i made the comment in another thread that i believe the seasons are arriving later in the calendar year.....winter in dec...spring in april....summer in july......remember when it was cold during halloween....now you sweat to death following your kids around....

we get tons of birds in feb....Patoka FWA has pictures of the sky littered with birds....they estimated into the thousands.....but it was in feb....oh well

e'villeduck - i've been thinking about trying the patoka river bottoms where the river is now out....do you get up this way (Oakland City)...usually snakey point is pretty good...but the backwaters are out and gives the birds more options for water...

slow birds gives me time to work on my boat blind

here lies the problem.....

i want cold weather to send the ducks south....

however if it turns cold...we get really busy at the business that i own...a propane company....

hmmmmmm at least i have a cell phone where they can get in touch with me....as long as it gets cold before season ends....

this slow and windy time is giving me time to finish my boat blind....

and the 100 ducks of good variety are hiding where?????

i haven't been out for a week..and was dismal when i did go out....went out one afternoon and saw 0/zero/nada flying....hunkered down at home and was able to finish my boat blind.....avery has been out of them for a while(i was going to order one) so i fabricated on out of 3/4 emt and blind material...didn't turn out too bad...may just stick with this for when the wind is blowing canoes catch hell when the wind blows over 7mph

thought about floating the canoe out in oatsville bottoms south of the mine and north of the river for some field hunting....saw some guys out over there two weeks ago

also thought about taking the canoe out on the old part of the patoka river east of SR57 when the water raises a little more...

i was on the oatsville road twice today but never got over by the coal mine patoka river way to see if the H2O was still out...

i found plans for a boat blind on http://pages.pathwaynet.com/~bketner/boatblind.htm

simple but real sturdy design....compared to some of the even simpler pvc brand duck blinds....in my book any duck blind is better than none...

what is the mackey bend....i moved out here 6 years ago but have never heard that term for a location....

i have however picked up on many location names through my business...Propane One...its amazing the number of nickname areas around southern indiana

hey poke i'd be real careful about eating a canada that came from the oak hill coal mine area...those stupid birds float around in the coal slurry pit all day....yuck

going out this weekend hopefully...we'll see
