    Guys and power tools. Keeping ER’s busy since they invented them.

    It got down into the low 40′s last night. Had some even cooler air last week. Dove are pretty much gone. I am not sure about our local woodies and teal. I am hoping the wood ducks stick around. We open October 4th for ducks. The wife has to work so I will be reading reports and wishing I was out hunting. In a few years I will be taking the little guy.

  • I really liked my 1187 when it went bang. After a year it became nothing but a problem. The gun smith told me it was made on a Monday :) He did say he never seen one with so many issues. I will go back to one in a few years. I picked up a browning gold and I love it. It goes bang and it seems to hit what I am aiming at. I got it used for around…[Read more]

    I have hardcore full bodies and avery full body’s. As mentioned the movement is key. I like the looks of the new hardcore decoys. They are holding up well and have good movement in the breeze.

  • DU870 replied to the topic Doves for anyone? in the forum Online Lodge 2 weeks ago

    My dove opener and the following 2 days was a total bust. I mainly hunt DNR sun flowers and they were not holding birds. Sun flowers were immature, the mowed fields had grass in them and some fields were not mowed. Maybe seen 30 birds in 3 days of hunting. We eneded up with 8 birds total. Even driving around looking to ask permission on private…[Read more]

  • It will be soon. The hardest part is waiting!

  • I hope JC wasn’t using his walker when it hit, might knock him over :)

    The happy place where duck hunters go to talk about anything other than duck hunting. Well sometimes duck hunting but normally not.

  • Nice job!

  • DU870 replied to the topic I'll be a monkeys uncle in the forum Online Lodge 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    Some old, some new folks still hanging out, waiting for duck season to start.

  • DU870 replied to the topic BEST SHOT in the forum Online Lodge 1 month ago

    Haha, I sure hope to! I am not sure on how good the season will be. From recent scouting, I am not seeing a lot of teal. Seeing woodies and mallards. When you buy it by the case, you get free shipping:)

    I figure if nothing else, I can reach out on the dove a little farther :) n them.

  • DU870 replied to the topic BEST SHOT in the forum Online Lodge 1 month, 1 week ago

    I like 3′s and 4′s. I just picked up a case of Kent Teal steel in 6′s. I do a fair amount of jump shooting creeks and small ponds before and after work for wood ducks. Normally in close and personal shooting. When decoy hunting I like the bigger shot because the birds are normally mallards or bigger ducks and some days they just don’t want to back…[Read more]

  • How does the drawing work?

    Do you get a spot and build your own blind or does the lake/dnr provide the blinds?

    Welcome!

  • DU870 replied to the topic Ummmmm……Hello? in the forum Online Lodge 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    Duck hunting is a little over a month away. I am guessing it will pick up then.

  • DU870 replied to the topic DU vs Delta in the forum Online Lodge 2 months ago

    I am starting to think my money might be better spent putting up wood duck houses and mallard nest. I finally figured out the membership issue with DU and for some reason is has left me a little pissed off at them. I will reup with Delta, DU I am not sure about. I might change my mind, I do like the magazine.

  • DU870 replied to the topic Wisco Teal Season in the forum Online Lodge 2 months ago

    I read that Miinnneeeessssoootttta was the only state to shoot it down. Hopefully you guys will get it next year. I am curious to how long it will last in WIsconsin. If a certain number of non teal are shot, the season will be shut down the following year. Wisconsin has a lot of duck hunters that are the sharpest crayon in the box. A lot them are…[Read more]

  • DU870 replied to the topic DU vs Delta in the forum Online Lodge 2 months ago

    I contribute to both.

    I am talking with a customer service rep for DU due to the fact they stopped sending me magazines. DU says my membership expired in February. My online DU account says it expires in September. I have emailed and called, waiting to hear back.

    I also emailed DU awhile back and asked them to stop sending me shit every week.…[Read more]

    Thank goodness they got rid of the noon opener!

  • DU870 replied to the topic Wisco Teal Season in the forum Online Lodge 2 months, 1 week ago

    The 9:00 opener stems from a hunting accident back in the day. I think it was in the 60′s. Some young kids were out in a boat hurrying to their spot when the boat capsized. At least one drowned maybe more. One of the kids was a son of politician. The politician then passed the 9:00 opener so people would be going out in the day light. I am not…[Read more]
