  2. Goose hunting in Willows, Ca. We got snows, cacklers, aleutians, specs, a tule goose, and a bull sprig. I never took a group pic though.

  8. heres this weeks 3 GW 2 ring necks 1 rabbit. I had another ring neck down but still alive he was on the other side of the pond instead of shooting him again at that distance he took off running up and over the dam I went after him not to worried about it knowing that behind it dropped off straight down and no where really to go. when I was on the dam close to where my duck went over I spooked a cotten tail I shot it went to retrieve it thinking I'll come back pick the duck up but I could not find him anywhere I searched and searched he just disappeard!?!? A rabbit for a duck I guess. haha [​IMG]

    No pics, but I killed my first woodie today! Where we hunt we never see them and i was invited to hunt a place where they have killed a few. We were about to leave empty handed and in came a hen and drake. I picked out the drake and brought him down. Sorry no pics, but I am thrilled to kill the ever elusive woodrow!!!

    Kidd Traditions last a lifetime.

    It's funny how rare some birds are to be found in certain states and in others the birds are everywhere. Where we hunt if we don't kill a woodie we're shocked, but pintails, wigeons, redheads, canvasbacks, and golden eye seem to not exist, yet I see them on alot if pics in this thread.

    Last year I posted up a few pics of cinnamon teal and it prompted a taxidermist from WI to contact me and ask if I knew of any guides in my area that could put him on some cinnamons. I told him that I'm not a guide but I'd take him out for free but I couldn't guarantee he'd get one. He has killed every huntable specie of North American waterfowl including the King Eider, and the only one that he hadn't shot yet was the cinnamon teal.
    Well, yesterday his gun hadn't been loaded for even 5 minutes when he took this beauty. Our harsh weather is hard on him though. He left the sub-zero temps of WI for our 84* temps.

    Well, it looks like this is the last weekend for waterfowl hunting in Texas..... The season came and went pretty fast it seems, and we had some very memorable hunts. IMO the goose hunting was stronger than the duck hunting, but we made it through the season with about a 25 bird average.... here are a mixture of pictures from this past year....

    Waterfowler,

    You are a great hunter, as well as a great bird taxidermist! Love your work and your hunting pictures. Have a good off season as our season ended last Saturday. :'(

    Here are just a few pics of my season, as I only was able to get out a few times.

    Later,

    Jeff Nelson
