Game warden called today and said there are so many ducks using one of our fields he'd gotten 5 phone calls about it. Hopefully changes our season trajectory.

Today is the last day for ducks here, but I'm staying in.
Last goose season opens Feb 8 and I'll get after those a little.
Time to think about steelhead now.
Then turkey opens in April, and away we go..

All I get to think about for the next three months is work! But Spring Bear when I get back home.

Work is good!
Where are you going to hunt for the bruin?
And which knives will you take?

Yup it pays the bills!

Here in Montana

I'll skin the bear with a Triple B, and break the carcass down with either a Big Chris or Marauder K.T.

Our season ended yesterday. It couldn’t have ended soon enough. Worst season I can remember.

I spoke with a buddy that is a regular at hunting our coastline. He reported a pretty dismal season, one of the worst ever. He said that he know of hunters that hunted our coast and never flicked the safety off. What the heck is going on? Two VERY bad seasons, back to back. We had very few ducks inland as well. Lack of cold weather up north surely has something to do with it.

From what I understand, the early migrators showed up in November, got educated, and no new arrivals came to liven things up. I killed one woodie in October and another on January 31. Could've shot a few mergansers in between, but that was about it. Maybe it's just me, but NC is a far cry from what it used to be for a shotgunner.

This is exactly what happened in Arkansas. Early November had a good number of birds move into the region. They turned into resident birds and became very call shy. After that early migration, nothing else came down. For curiosity sake, I’d love to know where the ducks are.

Strick , when I lived on the cast, Gtown, I had a deterrent method to keep the gators away from my Chesapeake.
