    This morning ended up being a waste of time and a very cold morning but still felt good to be out. Also knowing that the birds didn't fly this morning we knew they would fly this evening. We hunted till about 10:30 this morning and then headed back out to a field about 2pm and set up to run...

    Quackwhacker and I hit the river this morning to try for some honkers. Set out 18 decoys and waited. Didn't wait to long and a loner came right in backwinging. Needless to say he didn't leave. About 30 min later another loner met the water as well. Saw a good number of birds but they were in one...

  7. Waterfowling Stories
    Had a nice little evening hunt, an IAW outing at it's finest. TheDuckSlayer, Ghillie, Wendlwacker, and myself hit a field in the Ames area. Our field goose hunt turned into a duck hunt, as the geese flew super early and didn't seem to want to commit, but the ducks didn't mind it one bit.

    First I would like to say WOW on the decoys, beautiful birds! I got a few hunts in with them over the long weekend, but the divers didn't seem to be working my spread very well for me this weekend. Friday I did end up with a pair of hoodies that dive bombed pass. Here are a couple of pictures...

    Does anyone run tests or trials in the spring summer? I am going to try and run some more this next year. Ran my dog in the Mississippi valley HRC test last year and had a pretty good time. Just wondering who else runs them.
