Learned a duck hunting lesson the hard way. Even if a duck is upside down in the water, it is not necessarily dead. I dropped a bluebill in one of the salt ponds, but didn't feel like rowing to grab it right away. I figured that I'll get it in about 5 min. 5 min. later, I looked up and the duck had swam about a mile down past two other blinds. Never will I wait to grab a bird again.

Three ducks came flying through the fog right as i started to lift my gun up my dad dropped all three of them. I ducked and a big greenhead hit my hat of my head. The next duck came and hit me right in the leg. Then finally the third barley miss him. Knowing my luck the two ducks that hit me both had BANDS on them. Just my luck. . . . :mad:

You can wait for 6 hours straight without shooting anything, and when the chance comes you take it !
and oh yeah shoot them in the head works way better :hammer:

We shot a banded Drake Woody and he hit the water right in front of us and my dad blew his head off. We killed a woody last season and he hit a trees and splattered all over it. Killed another one that got stuck in the top of a tree. Killed a merganser and it dove and bit on to a limb under that water and never came back up. We've blown teal into multiple pieces.

sailed a greenhead and it dropped by these other hunters so we decided not to get it till they left. when they did my uncle went looking for it and came back with my first banded duck. the next day sailed a gadwall toward some hunters, they unloaded on it and i hear one kid yell " dad its not dead" the dad said "shoot it", "shoot it?" "SHOOT IT" BOOM!! " you missed you idiot" :lol3:

I was hunting youth weekend two years ago, my neighbor took me to a pretty large marsh, Dunhams bay in Lake George to be exact... anyway, we had a blast, woodies everywhere but i couldnt seem to dump one. before we laumched the canoe we noticed a couple in a canoe heading into the marsh, but we didnt woory to much cuz we were hunting near the front. anyway, it was about an hour or so before dark and we were just sitting here when we hear paddles bangin on the gunnel and loud voices, moments later a 14 foot aluminum with a small ( not intelligent) family of 4 closes in on the decoys, we the guy takin me said, shhhh! dont say a word.. :lol3: They all thought our spread of 16 flambeau mallards were real duckies so there like throw some bread, quick before the all take off, mammma give some of dem potata chips.... we were laughing so hard in our masks, well quietly so they wouldnt hear... they got halfway through the decoys and said.... wait a minute, these duckies dont seem to rite, try to pet one! hhahahha mommy give em bread shouted one... shut up, ul scare em shouted the dad, then we couldnt take it any longer, we had to say something hahhahahahh :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: that was the funniest thing that ever happen to me while duck hunting.... whats worse is the couple came about 20 min later and we had similar results hhahhaha :biggrin:

Day after christmas I met up with a guy and son and headed out to the marsh. The day started slow but about 45 minutes after shooting time it began....We were decoying every bird that we saw fly (or so it seemed), getting doubles and triples, one time the three of us knocked down 5 or 6 out of one flock. Well of course, we get on that sails on us. Myself with the only dog volunteer to wade across the marsh and get this crippled greenhead a long LONG ways out. Now funny thing is, the kid was saying before we shot at this last group that he'd never shot a band...so remember in that conversation, I took one of the DU bands i had from the DU dinner and one band on each of the legs of the mallard. I get back to the blind and say, "Look at this josh! You should a double banded mallard!!" he got so excited he continued to brag about the double banded mallard he had shot. A few weeks later we informed him of the joke we played on him...boy was he pissed at us!! lol

My friends were goose/duck hunting one morning at one of our spots and it was ridiculously foggy out. i love hunting when its like that because you cant see the birds and they cant see you until they are right on top of you. Anyhow, there were geese flying and they had some honkers talking to them and were waiting for them to come through the fog. One of the guys has brought his dad who is about 70. When the geese came through the fog the dad brought his gun up to shoot and missed his first shot so he was tracking the goose for a follow-up. "the next thing i knew i was on my knees, missing my glasses and gun, bleeding all over the place" he said. As it turns out, his son got the honker that he missed (which were directly above them now) and it fell through the fog and hit him right square in the face. I saw him the next day and he had 9 stitches in the top of his cheek from where his glasses were pushed down and he had two of the biggest matching black eyes i had ever seen. Everyone was pretty concerned abotu him at the time but now its definitely something we joke about. we still laugh about how funny his new "face camo" looked to this day.

shot 2 bule wing teal in one shot from about 45 yards, another is when i was hunting with my friend shot a group of geese mine didnt die, we both where out of shells now, and had to chase it all over the duck lake (2 acre lake flooded 2.5 feet deep).

then one day using a single shot 36in barreled 12ga got a goose at close to 65-70 yards

This one woody spot we have we always here turkeys on the hill behind us so i got a turkey tag. One morning we could here it in the tree above us but couldn't see it cuz it was to dark. Just when my buddy says he sees it it lifts up and glides over the decoys i pull up and shoot it right out of the air and the dog retrieves it. It was priceless.

Another time i was out movin decoys and ran back in cuz birds were coming. After i shoot i reach in my pocket to grab some shells. I reach in my pocket I get poked by somethin sharp. I look and pull out a frickin catfish only about 6 or 7 inches long. Another great memory.
