Way to go Hoyt! Looks like you guys had a pretty successful trip. What part of the state were you hunting? I've hunted down there in the snow a few times and although it makes for some pretty pictures, I'd much rather be hunting in single layers.

Congrats on your success. I'll be going out there on the 22, in the northwest part of the state. If you don't mine me asking which part of the state did you hunt?

Delzz7 we where in the norhteast part of the state.

Sorgy no decoy's I have not used a decoy in NE this early in 6 years.I do not even bring with anymore.I shot both out of the blind which is kind a first for me.I have taken most my birds with the bow out of the blind.Some aggressive calling it seems to work better when they are still flocked up.I pulled in both the lead hens for my birds.I copied her and then added more and that would get the girls fired up and come in looking for me.Loud cutting and yelps and the hens would do the same.

    • I prefer Hedley Lamarr    
    •   Lol been making them for years.  Funny you were just able to "get it".  
    •   Yep only you and the club "get it".  
    • He was looking better but then last night happened and it reminded you the last couple seasons have been just bad after a promising start a few years back. Heck I might even swap him for one of the Jets goalies, they all have been terrible but with a competent D they might work in a pinch.
    • D2E learned how to make his own memes, this should be entertaining.
    •   (D2E, returning to check his deposit)
    •   Yes, please. I have no faith in Kuemper even in spot duty. He really does have the talent, but he's too much of a head case. The Francisco Liriano of hockey? Lol. Last night was a dumpster fire (although that fourth goal wasn't his fault, it still rattled him--we can't have that mentality on any level, even if he sees the ice very infrequently).
    • Sounds like we have pretty serious interest in Latavius Murray from Oakland. I'd be all for that. Good runner, decent receiving back, and good pass blocking back. AKA, a complete RB and a 3-down guy. At 27, he's not a super long term solution, but for 2-3 years I'd take swing at him. This draft is solid at RB, so we can draft and develop while Murray and McKinnon hold down the fort.   As for AP, I have so many good memories, and he might even be poised for one of those bounce-back type years where he rips of 1300 and 12 TDs, but I just have to believe that should be done somewhere else. He flat out doesn't fit this offensive style. We need a more well rounded back (Murray or someone like him). Hang up your spurs in Texas, AP. Thanks for the good times.

    • A lot of people don't get the political extremist either, probably more of us leaning away from the parties than people doubling down on them, not to mention the 70 some million that just watch form the sidelines. Just because people actually voted for idiots like Trump & Clinton doesn't mean they were happy to do it. One could even say they were forced into it which all of us really were because of the systems in place. But hey you keep on spinning it any way you'd like.
