today i joined the scearce brothers and crew for an alabama gadwall hunt. what a show! we had lots of birds working the spread early but only few committed to the decoys. these were my first gadwalls so it was a real treat. we ended the day with seven gadwall which we took home and ate for dinner. the chattanooga crew are first rate and i had a blast with them in the blind. thanks again daniel for the invite!

bob and i went over to the st. johns river yesterday to do a bit of duck hunting. we each shot our mottled duck but that was about all we saw flying. so we decided to make a snipe hunt out of the trip. bob had never been snipe shooting before but he proved up to the task. he not only shot his first snipe but he got his first limit. nice job bob. we had a great time and i think bob is gonna be a sniper for life.

8 duck breasts
1 bottle of everglades wild orange marinade
1 block of blue cheese
2 packs of bacon
1 jar of bbq sauce ( I prefer cattleman’s)
cut duck breasts into bite size pieces and marinate in everglades wild orange marinade for 24 hours. wrap duck and a small slice of blue cheese in a half piece of bacon. use a toothpick (soak in water so they wont burn in oven) to hold the ingredients together. spray a cookie sheet with pam oil and place duck on top. cook at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 45 mins or until bacon is crispy. dab bbq sauce on duck and put back in oven for 3 mins.
mirrored citrus vinaigrette salad
roasted pine nuts
diced star fruit
blue cheese crumbles
everglades wild orange marinade mixed with olive oil
mac murray ranch pinot noir wine

i got to go hunting with "shotgun ed" and "notaduck" today over at merritt island. we were covered up in pintails all day. at first light we had about 200 land in our decoys. an amazing sight! ive never seen anything like it before. we must have seen 500 total throughout the morning. we didnt see any other ducks but we all shot a pinner each and enjoyed the show. it was great to watch notaducks dog, lucas, retrieve the ducks. it was the first time i had ever duck hunted with a dog. sure makes you want to own a good bird dog.
