    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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 :)

    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.

    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.

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