I went out for a quick hunt on some bigger water near Fergus today.

Some larger flocks of mallards, and ringers too.

Nothing much wanted to decoy with the exception of hoodies and a surprising number of cans.

Hunted way out west yesterday afternoon 'til sunset. Thought it would be a slam dunk.

Saw very few birds, and most of those were EXTREMELY decoy shy. We need some new birds.

Walter,

North of Fergus is a little out of my stomping grounds.

From what I saw this morning, I think I might switch to field hunt geese for a while

I went deer/pheasant hunting over the weekend, drove through Appleton and didn't see anywhere near the number of hunters we usually do. The campground is usually packed, but on Friday it was empty, and Sunday there were maybe 6 rigs in the lot.

On all the lakes and swamps and pretty much everything we checked out west, there were very few ducks to be seen. A handful of flocks of geese were migrating south, but nothing really impressive.

Went out friday and saturday, no ducks around! Saw about 2,000 mallards using a cornfield, talked to the farmer who owned the land but we couldent get permission. He was a real nice guy but I guess someone else already had permission. Besides that we dident see much, we got 3 hooded mergansers, 3 gwt, and a pintail friday. Hunted a cut bean field saturday and shot 3 geese. Only decoyed 1 flock of four, and dropped three but all three were banded. That saved the trip! The birds lit in the pocket about 15 yards away, I doubled and my buddy got 1. He was dissapointed that he missed the other considering the three we shot all had bands, I bet the one that got away was also banded. Lots of geese around, saw plenty of EPP's and cacklers along with the usual giants, even saw a couple small flocks of snows but no ducks to speak of.

Saturday morning ended up with one gadwall and saw a few flocks. On Sunday morning I ended up with 5 ducks and 1 hooded merganser. Sunday was the best hunting I've had this year. There were still the same amount of ducks that I've seen all year, I was just set up in the right place. Other than those ducks I didn't really see a whole lot. We defintely need some birds to get pushed down.

Went out this morning in north metro. Got two reheads and saw a few buffies, and a flock of divers alomst came to us. Saw some mallards, but nothign much, and surprised by the lack of geese. My brother and Grandson did miss a nice fat sawbill smile So I got to raz them a bit.

Surprised at the lack of ducks, and I was not expecting it to be great, but really few of them.

Pretty dead in central OT county, but I heard reports of some good numbers of divers that trickled in over the weekend..

Saturday yielded a few flocks of mergansers that decoyed so nice(didn't shoot..) and 2 redheads that came in without hesitation. I took the drake, let the hen swim. Saw a few other flocks flying..

Just in time for deer opener this coming weekend, the weather looks like it's going to change a wee bit. Canada will be getting much colder, and looks like we may get some cold (and snow storm?) next week... bring some birds south!

Good in NW minnesota. Shot limits of mallards on Thursday morning and Sunday morning. We also shot limits of geese Thursday, Friday and Sunday morning. Lots of birds around.

Went on Thief Lake Saturday morning, not many birds but sounded like alot shooting to the NE of us. All other hunts on fields. Pictures in the 2008 waterfowl photo thread.

      For fishing lately I’ve been watching mostly Muskie videos. I’ve also been known to watch Jason Mitchell.  For hunting I watch the hunting public and the hunting beast. Both are great and work hard for what they get. I also like the DIY sportsman and in the fall will watch chasing November. Chasing November is much more commercialized that the others.

      Grew up on a farm. Small building on left pic was a smoke house. Dad (or Pa as we knew him) raised hogs. Bro & I would sneak in the smoker and eat the small knife cut strips of un-done bacon, we both loved. During summer family would go to Stewart lake with cane poles to catch bull heads. Biggest catch was 186 and was considered as great Food. Smaller tractors were hand crank start, didn’t have batteries. At dinner (now Aka lunch) we listened to a WCCO Cedric Adam’s for grain prices. When Corn & Beans went up a nickel per bushel meant next 3 days of hard sweat labor shoveling grain out of granary (building in pic 2) into the double clutch shift truck to go to market. In 1950, dad decided to winter in Florida, sold all livestock, pack 10 kid in a station wagon and headed south on a 6 day trip. At gas stations going threw Ala. and Ga. boys used the bathroom with the “Colored" sign above the door. Being from MN we had no clue about southern segregation. My friend's dad hobby was fixing cathode ray tube TV's where I spent countless hours with him learning electronics. In ’59 I brought our first family TV home which I actually fixed. The countless hours paid off with working 40 years at Control Data. In late ’76 early ’77 as a hobby, built a self contained PC computer before the Apple II came out. Almost got me fired as I was a Test Engineering manager and not in development. A few things I haven’t done. Got sober in 1977. Haven’t tasted a wine cooler, no clue what Light Beer or craft beer tastes like and have no desire to find out. All this stuff was invented after I quit drinking. During the day my favorites were Oly beer, IW Harper bourbon and any cheap Gin.

      Times are crazy, but I am thankful. 😊   I am blessed.  This was a beautiful evening last summer.  I am in Good hands.  I have a Hope and a Future.  Hoping to hit the shore of the Missi this evening for a “therapy” session with the kids and hopefully the suckers will be running.  I’ll keep ya’ll posted.  Stay safe, friends.

      Raising and working on Tobacco farms in Richmond Eden valley  Paynesville area. Hard to believe but was real popular in this area when I was a kid. In fact I spent my summers off school working at a relatives farm. It was sold for Red Man chewing tobbaco. Pretty neat process. Seeds put in Hot beds raised gardens with cheese  cloth covering. When about 5 inches high plants picked and planted in rows behind a  tractor planter similar to a potato tree planter. cultivated, tasseled then when ready to harvest chopped at bottom of stock left to wilt in sun. Then speared on a wood lath and hung in tobacco barn to dry. When dried leaves picked off stock and bailed in wrapped in paper and hauled to Wisconsin to be sold for chewing tobacco.
