2 lakes 4 woodies

dfgator and i went out this morning on a couple of local lakes to see if we could find some birds. shot 4 woodies on two different lakes. not too bad for two lakes we had never been on before.

bread eaters

couple of muskoveys. too close to some houses to feel good about blasting them but if they get over the lake they will join the bag.

went out this morning hoping for a couple of bbwds. they flew over head but couldnt get them to come down in range. did get a nice feral mallard.

windy with a chance of ringers

it got a little too windy for my pirogue out there today. still managed a few ringers back in the grass but stayed off the open water most of the day. beside that it was a gorgeous ducky day out there.

a few more blues

bob and i went out to oklawaha this morning. while we were putting in the boat it started sleeting and snowing. it was crazy cold. the birds were flying well. loads of blue wing teal. we never could get set up in the right spot. we ended the day with two nice drakes. it was by far the coldest day ive ever hunted. i took a picture of some of the snow that was left in my pirogue at the end of the hunt. in the morning it was covered but very dark.

half moon and drakes

the temp was 28 degrees with ice on the windshield when i headed out this morning. it felt good! it felt like duck hunting weather. i had decided that i was going to try and only take drakes. i accomplished that goal but was one bird shy of my limit. i passed on several hens and stayed extra long but alas i could not get that last drake. im not opposed to shooting hens, just wanted to see if i could hold back and only shoot drakes. i had one dive on me in the weeds and never come back up. i hate losing birds!!! all in all a wonderful day on the lake. trying out a new look for the self portrait
