Wow, this has to be good for the duck population and for maintaining trophy size pike.

Heron Lake in 1915. Gangsters? I'm sure they shot the ducks in those outfits.

Wow, interesting photos DC. Makes you think, huh? BTW - one of our older hunting buds has pics of his dad and friends back in the day wearing ties and vests and "sport coats" out hunting divers, so they really did wear that stuff! He even wears a tie one day a year for the heck of it, always gets a chuckle during breakfast smile.gif

"Breakfast at Duck Camp" That pic is the cover of the 2007 Cabelas Waterfowl mag/cat.

Yeah, I threw that one in there after seeing it on Cabelas. I thought it looked like Norman Rockwell. I'd love to find some other artists who paint in that style. Those are some great images, very nostalgic and romanticized but idyllic and reminiscent of the old days.

i loved them all. The only I don't like is the market hunters they killed alot of birds too many. But for some it was a way of life and you just can't change something like that.

After seeing the ducks this last weekend, I hope to have my limit along with 4 other ducks hunters (all in different spots) within 1 hour of hunting this upcoming Saturday. Can't wait!!

      I remember you jabbering something about smoking some crappies at the GTG but I don't hear the best so I thought-What? They look Great!

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
