A dormant camera does no one any good, CG. When you wake yours up, you give us excellent work, so please keep doing it!

Thanks Guys! I was supposed to be in Vancouver B.C. tonight preparing for tomorrows cruise to Alaska. I had plans to really give the camera a workout,unfortunately my wife became ill after returning from Mexico(no swine flu) and we had to cancel. She's getting better now.

Sorry to hear about your cruise plans, but glad to hear she's doing better. These are great images. That second one is my favorite with it's big punch of color.

You have a path of blue color leading right to the duck with gold on either side. I'm sure it was planned that way! Talk about leading the eye to the subject. The tulips are georgeous.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I don't get a chance to see Wood ducks very often. These Woodies were in a pond in a part Mpls. where you might be more likely to hear people shooting than to see anyone shooting with a camera. wink

aw man that's terrible to have to cancel due to a sick wife,, I sure hope she's feeling better,, and that she has you to care for her,, she's a lucky gal.

I have a trip coming up in less than a month, I sure hope my hubby stays healthy for the next 3.8 weeks. (he's staying home, I am going without him)

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
