Finally, the early season is upon us!

I know it's just four days, but I am ready for it!

 

Here's a little duck boat porn.

Loaded up and ready to go!

 

Mallards and Woodies in the bags and on standby.

Teal and chainsaw in the box.

When the morning hunt is done, we'll clear out some creeks for future use.

I'm glad I added the enclosure up front. There's not a lot of room, but it easily holds two life jackets and a small bag or two.

Hello?

I looked high and low for just the right box to enclose the switch wires and protect them from the elements and more importantly, clumsy fumbling duck hunters. When I'd all but given up, I mentioned to my hunting buddy that couldn't find a thing that was right for the job.

He works for the phone company.

The light stows inside the bag when not in use, but I also have it wired with a standard lamp cord male/female on the end, so it can be removed completely if need be.

Hopefully, I'll be posting some results pics tomorrow!

I may not sleep at all tonight! :D

We are getting into our second week up north. The opener in our area was pathetic to say the least, it appeared all the local birds up and moved on out a day or two before the season started. Cold fronts moving in so must have pushed them all south.

 

I hope this weekend brings a new wave of birds down.

We got 9, between the two of us.

We tried hard to get that 10th one, but it just wasn't meant to be.

 

This year's first duck.

Talley takes a much-deserved break.

800 miles of flooded shoreline, courtesy of the Noreaster a few weeks ago, is making it difficult to find them.

 

When you do find them, it can be productive!

 

Scout, scout, let it all out!

Hope your not counting the one on the right? It looks like it was already a floater.:cool:

Nice mix. We didn't do too bad with a nice mix of divers and puddlers in the big water ourselves.

My cell sucks as well.

Thinking about the Droid.

 

We hunted one of our blinds today. Specifically, the one with the closed in North side and the metal roof.

Snow, sleet, freezing rain driven by 25-30 mph winds made it feel like the Marriott.

 

Sleet makes duck decoy rapidly!

We also got harassed by three greenhorn GW's for in excess of two hours after taking out.

Long story made short - My hunting partner doesn't know how to exercise his rights nearly as well as I do.

In the words of Jed Clampet, "I gotta have me a Loooooonnnnng talk with that boy."

 

I'll be filing formal complaints with their LT's next week.
