    Hey all! Just got involved in some waterfowl here in North (where I live) and South Missouri (where I go to college). I was hooked from the first buzz over my head. A group of Gadwalls flew over and I was pumped. I have always been a big Archery and Firearms deer and turkey hunter, but...

    Considering how awful of a year we've had duck hunting, I've had two good Thanksgiving weekend hunts. On Wednesday we killed four. I got my first bufflehead on Wednesday and my buddy got a mount-worthy drake bufflehead. He also shot a redhead and I got a bluewing that day. I hit the bluewing...

    New guy looking to go and poke around next weekend to scout/hunt if birds can be found. Im in Iowa city and if anyone has any helpful advice or wouldn't mind a tag along I'm willing to drive an hour or two.

    Well I had to work all weekend and could not hunt but the wind blew from the north like an SOB.... so was the hunting good? And any ducks moving.
  11. Northern Zone
    Just figured I would see if anyone is going to be getting out and hoping for some birds! I haven't been up to the north zone to hunt since early season goose opener. Anyways, we'll be hunting on a private pond in the mornings and maybe field hunting the afternoon/evening. What is everyone...
  12. Field Hunting
    Well good luck this weekend guys. I have to work during the day all weekend so I won't be killing any geese. I'm from central Iowa, and I used to have some spots back home where I could go out in the evening and pass shoot a limit, but I haven't found any spots like that over here in Eastern...

    I took a few guys from work out and they hunted geese for the first time. Had a handfull of flocks finish within 20 yards and knocked down 16(14 in pic, we had a pair come in right after picture time lol). Went out the next morning and shot 14 with a bonus band! Had big ducks...

    I haven't seen any jewelry pics from this weekend. Did anyone get any? I heard they banded about 400 woodies at Coralville this year. I thought for sure someone would get one or two.

    Had a good weekend this weekend. Got 3 on Saturday but seen Thousands of honkers! just was not on the X and they didn't want to be persuaded. Sunday we hunted a loafing (not roost) pond that geese have been using for the past couple months. We pulled in several flocks but the wind was not...

    It's always awesome on a Friday night to get a call from SHazam debit card fraud dept. It looks like there has been suspicious activity on your card. Have you authorized payments for Big O Tires in Scappose Oregon? Ummm...No I didn't What about the tire stores in Utah? Umm..Nope OK...
