    The snow storm in the dakota’s should throw a monkey wrench into the mix. Birds will be heading south away from the storm, some will wait it out and I am sure some are north of the snow line and will keep going.

    How did you do? Did you pull it out of the season or loose the field or something?

    My buddies were down by lake rathbun this weekend shed hunting and said guys were shooting the crap out of snows. Said they heard volleys all day long.

    I should say I enjoy the videos and pictures but it makes me miss it that much more. It has been a long long winter. The snow goose hunt normally helps to break it up. The good news is spring turkey is right around the corner.

    The white devils got a pass from me this year. Hope to get after them next year. I will say one of the down sides to face book is seeing all of the hunts, videos and piles of dead birds. I miss that hunt, there is nothing like it in the waterfowl world.

    Good to hear they are doing well now. I am sure there were some scary moments. You have a couple future hunting buddies right there!

    No dynasty yet but I am working on it!

    He has started to make baby noises and recognize things around him. He has discovered his hands and arms and is starting to wave them around and grab at things. We were sitting in the recliner a couple nights ago and be propped his head up and turned to his right. All of sudden he threw his head back, his eyes got real wide and he stared at the window. I look over and I can see his reflection in the window. I think he was also staring at his reflection and trying to figure out what was in the window.

    JC had to be sedated. Apparently he was running around the nursing home grabbing the nurses and asking where they put his duck calls.

    Thanks guys! It’s been one hell of a ride so far. I admit, kind of a man bitch. I never figured I would change this many diapers. She has been cool, our first trip out of the house was up to the land and I buried the truck in a big snow drift. She just laughed and the kid was loving the 4 wheeling.

    Congrats to dirt clods! If you are in the delivery room, get ready, that is crazy. Go epidermal right away. When she is pregnant the mood swings happen fast.

    I tried posting some pics from his website but I am new to this iPad. Check out his website, it is pretty crazy.

    From everything I have heard, Rick is legit. They have 350+ bird days. He spent a bucket load of money and bought all new hard core snows this year. They shipped them in sea containers and dropped them off with Semi’s. it took them weeks to un box them all. This year they have a second pit that is about 10 miles away with 8 or 10 thousand decoys.

    They have landing strips that lead right to the pit and run a lot speakers. I think they hunt 8 from the pit. It would be sight to see. I was hoping to go in February but my wife and I had our first kid and that plan disappeared. I heard they are located between severely,large lakes and cooling ponds that hold a pile of birds.

    I am out for this spring but hope to get after them next spring. There is outfitter in central Illinois that is running 13,000 full body decoys. I think I will see if has any openings next year and try that. They killed 3,600 snows last year, I figure I have a chance and getting into them with those kind of numbers. The last couple spring hunts have been kind of slow.

    My 2014 bucket list- I want my kid to be healthy and happy and introduce him to the outdoors. I want to take him out and show him all sorts of critters, tree’s and anything and everything mother nature has to offer. I want/need to get a new job. My hotel is being bought and closed and the new management company runs a different kind of sales office. I wouldn’t mind getting a .410 and shooting a limit of green heads with it. If not green heads a limit of drake woodies. I want to shoot a P&Y buck with my bow. I want to take a waterfowl trip with Dad and Brother, somewhere where my Dad can shoot ducks in a corn field. Ducks and corn is on his buck list so I figure we can get 2 things out of the buckets with that trip.

    This cold snap pushed the local geese out and It is has been some time since I have seen that. Most of the water is frozen and I am not even seeing the small flocks heading out in the afternoon. The river is still holding some birds and they are feeding in the cow crap spread out in the fields. Some real die hard birds.

    I know some folks through FB and my Hardcore gig that are wearing the birds out in Kansas, Southen Missouri and Oklahoma. I guess the hunting in SD was unbelievable this year. When I read these reports, it makes me wish I didn’t live in the cheddar head state.

    My dog wasn’t a ‘rescue’ dog per se but her first owner was a real A hole. When we got her, she was scared to death of men and about everything really. It is amazing what time, affection and caring will do for a lab. My girl has done a 180 and is now a pretty good hunting dog. She will never be a trial dog or do 200 yard blinds retrieves but she hunts hard, protects the house and her ‘mom’ ( my wife) like no other and has kind of grown to like other people but still doesn’t trust anyone but my wife and I.
