Good luck with the hunts. Too bad I couldn't make it over there this year, maybe 2004.

I think you had better take a "just incase" shotgun Sun., you never know.

Boat??? Might be needing that to get to Gunner's house tomorrow if this rain keeps up. This is a lot of rain for this area isn't it?

Gotta head to Boise sometime today for shells and Christmas goodies.

See you tomorrow! I have the pass and a sitter.

Tell you what Moosie, if I left now I could be there by 3 a.m. since I happen to know Boise is 8 hours from here. Would that be early enough? Problem is it would take me a couple hours to pack my chit, so I wouldn't be there till 5. But then from what I remember the last time I hunted geese in eastern Wa, they don't fly real early. Is that true there also? At least when we were hunting (in winter wheat) we wouldn't see one goose till 9 a.m. Then all of a sudden there would be hundreds in the sky, of course most of them way high. We didn't do too bad though, we knocked down 27 in 2 days, and some mallards too. It was cool when the mallards started dropping into the dekes, the goose loads were a little heavy for those little ducks, but fun anyway(s)

The real problem is I still have a muzzleloader elk tag, and this is the last weekend. So I'll probably go out in the morning and wander around a bit, and just hope and elk wants to commit suicide by stepping out in front of me. As I'm sure you can tell, I don't have real high hopes, and I'm not going to put a lot of effort into it. I sure do wish I could help you knock down some geese...I hate to see all those flocks getting educated with little to no casualties

Good luck anyway(s)

Whew!!! Good thing Elkgunner was paying attention when I said I have never done anything like this. He asked me if I had a duck stamp and I said..."say what?"

I'm in luck though...Wally world had em. I'll have the truck loaded up before bed time.

Where would be a good place to meet you? I was thinking if Krispy Kreme was opened that early I could swing in there and pick up your sugar coated nuts with the red filling...or does it HAVE to be the truck stop donuts? I haven't had Krispy Kreme in years

I'm calling Gunner right now for the directions again...I can't find the old directions, not that they were good ones anyway.

I'm Boycotting that place.. Any one that Stands in line for 4 hours to get some Fuggin Donuts is NUTS!!! And, people do/did that for that place...

Either way...., I can Meet you at the Exit 38 (Nampa) gas station by Mc Donalds on the Right hand side. Get off the Freeway and Take a Left and it's on the Rt hand side. (Garrity Exit at the AUTO MALL). Say around 7:35(ish) ?

So when I last talked to Ovis, I think he was driving straight to the Trailer Park, and we would meet here at the Double Wide, at 8am.

MT,
I think this one will be another Cluster....

I'll call you when I am on the road too. Keep your phone on yah! I may meet up with you or just keep trucking on to the double-wide.

I about lost my mind trying to find my dang license. The wife found it...I knew I kept her around for something. I put that sticker on the back of my license...hope that was right.

So, can I shoot these things when they are on the ground, or do they have to be flying?

See you guys in the a.m. The wife calls!

I always have my phone Ovis. Call it 24/7. If I answer it I'm up, If I'm sleeping it's off and Leave a message. Duck/goose hunting nights I always leave it on, Incase I sleep in
wink.gif


See ya in the AM. I don't have your # here, so If you want to talk, you'll need to do the calling.

Get some Sleep, And you missed a Spot on the Kitchen floor, Get the mop out again

PS< Gunner likes to wait untill the Geese land, We always start shooting when they get within 1/4 mile of the blind !!!!
