprays the side of the blind! We didn't need any brush after that custom camo job...works better than a camo compact on the face too!
