I was going to post pics of the ducks Sled and I shot but I see he beat me to it. His pics are better quality than mine anyway. I really need to get an iphone 4 just for the hunting pictures.

It depends where I will be hunting... might be in the TRF area or local. I'll let you know if something can work out.

Here is a solo hunt from this morning plus some bling, my hunting buddy didn't make it out.

Elwood- I have to stick with Gadwall because of the white band markings on the wing and the head is shaped like an Gadwall...they have similar colors to the Hen Mallard though. Well who cares, it looked like a great day out on the marsh. smile

OK greast I'll go with and its a duck probally a Gadwall cool

Final tune up for NoDak. Dog work is good, shooting is OK, hope a case of shells will be enough. Be nice to see some color vs all this MN grey that I've been finding.

Here are the ducks me (I'm Larry), Darrel and Darrel shot last weekend.

We bagged 12 quackers Saturday including 3 canvasbacks, we also shot gadwalls, widgeons, ringbills.

The mallards escaped our errant shots. They came in and left un-scaved! Dangit

We had the whole area to ourselves if you can believe that.

Sunday we get there a little late due to some barley pops tasting so good only to find 5 groups of duck hunters already there, so we have to go down to the very last spot we could find but we ended up with 5 ducks including a real nice mallard that ran into Billy’s shot.

We also had the perfect mallard shoot as 5 greenheads circle us once then hear me call when they were behind us and come in perfect 20 yards above the decoys only to drop one and miss all the rest! And the one I dropped swam away and I lose it! ERRRR! If was easy, it wouldn’t be any fun!

Oh well, it was a good weekend to say the least!

Nodak, I was there for 6 days. Mostly diver hunting because the mallys were nowhere to be seen. Just as we were starting to get discouraged we got turned on to a field for our final hunt of this years Nodak trip, and let me tell you what, it was like a fricken mallard tornado. We actually ended up with a 6 man limit by 9:30 AM. I think we only had 3 or 4 hens and the rest Greenheads, some northern migrators in the mix, and we each got a pinny. I have never been a fan of field hunting, but now I most surely am.

Nice! Field hunting is a blast for mallards, it's fun watching all these mallards just swarm in like a tornado. I've never hunted in NoDak for ducks but looking to do a trip there sometime soon. Thanks for sharing.

I believe a "brace" of birds means two, or a pair. Just semantics. Beautiful picture!

Yeah, a brace is a pair. Usually talking about a male and female pair...

Quack, nice mix there. Beautiful eagle head! That at your grandparents farm?

      Now is there a locomotive somewhere in the lake to find?
    • SkunkedAgain
      I had a pizza when the new folks took over, and it was not good. However, most everything that I have had since then has been really good. I had the walleye tacos this weekend and the weekend before that had the italian beef sandwich. My general sense has been to stick with burgers and sandwiches. They did badly overcook my brother's walleye sandwich and fries the other weekend, but it was a busy night so I get that it happens. They seem to have good crowds every night, so maybe kitchen staffing is an issue.   Last Sunday (a week ago) around noon there were only two girls working at Moosebirds with a line 10 people deep stretching out the door towards the street. My simple guess is that it's a struggle to find enough workers but that could be a naive assumption on my part.

      Sorry hit the wrong button.... For a place to stay on the Minnesota side of rainy your options are, Thunderbird lodge, Island View lodge or Sha Sha resort. All are 10 -12 miles east of Int’l Falls on Hwy 11. Another option is the new hotel in Rainer which is 3 mile east... I believe it’s called the Cantilever Hotel. Each has positives depending on what you’re looking for...   As for fishing...the walleyes are starting to transition to deep water. I went out for an hour Saturday evening and caught 2...the largest being 25”( in the picture) My wife and I were out from noon to 5 on Sunday (yesterday). We were fishing jig and minnows. Caught 18 walleys; 5 in the slot 14-16”, 1-18 1/2” all the rest 13” or smaller. Did a lot of running around to find active fish. Caught fish in 20’ and saw a lot of mayfly caucuses floating in the water still and a lot of minnows. Water surface temperature was 78 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s only going to get better...

      While the grandkids were here we got pizza from the landing.    Good thing we got two for the four of us.  Their 12 inch pizzas were about 8 or maybe 9 inches.   And over baked on top of that.   Pushing 20 bucks each.    I hope the rest of the menu isn't as disappointing as those pizzas.

      If you found it again, with the warm water it would be easy to check out with a mask and flippers.  relatively shallow, close to shore.

      I found another one at the entrance of Black duck bay but can't find the image of that one, someone told me there's one off the south side of Hinsdale Is. but haven't been able to locate that one.
