    Who would have thought that in the middle of January I would be shooting clays with some buddies in light jackets, no hats, or gloves? What a gorgeous day. Did anyone else get out today?

    Went down to the new pit blind, bright and early yesterday. It was great having all my old huntin buddies in the new blind. Conditions were perfect, just as NOOA had predicted. There were quite a few ducks right at daybreak. Had a nice bunch of 35-40 mallards bail in and I whacked the only two...

    Took off work at noon today in hopes of killing a few ducks before season closes. Arrived to find that 95% of the marsh was froze up, decided to hike it in anyways and found a pocket of open water. Set out a dozen decoys and the mojo and hunkered down and waited. Within 5 minutes I had a...

    I got up this morning with intentions of catching crappie and killing geese. But reality told me that the ice would be too thin, and the geese would be in a feild I could not hunt. I dorpped my son off at school at 8, and headed to public water to give first ice a shot. I got there, and it...

    Went out on Coralville this morning. Found a deep cove and went clear to the back. At about 7:00 the teal started to pile in. I've hunted this cove before, it has been a hiding spot for all the stale ducks. We let a good size group land and get comfortable. 2 more groups came in so we started in...

    Here are some pictures of my solo hunt this morning. I shot two geese and the two doves that ventured a little too close. I also had to go for a swim to get one of the honkers. The cows have killed a dog before and I forgot to grab a fishing pole. I'm just glad it's September and not November!
