We had some real cool temps this past week. Next week they are calling for heat indexs to hit 100. Can’t run the dog in that kind of heat. Hoping it will cool down the following week and I can get out after some honkers and grey rockets.
Im thinking the forums will pick up some activty as the season gets a bit closer and birds start moving. Good luck to everyone getting after the birds.February 16, 2015 at 3:04 pm #8958
We get nada. We have special geese in Wisconsin and can’t kill them past the normal season. I drove by a field on Friday holding hundreds of honkers and green heads. They seem to like the cold and snow.December 9, 2014 at 7:56 am #8817
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 🙂December 9, 2014 at 7:55 am #8816
Sounds like you will be ready to put in some food plots.December 3, 2014 at 10:00 am #8809
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.November 14, 2014 at 12:04 pm #8753
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.November 11, 2014 at 7:45 am #8719
Good to hear everything is looking good. Ive had friends take the cure, its a hard road but worth it.November 11, 2014 at 7:43 am #8718
I feel the love.October 21, 2014 at 8:58 am #8658
Looks like a great hunt. Nothing like Ohh Canada!October 14, 2014 at 10:20 am #8641
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 frustrating at the same time.October 14, 2014 at 10:16 am #8640
Lets hope the ribs heal up fast. If not you might need to buy a 410 !September 29, 2014 at 2:41 pm #8414
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!September 16, 2014 at 8:59 am #8387
Guys and power tools. Keeping ER’s busy since they invented them.September 16, 2014 at 8:54 am #8386
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.September 10, 2014 at 8:29 am #8338
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 500. My 870 always works and I love the gun. I have 3 of the SP 3 inch models. Several of my hunting buddies have the SX2 and SX3 and they seem to shot a lot of shells but not hit a lot of things 🙂September 9, 2014 at 10:11 am #8333
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.September 5, 2014 at 2:40 pm #8324
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 fields, the dove were scarce.August 26, 2014 at 7:37 am #8295
It will be soon. The hardest part is waiting!August 26, 2014 at 7:26 am #8294
I hope JC wasn’t using his walker when it hit, might knock him over 🙂August 22, 2014 at 8:37 am #8283
The happy place where duck hunters go to talk about anything other than duck hunting. Well sometimes duck hunting but normally not.
