2019 Duck Geese Goose Waterfowl Opener (2018 Too)

Recommended Posts

We saw way more divers than usual for this time of year and fewer mallards. There were still woodies and I saw 2 BWT.

 

We got 5 birds today with about 10 shots fired.  Lots of high ones.  3 mallards, a ring neck and a red head filled our bird bag.

 

We fished maybe 4 hours this afternoon/evening and were able to raise 4 muskies total; one was a toad.  One hooked and landed.  41 inches.

Tailgate shots of ducks is way cooler then fish pictures.

Whatevs.... 😀😀

 

Of course you did have one of my bucket list birds - a pintail on your tailgate.  So you get a little more cred with that alone.

I had a productive day yesterday.  Shot 5 ducks in the morning and then caught 11 pike, 2 bass, and 2 muskies in the afternoon.  Duck hunting wasn't quite as good as it was on opener.  I just didn't see as many.  Fishing is still pretty good though, water temp was 54 degrees.

I just sampled some goose bacon today.  It was pretty darn good.  Calling it “bacon” seemed a little off but I don’t know how else you’d name it.

 

Basically ground goose, seasoned and pattied then smoked.  Sliced fairly thin after the smoking.  Similar to how I smoke my whole breasts except the grinding part.

 

Looks like you could have a couple extra to experiment with! 

 

We shot 10 ducks on Sunday.  Ringers are definitely in.  The muskies eluded is in the afternoon.  One 30 inch pike came to net.

Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕

It was a better morning duck hunting than deer hunting. 😉
