MT, what are those birds? divers of some sort im guessing..
And we're off. Got 11" of rain last week. My 20-30 acre lakes are all 200-400 acres of water. Took my dad and two of his buddies. Three guys in their 60s is more work than kids! Water needed to drop 6" more to get to the X. So we setup with the wind in our face. Scratched out a pile of red heads, cans, and teal.
Was painful to watch the flocks of 50-100 wigeon going right to the spot I wanted to be. By Wednesday the water will be back to 50-75 acres and its on.
Me and my dad.
My 12 year ols daughter and her first two ducks taken during the Missouri Youth Duck weekend last weekend! She's hooked! It helps to have the Cabelas Waterfowl Catalog cover man doing the calling for us!
WB, we had a mixed bag of goldeneyes, redheads, hooded mergansers and buffleheads. The goldeneyes and redheads were all hens.
2 rock, 1 willow and 1 Whitetailed ptarmigan
picked up a new Over and under shotgun friday, took it out Saturday to break it in. a limit of 10 birds.
Had great morning yesterday. 3 of us guys got 91 snows, 10 Canadians, 1 speck all over a not so impressive decoy spread. 16 dozen make shift decoys with both pickups and a trailer stuck in the mud 300 yards behind us in the middle of the wide open field. From thinking we were only going to get maybe a couple to this was unbelievable. We actually ran out of ammo, luckily it was at the end of the flight. If I wouldn't have been there I wouldn't have believed myself.
Lucky.... Most birds ive ever shot on one hunt was like 7 doves.. and ducks.. maybe 3 LOL
Brazosboyt.. LUCKY!!!!!! REDHEADS!!!!!
Bout 500 redheads on my spot for we'd am. And 500 gwt. I almost hate shooting the redheads now. Terrible coloring. They will be so pretty when they come back from the coast in jan.
Thats awesome. is this your own property? or public??
wonderful Todd, you live in heaven
have been out wth my Irish setter Grace a ittle bit jump-shooting and got a nice mixed bag,
mallards, greenwings, tufted ducks and a pochard
Grace and tufted duck
mixed bag close up
Teal gone this am but plenty of gads and wigeon.
5 guys going in the am. I saw something I've never seen- migrating redheads coming in. At 1 pm today we had about 1000 redheads on my 60 acre lake. I watched wave after wave come in from a mile high. Obvious migratory. By the time I left. There was 3000 redheads and 500+ pintail. 5 guys going in the morning and we're gunning for all drakes.
Sumpin like these hopefully.
Turned out ok!
Had to get my tall hunters out today. 3" to spare on the waders with all the flooding. Dans 6-7.
Got too close.
Got everybody's drake redheads.
Along with a few ringers , pintails,and wigeon.
35 lbs of fire but she was whipped after 42 retrieves.
As a connoisseur of fine redheads :dv. This is one of the best I've ever seen.
First group in was redheads. 2 shooters cut three.
Wasn't paying attention to which bird the dog grabbed first.
Let my buddy have it. Only his 2nd band hen redhead banded 05 in Manitoba.
Numbers were almost worn off.
Old school action.
Somebody doesn't know how close they were. Healed pellet hole in her foot.
05, holy cow, that's an old bird!
Great action Todd and congratulations for that banded hen.
Have been out in the morning to help the fishermen by looking for cormorants, got two of them. My Gordon setter dont likes to take them because of their smell but she did, Rainer.
needed a jackrabbit for a friend to eat, so went out with my Irish setter Grace and we got one within 5 minutes
Some great hunts guys! Hope to see a lot more to come! Here are a few from our annual trip. [/URL[/URL
Took a lot of pics on this one and these two were my personal favorites...
