Who is taking a kid out to get em hooked on ducks?

 

I am my nephew will be over tonight and he is shooting my 870 with a youth stock. I found a pile of 3 inch number 4s. For up close and personal woodies and teal number 4s are good. I have some high density number 2s if the geese get to close.

I will be taking my son out in the morning. The weather does no look the best with strong SE winds and clear skys, but we will give it a go! Would be great if he got a couple. He will be shooting my old Winchester 1200. We will have fun!

The youth hunt was pretty fun. We had a decent spot with a few birds around. Jack missed a few but did manage to drop a Teal! I was surprised at the low number of Geese around up here. Only saw 1small flock about a mile away. We did watch a really nice buck walk along the other side of the pond. He was a dandy!

My buddy had his son out as well and was only able to score 1.  But it was a drake mallard on the wing this time.  Made his son’s entire day!

 

I’m hearing (and seeing) low goose numbers all over central MN this season so far.  The only good news about that is I don’t feel like I’m missing out so much with having to stay focused on the kids’ wedding prep.

Lots of geese behind my house. The feed in the ball fields of Mark Park.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
