last of 2011/2012

ended the season with my buddy jed today. he was the fourth to harvest his first duck out of my boat this season. we finished the day with five ringers each. now the depression sets in that we have 8 months till early teal season. planning to get out for a few snipe hunts before february 15th.

sunrise to sunset

we went out yesterday to shoot some more ringers. since it is the end of the season we decided to make an all day event out of it. we literally hunted from sunrise to sunset. it took awhile but we finally figured out what the ducks wanted. much of the day was slow hunting but we had a great time just hanging out in the blind. i'm trying to go out on saturday for my last hunt but not sure yet if that will happen. if i don't get back out this was a great way to end the season.

weekend with friends

this past weekend some buddies and i went down to a friend's lake house to do some duck hunting. the problem was there were no ducks on the lake. we saw a few mottled ducks but none came in range. we found some snipe on the last day and finally did some killing.
