    The birds are starting to show back up in Wisco. If we have open water, they are hear.

    That’s good, I was starting to get jealous of the southern boys shooting all ‘my’ ducks 🙂

    Sounds like you will be ready to put in some food plots.

    Had a pile of mallards on the river last Tuesday. Seen them while in the deer stand. Set up on Wednesday. Saw maybe 15 ducks and hunted till 1:00. They must have stopped for a drink and moved on. Shot a couple honkers that got lost and shot a couple ducks. Maybe tomorrow morning for one last hurrah until September of next year.

  • It does have the yellow bill and I wish I would have thought to remove the snow before the picture. I was unaware that the bill was one of the main factors in figuring out if it is a drake or hen but learned after doing some googling and looking it up.

    No my mom does not carve decoys. She makes hand made Christmas cards.

  • I have been chasing ducks since I was knee high to a grass hopper. I have shot hundreds of birds over the years. In all of those years I have shot 1 black duck. This year I was lucky enough to shoot 2. This one is going on the wall. From googling images, I am pretty sure it is a drake.

    If they included 2 Asians, they would be sold out. The Minnesotans and Dakotas guys would be all over that.

    We are all but froze out. The remaining birds are on the rivers and deep lakes. I am hoping to shoot a few green heads next week. Got a week off from work. Chasing deer and ducks.

    Our marshes and small ponds are froze up. I am hoping to get one or two more cracks at them before we close in early December. I found a little river just south of town that had 5-700 hundred on it. Might try to find the fields they are using. Birds are sitting in the city limits and going out to feed. Finding time to get out is the hard part.

    My season got off to slow start. Being a new Dad has taken its toll on the birds. I got out on opener and took my son along, much to my wife’s chagrin. He was taking a nice nap in the truck as I went on my milk run of wood duck pot holes( I was only away from the truck a couple minutes at a time) Luckily one of the pot holes had some wood ducks on…[Read more]

    Looks like a great hunt. Nothing like Ohh Canada!

  • DU870 replied to the topic yellow dog in the forum Online Lodge 3 years, 1 month ago

    Yellow dog was ready to hunt some more and you were grilling. Figured she would get some birds for you.

    My old lab Dixie did that one time in a marsh. Took off while we chasing roosters around the marsh. She heard gun fire from another group and she was off. We figured she went and got their birds and then came back to us. Very scary and…[Read more]

    Lets hope the ribs heal up fast. If not you might need to buy a 410 !

  • Welcome back JC, it has been kind of quite without you around. Make sure you shoot some of the Cali ducks and post up some pics!

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

  • DU870 replied to the topic 1st of the year in the forum Online Lodge 3 years, 2 months ago

    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]

  • DU870 replied to the topic Full Body Mallards in the forum Online Lodge 3 years, 2 months ago

    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 3 years, 2 months 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]
