how is everyone's duck season going?

Recommended Posts

I'll always love the Cards. We lived behind Lou Brock's flower shop in the late 60's.

 

CA has maybe a million acres of rice, at least 1/2 flooded each fall to decomp the rice straw. They outlawed 99.99% of burning the straw because of pollution & health reasons.

 

Decomp is good & bad. Good to have a place to hunt, but the birds now are mostly disinterested and just sleep, eat, and sheit in untouchable areas of rice. A natural club near the rice is the best spot as the ducks like the marshes during daylight hours and feed in the rice at night.

 

But we have our good rice days on occasion...

That's about 1/3 what I normally use. We get so many species of ducks & geese, you need many calls. I use at least 2 speck calls, 1 snow call, 1 cackler call, 1 honker call, plus all sorts of calls & whistles for sprig, teal, widgeon, gadwall, mallets, etc.

 

Even with all the rain, we are still getting a few birds.

I shoot many Benelli's, but Browning Golds are my favorite gas guns.

 

Just ordered a new Winchester SX3 today.

What about the Beretta 391 model? Have you ever shot that model, either field or sporting? They seem to be the most popular around here-how does that compare to the Gold?

Yeah, I also ordered an Xtrema II yesterday.

 

I like Beretta gas guns, but not nearly as much as Browning gas guns.

 

To me, Brownings are smaller, lighter, thinner, and much, much, easier to clean and maintain.

 

The first Xtrema is like a 2x4! The Xtrema II is a little better.

How do you I take a pic I have on my cpu and attach a URL to that image. This is the part that has me as lost as a goose in a snow storm.

 

Thanks

Black Jack,

I don't think frappr links are going to work here.

The URL must be a full and direct link to a image file.

 

Your's points to http://www.frappr.com/benelliownersgroup/photo/1033028 , but there should be a .jpg extension on it for it to be of use here.

 

Look at the properties of my image above and you'll see http://www.gemsdesigns.com/images/howtopostanimage.jpg

 

Nice mallards, by the way!

Today was my first day of armed duck hunting since my surgery on 10-31.

I used 2-3/4" 2's and had on lots of layers.

Didn't feel a thing...but these poor guys sure did :D

Wow, great looking lab. Mine is leaving for gun dog training next weekend. He was just a few weeks old in that pic. I will try to put a current pic up later.
