    Got into a few of them Saturday morning on public in the South Zone. 3 of us killed a limit of decoying birds. 9 GWT, 5 Woodies, 4 BWT. Did see a few mallards and pintails around too. It was a fun morning. Here is a pic of my dad and my buddy with the birds and one of the pup.

    Well after disappointing shooting this morning I am looking forward to some redemption. Hopefully there is water in my little south zone honey hole. I found a little county conservation area that isn't listed on any websites. The last two years it has been full of mallards and woodies. A two...

    What did you score? Lets try to match up the reported duck numbers on locations as reported to those who hunted the areas today. Just would like to see what folks say about the numbers reported vs to what was on the water come shooting time. Good luck guys. Bill

    So how many of you Southern boys plan to come up for the Northern operner? Just curious as to how many guys come up for it, I have never gone down and hunted the southern opener, but I should since I am right on the border. Get an extra one out of the year.

    How'd everyone do? What a morning!! We hit a private pond, 5 guys, and ended up teaming up with 3 other guys who also had permission to hunt the same little pond, and we couldn't keep the geese away. 8 guys limited out, 16 geese in a little under 2 hours. A great example of gentleman's...

    Damn boys it just keeps being good up here. Shot 18 mallards this morning & could have shot 50 if we had the guys! We landed and let go numerous ducks as I was counting & we were 1 shy of our hen limit so we didn't wanna go over that. But not One teal!! I wish we would have had some but can't...

Mikey grabbed the first one that hit the ground but it was just playin dead, he took about 30 wing beats to the head has he...

    Its going to be a really hot opener tomorrow. Who is hunting by water, and who is hunting out in the feilds? I was a little torn on what I was going to wear tomorrow also, as most of my camo shirts are long sleeve, so I decide instead just to go with camo body paint, and my spedo, and a...

    Took my brother out and heard a few gobbles. Rainy and a slight bit windy, the turkey's all went to the bottom of the hill. We left snuck on some, they went in the woods and about 9 we got a few gobbling but they had a bunch of hens. Anyone else have better luck?
