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!

    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it   
    • Auuuug, that suks!  Really nice area up there. 
    • Yards lookin' good, boober!
