If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses.

I'm taking my cousin out and its first time out ever with my retriever. I'll be working the video camera and calling birds. I'm probably more excited than he is. He's been shooting for the county 4H team, so if he's on his game we should be done pretty quickly.

I'm taking my nephew out. He's been "hunting" geese with me for about 3 years with his bb gun. Cutest thing ever to have him pop up out of a layout blind with his Daisy Hill.

My 11 year old will start his 3rd year shooting at ducks. He is graduating from his single shot 20 ga to a 12 ga pump this year.

My 11 year old daughter and I will be out and about. This will be her second YWD. Last year she was shooting a single shot .410 and got her 1st duck (hen mallard) out of the air. We were paddling a small creek jump shooting and she made an awesome crossing shot.

This year she will be using her new Mossberg 500 Bantam Youth pump 20 gauge. That should increase her odds a bit.

Probably decoy hunt in the morning and do some paddling after that.

Gotta squeeze in a nap before we hit the ground blind for her 1st bowhunt that evening. Maybe I'll just take a nap in the bow blind? wink

This will be my 12 year old daughters first year hunting. She handled gun safety very well and passed with flying colors. We are very excited for the season to start, birds or no birds it will be a great year with my little gilr.

Good luck to all!

Good Luck to everyone taking their kids, or a friend out! I have always looked forward to this Youth Waterfowl Day when I was under 15 years old, great memories with friends and families that I will always remember.

The best one is that I shot my first duck with a band and shot a double back on my first youth duck hunt! The limit was 3 ducks, If I remember right.

Post some photos too smile

I'll be taking my cousin out tomorrow morning. It will be his first time hunting ever I think, he's pretty excited. We will be at my parent's property NW of Stillwater. Water level is really low this year, and my dad hasn't been seeing many ducks at all. I definitely have my fingers crossed.

I will be out in the Lonsdale area with my son.

This will be his first year and the scouting we have done it should be a good.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
