Default How'd your '19 season go?





No boat, no dog.

I was a terror on teal, only managed 3 measly greenheads.

We have a 5 month old GSP that I'm currently training.

Found a couple fields we can hunt, did just fine on the Canada's.

I'll get a boat within the next year or two, depending on how many mallards I see this season and next.

May not be worth buying a boat, didnt even hardly see chit for mallards this last year.

Good early. Shot Woodies, Pintails, and Mallards. The Greenheads were here in force early in the season. By the second weekend of second season the mallards I was seeing left here and looked like they showed up in the Golden Triangle of Mo. After the first wave of Mallards came through it was tough up until the last few days of the season.



I never did get on the teal. Maybe this year.

I'll switch ya!

Teal are fun, but I'd much rather target greenheads-much more fun 2 call

As stated above about the middle to end of october the mallards were here in great numbers and we did pretty well all year long. Banged the hell out of the geese. Big slate for 2020 with trips to Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri on the books! Season will be here before we know it.

We got hit with a crazy cold front in mid-october and the birds completely bypassed us.
