Pretty hairy.It was gusting Saturday morning up to 50. we crossed the channel and were met with 5.5 ft rollers. needless to say it was a quiet boat ride. set up on the mouth of a bay where we saw 150 + divers fri afternoon. ended up with 9 birds between the two of us, but it was snowing sideways. some of the shittiest stuff I`ve been out in, in years ( and they say your supposed to get smarter as you get older.35 and as dumb as ever. lmao).when the inside of the bay we were hunting froze over, the wind blew all that slushy stuff right into the decoys, and ruined our hunt. decoys flipped over, and bunched up on us. Sunday morning we were invited to join a friend of my buddies to shoot an island blind up near hastings. what a set up this guy had, but the birds didn`t fly real well. the guys`hunted it hard saturday though. still came away with 4 mallards,2 whistlers, and 4 geese, between my buddy and I. Nice old guy that hosted us didn`t really even shoot! Spent most of the morning picking up our birds with the boat. gonna try again this weekend and I think it will be the last. might be a bit challenging to find an open launch though. did you guys`hunt a field. should hit the luther one last time this weekend, I bet you you would slaughter em. They can get just about anything fly though there this time of year.I`m told even the odd canvasback!
