Opening weekend was alot of birds. This past weekend, Sat. was a total bust. Sun. went to a state refuge and managed to eek out 4. If it hadn’t been cloudy, I would have need at least a 35 SPF, 73 deg.
Come on down this weekend. You wont’ regret it or you might. That’s hunting. I’m pretty sure with all the cold you had, the big ducks blew right past you and ended up at Reelfoot. Seeing those waves of ducks coming off the lake Sat.to the fields reminded me of yr. 2000. Could get ugly in a hurry. Yu need to make the run.
Had the annual coot shoot on Reelfoot Sat. Few gray ducks. Rode out to the pit Sat. aft. Mini state refuge was wrapped up with greenheads, with waves of 50-100 flying off the lake to the fields. Got 2 days at the pit this coming weekend. Looks extremely promising.
We had a fair opener. Then they gave us 4 extra teal days. Neighbor and I went to work on his deer stands, took our shotguns, beavers had dammed up the creek and flooded a milo field. We each limited out with one shot. There were about 500 in the field. LOL!
I pulled a similar stunt with an old table saw. I was building shelves for the garage at son’s house I moved to and was cutting a test strip to hang peg board. Had a short piece and grabbed the other end and the saw kicked and took a chunk out of my left index finger and slice of my thumb. I almost became the Cornbread of the South. Wasn’t enough to stitch or glue, so I just used the peroxide and betadine and kept it bandaged for a few days. Healing nicely. Dang lucky.
I painted my other house in Jackson also. Like you earth tones. A couple of Japanese are coming in on the 21st and will hopefully like it enough that their company will pay me $2200/mo. for them to live there for the next 2 years. Basically, I am house poor. Spent the last year and a half fixing up 2 places in Jackson, son’s and mine, and the 2 places on the lake at Reelfoot. Time to get liquid. Put the for sale by owner sign up a few weeks ago. Had 3 offers for a contract for deed. If I don’t rent to the japs next week, I will probably go ahead and list it with a realtor. Too much of a hassle stopping what I am doing to meet someone that wants a year to get their credit in shape.
