98 ramtough, Thanks for the reply. Been getting a daily report from Troy Taylor and it sounds good. Weather looks good for the weekend.

A buddy of mine hunted the crab creek area( between Quincy and Moses Lake) last weekend and had success. If Troy is from there, he would know where to go. There are lot of private pockets that branch out from the creek. Ducks will suck to them because the water is calm and it provides a wind break being surrounded by tall cattails.
It's hard to pull 1 inch through 6 inches of material while doing "the dance", and looking skyward.

decoydog, Thanks for the reply and the heads up. Troy is a call maker out of the area. Alot of us use his calls down here. We're going for honkers in the morning and focus on the ducks late afternoons.
Again thanks for the reply

Never been to crab creek, is it waded? Can you retrieve without a dog?

Too risky to attempt by foot, you need at least a canoe. And I always take the dog, cuz I want my cripples back.

lillusk3, you're right, we had a great time and Troy was a blast, before, during, and after the hunting. Mostly Lessers on Sat. and mostly Greaters on Sunday. We're trying to get back up at least 1 more time this year. We'll see. Here's a pic of 1 of the days, me on the left and a buddy on the right
