Here's one that I thought was the best photo from this year so far...

From Oct. 1, 2006

This poor guy fell on Saturday morning.

Was hunting alone so I think there is a better story behind the picture than the bird. smile.gif

I had to set my camera on a canoe paddle that I had balanced on a folding chair I brought with.

The timer gave me 10 seconds so it was a quick hustle to pick up the goose, gun, and look excited

at the same time!

I need to get a little tripod one of these days.

What great duck hunting weather... 80 degrees, 30+ mph wind from the south, and bluebird skies!

Here's a pic of my 9mth old pup Gunner with his first retrieve. I felt like a proud papa when he placed this widgeon in my hand on his first day of duck hunting.

Here's our best photo of the year...In my opinion, it doesn't hold a candle to Elwood's pic of Joey though. Any picture of a kid holding his first duck is golden! Congrats Joey!

I was visiting Seattle at the end of the summer. Wanted to get out on the sound for some sea ducks and some salmon but both were not in season. I bet it was a once in a lifetime experience.

Heres to Midnights last Hunt as well. My golden retriever Hunter is turning 12 tomorrow so I know how hard it is when they want to come along so bad but can't. I'm sure it was a very memorale hunt.

I took my twelve year old nephew (Nate) out on opener weekend with his grandfather, he managed to make his first experience a very good one. He also shot a Drake Wood duck. laugh.gif

Nice shots Michael. If you read the first post, you'll see that those shots should qualify. Nice Job.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
