Not MN and a few guys hunting before anyone assumes that bag limits were ignored. My first time hunting out of state in a few years due to school so it was nice to bag a few. 

With the border shut down knowing ND would be busy we decided to go early in the season mid week to avoid the crowds and we went to a part of the state many do not consider duck country. Put a lot of

Picked up a pair this morning.  Pretty slow and no ducks seen.  Beautiful though!

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

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!

nice Pinny...MN or Dakotas?

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.

      Fished Saturday through Monday on the east end. As Brian said it was brutal weather. Wind wasn’t so bad but the wet snow Saturday and below freezing temps Sunday and Monday made things difficult. Didn’t do well until Monday when we put together a 30+ fish day. Caught more than a limit worth of 14-17” fish. Kept just a couple for a meal. Lots of them in that 10-13 range which bodes well for next year.     Nothing special on the tactics. Caught most of them in one spot. Fish were scattered all over a big mud flat in between islands at 30-35 feet. Jig and lindy caught about the same number of fish. Jig caught a few more of the keeper size fish.    Fish were coughing up what looked like mayfly larvae. Is that common this time of year? Maybe it was something else?

      You mention that if an archery hunter and firearms hunter are together they are considered 2 parties. Is that the same with crossbows, which use an archery tag. Would it be considered 2 parties (and obviously could not help fill each others tags)

      Skunked Again, heavy wet snow last night been shoveling it I'd say 3"+, what ice was there yesterday is now gone in front of my house anyways, more like a big slushy, 30' beyond is open water again. I have 44 degrees on the deck right now, you should be safe making a trip this weekend. If I'm wrong PM me I send you my address and you can come punch me in the nose.

      Buddy and I were fishing just below Whalan last summer and he caught two keeper sized walleye on a Rappala.  We were pretty surprised.

      It's not a very deep lake, so it is all relative. Most of the lake is 30-40ft deep so it is a relatively easy lake to fish from that standpoint. They aren't sliding any deeper than on a bright sunny day in July. There is also not much of a fall turnover to worry about.

      Great to hear from you Dtro!  It is sad that the participation in forums like this is going by the wayside and it seems we are losing valued members constantly which is sad, but also the way of the world.  Great to hear you are succeeding in your latest adventure, but that does not surprise me, as following you for the past 15 years, I wouldn't expect anything less from you!  I enjoyed the news clip and the excitement on the young girls face as she reeled in her first sturgeon!  Keep doing what your doing and don't be a stranger!!   Take care and stay safe!  Ozzie

      came back to civilization this past sunday. was nice tuesday when i got there and got alot of cabin stuff done. wed it rained all day but managed to do inside stuff that needed doing. thursday i finished up yard stuff and did a little hunting. friday finally got 2 grouse 😊 them gonna be good!!!!!!!! sat the kid and i fixed up deer stands but holy moly rockey with that snow was it wet in the woods. finished winterizing the cabin.   for me the weather wasnt cooperative to fish, so......... until there is ice the fish are safe from me!!!!!😜 the deer need to worry though!!!! sure would be nice if this snow melted, the ground needs to freeze up some.

      Better fishing out weighs crappy weather for me.  We are leaning the October dates, seems a fair amount of the resorts on the E side close first week of October however.  I would imagine fish slide deeper on Vermillion as the water cools?
