Utahsprig and The most handsome me, sorry i get carried away sometimes. Anyway we hit utah lake on a mini death march saturday. We took out 250 silos and about 5 dozen regular decoys all in are coffins. About 8:15ish we had a flock of widgeon come in and we pulled down 4 widgeon and a spoonie. They were right there. Picture perfect. Around 11:30 Utahsprig had to go so I stayed out tell about 2:00 missed one little flock of three around noon, then around 1:30ish I had 3 little flocks working and one came a little to close and I shot another widgeon. :mrgreen: Do you guys ever notice the walk back :help: is twice as hard as the walk in?

Hehe, it was raining birds :getdown: :getdown: . I just want to know why you had to shoot a spoony when the air was full of widgeon? Still, 5 birds down out of one flock wasn't bad.

Glad you saw a few more, I was wishing I would have been able to stick around longer. Where ya sleeping again when the noon flock came in?

Hey, you were really visible. I could see the silos clear over at the next point way up the road. Got mine cleaned off, that mud is nasty, it was into everything.

When I got home I sprayed off the silos the decoys and myself. The decoys are not spottles. They look better then they did. Yes I was sleeping and those dang birds woke me up :oops: :mrgreen: I think my shotgun took an hour to clean.

It was more than "somewhat" of a death marsh. Hauling 250 decoys out into the lake through that mud was definitivel a death march :eek: Funny the crazy things we'll do for a few ducks isn't it?

I have always said in order to be a duck hunter there has to be a part of you that enjoys being miserable.......walking to far with to heavy of a sack..... freezing feet...... cold hands..... rainy, snowy, and windy days are good days... We are not all there...screws loose!!!! koo koo!!! :help:

By the way a decoy sack always weighs more in the afternoon or evening than in the morning.

Miserable is a state of mind (for those who haven't lost theirs :toofunny: ). However, Carp pushed me into the water Saturday so I spent the last hour wet, and it took me an hour once home to get all the water out of my gun :umm: :help:
