Hey Turtle! Oh yeah the boy's from Michigan made it here. Only half of them made it though :sad: . The other vehicle got into an accident out there on black ice and got damaged. Two hunters and a photographer made it here safely and we hunted on Friday and Saturday. We hunted Brant on Friday and limited out on a flock of 80 that pitched off of a flock of about 200 right into our spread. We missed a Gadwall, got 3 Widgeon, 1 Black, and 1 Bufflehead. On Saturday we hunted up North and got 2 Canadians, 2 Mallards, 1 Ringneck, and missed out on some Teal, and few Ringnecks. Friday I got pretty embarrassed when my boat would not start at the ramp and we physically rowed out to our spot :oops: . The motor I guess had some moisture in it and from the 18 degree temperature she just did'nt want to start. After the sun warm it up she started right up. I really enjoyed the guys and I think they had fun as well. Just did'nt have time to do more! The photographer is hopefully emailing me some pics so I can post them for everyone to check out. He took some amazing shots of us hunting and some of the areas wildlife. Definitely a first class photographer and did I mention a nice guy! Those boy's turned the Delaware water upside down!!!! Really good gunners and a good bunch of guys! Hope to get out to Lake St. Claire to do some diver hunting with them next season and get them out here again next year! :thumbsup:

Ill get pics up when I receive them, the hunt was great, weather could of been a little worse not to say 45, sunny and light winds don't really get the birds moving. plan on doing it again next year for a few extra days, a day in half just is to fast. All rested now ready to do some goose hunting

I hope everyone in the other vehicle is OK. Glad you guys had a great time. I was stuck working all week and now have a couple of days off and it is in the 60's. What goes is it Jan or not. Daffy did you fill up the morning the boat would not start? The gas nowadays seperates to quickly and causes lots of trouble in any engine other than a car that is driven everyday. Gunner if them other guys are all ok make sure you tell them "man you should have been there".
