    Thank you! I hope you have a big ice chest! We've been getting some great birds. Starting a 8 day grind on sat. Ton of birds here now. I'm pumped about our 2 can/day limit this yr. they showed up in big numbers yesterday.

    Got a little springfed pond that always has a few wood ducks this time of year. My oldest said he wanted to try to go get a pair too mount. Had a feeling we would kill 3 to 4 wood ducks and was actually kind of surprised we ended up with five wood ducks and 6 gwt.
    Neat little pond that has a pecan and a red oak tree on the back end. When they are dumping in oct-I've seen 100 wood ducks running around on the bank picking up acorns.

    It never ceases to amaze me to see a kiddo smash a flying bird with a 410. He got a hen and a drake and was pumped.

    Brother was with us on another great day. He gets another bird off his bucket list and first of all of us to get a hooded. His taxidermy bill is adding up. Good thing for him he gets the friends and family discount. He is a good luck charm for sure. Hope he is with us when the cans show up. Were all dying to get our first can.

    Every year I trade hunting and fishing trip with a friend of mine that lives in Alaska. This year he came and brought one of our mutual friends 15-year-old sons with him.

    Sunday had divers on the menu.

    Monday was pintails in the fog.

    Tuesday We had high expectations for greenhead and canvasback beat down. One of my spots had about 200 total. But as usual the cold front ran the birds off and replace them with ringnecks. " black" it's the new green.

    [​IMG]

    Tuesday evening we ran out to our place in San Saba and got Hunter's first Whitetail deer.
    [​IMG]

    We'd We shot a pretty good pile of ducks, a doe and picked up a fox.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thursday went out to our main lake and climbed in the pit Blind. Once again with high expectations of the hundreds of birds that were in there on Tuesday. The cold front blew most of them out and we had about 60 birds come in. But the ones that came decoyed like champs.

    I went to work for a little while when I got home and red had all the guys hanging Christmas lights.

    So not only are they good for the hundred pounds of fresh halibut they brought,
    [​IMG]
    But they made mama happy too.

    Friday we went to my friends place which is my favorite place!
    [​IMG]

    Today we were hoping to get Hunter a Woodduck and weren't expecting to shoot much more than 4-5 birds and were really surprised by the mallards and gadWalls that were in the This 1/4 acre timber hole.

    We just absolutely had a great week, we cooked a lot of great food and ate like pigs.

    Brazosboyt your pictures make me jealous every time I see them. I would love to make my way down there and do a guided hunt for some specimens for the wall.

    We went on a guided hunt on Long Island earlier this week. Did the scoter slam and brought back pairs of all the sea ducks for mounts minus one hen surf scoter that never came in range. Had a great time!!
