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

    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.

    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 running around a brick shy of a load so we will see. I am thinking if the feds are out in force, we might not have it next year.

    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. Literally once a week I get a packet of info to join or renew DU. In my email to them I asked why not save the money on printing this stuff and put it towards the ducks. i never heard back. It seems silly to constantly send out this stuff when I have been a member since i was about 16 or 18 years old.

    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 sure what the difference is between Saturday and then Sunday. Its a rat race every day of the season.

    If you are hunting a large public area, the 9:00 opener keeps birds moving but overall really hurts the hunting. Sunday is normally a better day.

    Haha, yea a 9:00 opener but the 2nd day is normal half hour before. I have to double check but I think we have to stop hunting at 7:00pm. The DNR is thinking the 9:00 opener will reduce the morons from shooting woodies, mallards and other ducks.

    Yep, lots of steel shot. I hunt mainly public and you have to use steel for everything from dove to turkeys. I am thinking 3 inch mag 6′s for the all around shell. Shoot teal, dove and honkers. Just make sure to hit the honkers in the head!

    Yu, correct. It does not stop even after the 90 minutes has passed. Goofy game.

    FB is fun for pissing off my liberal friends. It also is fun to see how stupid some people can be. Cheap entertainment really. The whole NSA and federal tracking thing is pretty scary. Big brother watches all of our moves, facebook, email, phone calls, text messages. What ever you do, they know about it. The strange part is nobody seems to care.

    Pro staff gigs are not all that bad. Good discounts on decoys and stuff. Always need more decoys and stuff :)

    My only hope for shooting an elk is if the herd in Wisconsin really starts to expand and they issue some tags.

    Good to hear they caught it when they did. I am coming up on the age of the ol oil check. Not looking forward to it.

    Good to see the site is back up. My boss has been pleasantly surprised with my sales production lately. Sadly that will now change :)

    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.
