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.

      probably eagles if fishing. I think the fultures like highways. :):)

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
