spinach duck sausage pasta

duck sausage
kosher salt
olive oil
white wine
angle hair pasta
fresh grated parmesan

duck sausage

2 teaspoons dried sage
3 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound ground pork
1 pound ground duck

as many of you, i have birds in the freezer from last season that are less than fresh and i need to make room for new birds. i decided this year to get a meat grinder and make some duck/pork sausage. i used mostly ringers but had some snipe and quail in the freezer too. it is delicious and wife and kid approved.

no camera lots of fog

got to the ramp this morning and realized i had forgotten my camera. bob called it right when he said "thats almost as bad as forgetting your gun." that set me on tilt from the get go. the fog was so thick that we barely found our spot. the fog didnt lift until around 10 am. we ended the day with 1 hen teal (bob) and two drake ringers (me). i took some pics with my phone.

two wigeon and a handful of snipe

quackbob and i went out yesterday morning. didnt see many ducks. we shot two wigeon. only 5 birds total checked at the station including our two. skipped over to another lake to try and push a few snipe. we ended up with a handful. not a ton of action but a great day nonetheless
