Default 6 at OC





Loaded with ducks right now. I can't hunt today, but someone should. There's nobody in the parking lot.

I was being serious. It was pouring rain over there, and I don't think anybody hunted it all day. There were even teal sitting in the canal leading back there.

I was being serious, and these fools thought I was trolling. My parents live in Marshalltown , and I was driving by there with my 4 year old and didn't have a gun. I looked at 6 with my spotting scope, and there were at least 1000 grey ducks sitting on it. I was trying to help somebody out.

There will be plenty of hunters there on Saturday. Heck, maybe even tomorrow.

You caught it. With these goofy season dates this year nobody can keep track.

Was ther until dark tonight. A lot of birds in the refuge. Plenty of wood ducks and gadwall. Saw about 80 mallards on the river. Need to download the shots from my camera to see if I have any keepers.
