Walking across a slough near the river with my friends, I was about 5 yards further out that they were and I take a step and fall straight down in waders. Water was over my head they hurried and pulled me up. Day after I got an iPhone. It didnt seem to work after that..

I shot a banded green wing teal one handed this year, while i was unbuckling my waders to take a leak!

Few years ago I also shot a lone goose standing on the ice about 60yds with a 36in barrel'd single shot 12ga using T shot! :yes:

last year, hunting with my dad and 2 brothers a group of 5 geese come in, all 5 shot and killed. 3 of them are banded! and my band was 13 years old! :bow:

5 geese come in to our decoys and are circling around but never commited to land. so finnaly we decided to shoot them before they flared off. 3 guys, 3 shots each, 5 unwounded geese live happily ever after. :mad:

i had shot 4 ducks already and my older brother hadnt shot anything. so i said that i would take him over to a slough and see if we cant jump some ducks. so we get there, and 2 Barrow's goldeneyes jump out of the slough. my brother shoots 3 times and misses, and then i shoot twice and drop both of them :smile: i got the drake mounted. good way to finish off a limit of ducks

last november me and a cople buddies planned a trip on the saginaw bay in michigan, but when the day came the wind was blowing 35+ mph with sleet and hail comming down, but we decided to go anyways. the water was up almost 4 feet above average and there were 2 foot white caps rollin in. we hunkered down on the back side of a point to get out of the weather best we could. we only had about 1 hour of light to hunt. it was one of the best days of huntin we had all year. we had aroud 15 duck come in in pairs and triples. we only go one though thanks to our great shootin skills. :lol3: we also had 3 geese lock up into our puddle duck spread and we dropped 2 of those. 5 min after hours we had about 100 geese circling the hole we were hunting while we were picking up deeks. in 1 hour of hunting we had 2 geese and a duck and should of had a full limit of ducks if we coulda hit em.

Was hunting my dad and our friend, and it was my dogs first hunt. after we had about 6 wigeon a tightly packed group of teal flew past at about 20 yards. Me and our friend each shot once and we got 9 teal. My dog was going nuts and got a few that had only broken wings that we would have never found without him.

one day in Jan we got into a flock of geese along the Rappahanock river in VA. After killing a few, our friends retriever went off into the woods looking for a bird who glided off into the woods, and his owner, our buddy Joe, followed him. So there out looking for the bird, and another flock comes rolling up. me and my dad tighten up, and I bring em in with soft feeding calls and moans. My dad jumps the gun and starts shooting, and the birds pick back up. I whacked the lead bird and then realized I hadnt reloaded since the last group! my bird lands in the rapids and starts rolling on down the river. I take off after it (no waders on) and end up to my chest in ice cold water! I chased it to the very last rapid (theres a huge deep pool below it) and caught the bird by a tailfeather! i was freezing the rest of the hunt, but i got my bird!

Hunting with two other guys. Group of gaddies came in and we dropped 2 and sailed one. "Phil" went out to grab all three, including the sailed bird.
When he had his back to us and was a ways out, we took every single duck we had on the strap at that point (about 4 or 5), threw em out in front of us in the spread, and let a volley of shots go.
"Phil"came back and was ordered to get the other birds out in the spread, to which he was pumped we had shot so well.
Upon re-entering the blind he realized what had unfolded.
Priceless.

Hunted with my brother and friend on wednesday before school ( I could hunt about an hour before I had to leave but I had 3rd pick for MO's quick draw system so we went!) at shooting time I shot a double with my first 3 shots and ran out to grab them and when I get to them a green wing dive bombs me and I busted him and Had 3 ducks already in less than 3 minutes of shooting time!

I ended up getting 4 in less than an hour of hunting and my brother and friend pulled out 9 more ducks after I left!

I was out with my friend and his dad one day. We weren't having much action that day it was 10:00 am and we had bagged a hen mallard and that's it. I looked out and saw a huge flock of what I thought were black birds. They were swooping and soaring like black birds and all the sudden my friends dad said those are ducks! We started calling and they were working and three broke away and me and my friend both got one. It turns out that it was a flock of about forty greenwings and I got mine mounted. That's all we got the rest of the day.
