Traditions

5 posts in this topic

Well what are some of your traditions? I have one that we have had for years... It's meat loaf tonight for supper and meat loaf sandwiches in the blind tomorrow. That has been a long standing tradition. And this year, for only the second year my son and I will take our hunting buckets and go sit and watch the sunrise with dad at the cemetery. Miss ya and love ya dad. Will be the first year that little black dog is not along on opener to frown.gif Good luck to all tomorrow. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Sorry to hear about your dad and dog, duckslayer.

Our crew has a tradition before every opener. Beer, booze, and BS out by the campfire the night before and after the days hunt. Lots of story telling by the old guys about how they shoot all the birds but give the kids credit. Then I have to remind them how I win everytime we have a clay shooting contest. grin.gif

Our is leaving early Friday afternoon to head down to the Marshall area (And I'm still at work because of a stupid wedding tomorrow. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif). Having some beers and booze and BS'ing most of the night with the same group of guys at the same place every year, and then getting up at 4am to head out to the slew.

This is the first time in 7 years I wont be making it....not counting a few years ago when I missed opener due to a broken ankle I sustained while wrestling at a golf tournament a two weeks before opener. That fall was no fun!

Thanks Ely. There was a time when I would not sleep at all tonight. Now it is just not the same. Don't get me wrong I still love duck hunting it is just somehow not the same. Maybe there will be some new traditions in the future that will make it that exciting again. Heard from young son tonight and he has to work tomorrow so I will be on my own. If ya see a guy pull up in a gold coloured S10 Jimmy at Oak Leaf lake tomorrow that will be me... stop by and have a cuppa coffee. Good luck guys! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
