Ducky Christmas???

7 posts in this topic

So, did your significant others think duck and goose hunting when buying your Christmas gifts? I was lucky to get a new square bottom decoy bag, Redwing boots, and a $40 gift certificate to Scheel's. What did the rest of you get???

my brother so graciously replaced my old primos wench (that he "accidently" lost in the cattails a day after i limited out on greenys and he missed every shot he took) and i also got one of those puck shaped deals that vibrates and adds wave motion to decoys. do those really make a difference? well i guess ive got nine or so months to ponder!

I got one of those goose decoy chairs for field hunting. I also got a couple more floating goose decoys.

hmmmm, A new camo face mask, that will never see the field. It's kinda cheesy.

A floating gun case

New lightweight parka

And a Mr Heater that is green and black. Not the typical red/black one.

Then I just picked up a bunch of hard water gear. Gettin the itch to fish.

I recieved a new drake moc turtle neck, a new Foiles meatgrinder goose call, a spring loaded trap thrower, and a shell holster.

Made out pretty good this year. Can anyone recommend a good goose calling CD for beginners?

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
