whats going on bro? we clear the path for you to pave....LOL

how's your season going? Real slow for me up here in the falls, didn't make it out once during early season and only once so far during late season. Where is arkwright? Been through most of the state, don't recall passing by there.

Armyguy, the season started slow and has picked up since. My crew has a total of 8 bands this year. That is a very high # usally 1 or 2 is more like it. Arkwright is 50 miles southwest of buffalo, near Cassadaga. Our family owns the Arkwright falls ( google it ). It's about 8 miles from Dunkirk. Oh yeah.........................thanks for responding I was alone for awhile


PM me next season & we'll hunt :yes:

sounds good quack

Postby armyguy » Mon Jan 07, 2008 4:27 pm

sounds like your having a great season,way to go :thumbsup: what are you hunting ponds or the lake? I have a nice piece of state land that is flooded timber that last year was awsome for early season. This year it froze up to quick :mad: I,d love to hit up the upper and lower rivers and lakes...just not set up for it yet. Bird total for this yr is still 0... Last year was my first yr out and we smashed the mallards and got a banded drake to boot. I work out between seneca and cayuga lakes and still trying to lock down some spots. It seems like you have to be born with hunting rights or in the blind itself...lol there pretty serious out there. At least we have the special late goose season so there,s still hope yet

No, I worked to get my feilds, ponds & honey holes. It took me many years. Athough yahoos still show up and try to hunt. Do your homework brother, ya gotta get out & scout. Don't be afraid to ask the farmers/ land owners. Remember the farmer dosen't always own the land. Maybe we can hook up next season, My crew is usally pretty full on opening days, but we'll see. Turn that 0 birds into a 1 at least :thumbsup:

Enjoy the rest of your season. We're whacking the he!! out of them out here in WA now that they decided to finally migrate south.

Cold

Postby SGM-DKHNTR » Thu Jan 10, 2008 11:53 am

You know, you gotta ask yourself just how much do you hate ducks to make you want to go out in that kind of cold to kill em. :hammer:

I just returned from a week of duck hunting in South Texas. 40's at night with upper 70's during the day. Now that's duck hunting! :thumbsup:

Once I get back home I'll just have to bundle up cuz I hate them to death. (Their death of course) :rofl:

Oh, and BTW Redneck, not to get into a mine's bigger then your's type of arguement, but it does gets that cold in Ithaca as well. It get's soo cold,,,,,,(HOW COLD DOES IT GET???), it's get's so cold my firing pin was froze so the shot never went off. When it's that cold you gotta keep your gun dry of oil. (true story)

I'm enjoying throwing the BS with yall (oops, been stationed in the south tooooo long, I meant "you all") :oops: .

Have a great day gang, talk at ya later.

Postby SGM-DKHNTR » Thu Jan 10, 2008 3:18 pm

Yeah, I'm back up in WA doing the cold hunting again, :rolleyes: but that 70 degree "Nancy" hunting was sweet. :thumbsup: We hammered em in S. Texas. :hammer: A mixed bad of Teal, Pintails, Gaddy's, Widgeons, Whistlers, Shovelers, one Ringneck, and one Mallard. I've never seen many Mallards down there. 56 total for the week between my buddies and I.

We saw thousands of snow and Speckle Belly (White Fronted)geese during that week. We also saw a lot of Sand Hill Cranes. Unfortunately everything was a mile high. They all use to roost at the lake we hunt, but those days are gone. You'd need a SAM (surface to air missile) to get at them now.

I take a good ribbing, no prob.

Talk atcha ya later
