Lazy and rainy Memorial Day for us. We are grateful for the sacrifice of those men and women we honor today. The wife and I celebrated by cleaning the house and smoking a rack of ribs for supper. As we settle in and turn the tv on I think to myself how lucky we are to live in a country that is free. So I figured I would start a thread where we could share pictures of whatever we feel like. I’ll start off with one from a late season goose hunt on a sandbar last season. I hunted on my own and landed the first 12 geese that flew by and shot my 3. If you look closely you can see my momarsh invisachair tucked away in the willows. It was a perfect blind for sandbar hunting last fall

being as our spring snow goose season was a bust this year; here is what I hope to replicate spring of 2020. this was a hunt with three of us out of our pumpkin seeds. we had 30+mph winds. even getting them in close; we still only killed 4 or 5 per flock. with that wind they were out of range in a heart beat. if we would have had a little less wind; it easily would have been a 50 or 60 bird day. photo credit goes to the camera pro; Camo 870 and his equipment

I was recently married in April and for my bachelor party my friends and I went on a guided hunt in South Dakota. We had one decent day while we were there and with the way this spring was that’s about all you could ask for

The last hunt my brother and I went on last season and the first geese shot out of the pit we built.

Still stoked about that day.
But it wasn't even the best hunt last year.

Gotta love it when they do it in the snow.

End of the season snow hunt with my brother. The small spread worked well on the few birds that were around.
