waterfowl starts tomorrow

Got my decoys all out, my shotgun cleaned, my ammo all packed. Damn, I'm excited about the season is finally open. Duck for dinner tomorrow night. :smile: I've got two weeks of waterfowl hunting before deer rifle season starts and the population IS going to drop. I hope I limit out fast because it is a work day but if I don't... I guess I'll take a day off.

Good Luck! I hear the flu season is in full swing in case you don't limit out fast... Wink

Well, I've got the first day in but couldn't limit out. I got three black ducks and a mallard in about the first 30 minutes but couldn't bag the last one. They were flying in and out steady but aways out of gun range. I'll give that area a break until Sat. See you... I've got plucking to do. :smile:

I hate plucking as well, but since I can't convince the wife to do it I guess I'll have to. The blacks were the biggest ducks I have ever shot. They were huge. They doubled the size of the green head which is usually twice the size of blacks up here.

Four more today... 2 blacks and 2 ring-necks. They were all average sizes. The ring necks were probably a good size for ring-necks. I'm plucking again.

And just when I was starting to think you were a smooth talker. Wink

Hope you had a good dinner at any rate.

LOL. She sees right through my plees. I shoot it... I pluck it... I eat it. Her job is to curse when I am gone to get more.

Well, duck is considered fine cuisine. I figured that would soften her resolve, better not push your luck though....
