    The "MYSTICAL ZONE 3" REPORT :: Given the expansive flood waters currently covering the Valley, some guys wonder about "success probabilities" if they make an effort to come to the Iowa "West Coast" to chase ducks. Recall I made the same sort of post last summer. We had serious floods in 2010...
  4. Waterfowling Stories
    Share your 2010 story or stories. Please share the good, bad and ugly. Don't be afraid of sharing something. We will either pat you on the back or laugh with you.

    Well it looks like my contract in Sioux Falls is going to get pushed into duck season. :? I will not have my dog or access boat since have no place to store either up here so that leaves the Big Sioux out for a solo hunt.

    Does anyone here know of a good book with a compilation of waterfowling stories? I thought I saw one in Grey's Sporting Journal, but I can't find it anymore. Each issue Grey's will dig up a sportsmen's story from an old field magazine, sometimes going back to the 1800's. The duck hunting...

    So I'm sitting here listening to some of the smartest people in America talk about money...more specifically hedge funds, and I can't help think how glad I am that I don't know as much about money as these guys. True, I probably would be a lot richer, and I may have a lot more land and...

    How many have you gotten so far this year??? As of today I got my 3rd of the year. Of course they all have different covers but same stuff. Kind of a waste of paper and print in my mind.

    Waterfowling The Heartland; Take a closer look into waterfowl hunting in the Midwest. You will be surprised at what you find. Ninety-nine times out of 100, the first thing to come to the hunter's mind will be whitetails. Sure, some will say turkeys, and others, those living in Iowa perhaps...

    Ok guys which ones are your favorites???? Me personally I like the HS Take em videos along with the older duck commander videos and a few of the buck gardner videos. I enjoy watching them but in the summer time it is hard to watch them because they make me want to get out and kill some.
