I use to think that on alot of fields i would see, but whats the worst thing that could happen they say no. But what if they say yes. Have had places that i did't ask on and then saw people hunting them now that really chaps a guys behind.

Yeah I am ready. Got a new blind, gun, and some new fields. All I need to find is some decoys and I will be all set. Nothing better than goose hunting in my opinion.

just because im 17 doesnt mean im not afraid to ask and well theres no way to hunt it cause the lady who owns it is in the nursing home and the guy who hunts all of her land is the biggest p-rick in the county. one year on the 2nd weekend of shotgun deer hunting he yelled at my sister when she was pulled over on the road taking pictures of the scenery near his house because it was a frosty morning and things looked pretty and he was telling her to tell my dad to get off his land now. which my dad wasnt even hunting that weekend because he had already filled his tag and no one from our party was even within a mile of his property and we no not to trespass and we know not to get involved with him what so ever

Well, no mad dash to get ready for hunting this weekend. Unfortunately, my FIL passed away a couple hours ago, so we'll be headed out to attend services, etc.

You guys have fun and bang up a few for me! wink Leave a few for the 2nd weekend though if you could. smile

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
