duck hunting is hilarious?

5 posts in this topic

Openning weekend last year I took a guy out hunting, never been on a lake when its dark, never shot a duck or anything out of the sky. well we were going to our spot at o'duck thirty and we ran thru a flock of coots, so that scard the %$#& out of him. but it only gets better. we were just gettignready to fall a sleep for the long waite for the noon openner and a duck just came i between the both of us and he about jumped out of the boat and he asked what the H%^& was that I we never forget how hard I laughed it was the funniest thing ever and I will never forget it and he won't either

now he is a die hard and I'm glad I brought someone into a sport I love

Lets make some people laugh while the season is coming into full swing. the ducks are on the move and its only oct 2

My b-in-l I and are sitting in the boat, we've dropped a few and are making sure we have a solid count and know where the birds have drifted with the wind. He says we have 8 down and proceeds to show me where he sees them. I say we have 9 and show him the extra. He says no, it's only 8 and it must be lily pad turned up in the wind. We go over the shoot and can count only 8 birds that we know we downed.
So, we decide to call it quits, pick up the dekes and start picking up birds. 1, 2, 3.....7, 8, 9!! #9 turns out to be a timberdoodle that must have committed suicide by following in the teal he ended up floating next to and managed to make himself a 'double'!

It was a wilsons snipe. They look almost exactly alike. Duck, Snipe, Canvasback, Id... ? oops! Eyes open boys.

Fishface, the teal he was following came in straight and low over the water right at us into the wind. We never saw the bird behind him and he just got caught in the shot string. I do know duck types and can tell a duck from a snipe AND it was during legal shooting hours so please don't imply differently. It was just a funny accident....

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
