Another great year of duck killing in Arkansas. I was there almost 2 weeks. Going back the last weekend in January too.

Nice work man. How were bird numbers this year compared to others? Seems like reports are all over the place up there this year. Some guys are crushing em and some are struggling

As far as setting up in the woods, it depends where the ducks want to land that particular day. If it was a clear day, we saw thousands of mallards flying.

SledNeck how far do you travel on average when you hunt in the timber? Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

5 mins from the landing to 15mins. Then sometimes u can drive to the hole and sometimes u have to drag boats 600 yards

I thought your "how's your liver" remark was a joke about salt damaging my liver. As far as booze, man, I'm a lightweight these days. I only drink more than a couple beers at special occasions...like hunting trips. Long story short, I'm a cheap date, tomorrow starts my five day trip, and I'm gonna be hurtin the next couple days

What's your firewater of choice?

I hear that. The lack of a hangover that you get from better stuff when you're waking up at 0330 is worth every dime

Awesome way to finish the season! Too much green for me though. Gotta through a little variety in there!

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
