Possibly last year on this property. Making the most of it.

I had a nice place get sold before I could put together the finances to buy it. It's a hard thing. I still haven't found a new place. But before too long I think I'll have the finances together to buy a place. I just hope I can find something that will hold waterfowl. I really don't have a good option for waterfowl hunting right now and I miss it. Good luck this season and thanks for sharing the memories. Nice looking Boykin.

Usually not the kinda place everybody limits out but you can usually count on getting something consistently.
Limiting out seems like this awesome goal, until you and your buddy do it and realize you now have a chit load of birds to clean lol

Love the pictures, I mounted my first and only wood duck... your mount is awesome!

Thanks! He was a great dog. A snake bite took him out a couple years ago. Unfortunately I wasn’t there with him at the time he died but it was determined later that’s what happened.

Back before I got the dog we used to shoot ducks and pick them up in a canoe when we were done. At that point nobody had told us we needed expensive camo to kill ducks. My brother Jeff is holding the duck and my mom actually made that fleece jacket for him. It was all about being out there and shooting ducks.74CDC1B9-730E-447B-B4B5-D70757F71DEF.jpeg

Well I got the bad news this week. I thought I’d make it through the season and it would sell in the spring but I was informed Tuesday that they were closing Wednesday and I went and got my stuff out of the blind. Fortunately I scouted some public last week and found some ducks. Just hate it had to happen this soon because second split opens Saturday for about 3 weeks. Oh well I’ll hunt that public like I own it because I do #publiclandowner

I’ve had a few pheasant hunting spots change owners over the years. It sucks for sure. Probably why I’ve gravitated so much to chukars in recent years. Plenty of public land and not many folks dumb as me to compete with.
