Yeah Buzzsaw, great pictures. That one picture of Loki going after the goose is awesome. It really shows Loki's emotion. It brings back some great memories of a past lab/retriever we had, so thanks.

Very nice Matt

You should have seen the ducks and geese on the lake this past weekend. We found a corn field where they were going and sat there and nothing. Went and checked the lake and they were all gone. Oh well, but i put away the decoys on sunday, so i think i might be done for the season. Time to chase deer and yotes.

Yea stuff is definitely shifting around on some of these cold nights. I saw one roost go from about 3K honks to 100 in like 2 days. Too bad you guys didnt get into any the other day.

Dont put away the decoys yet! Still plenty of open water and birds around. We're not going to SD until the week after Thanksgiving. It might get real ugly in a hurry down there.

Shae-I'll post up our opener pics one of these days. Just haven't gotten around to scanning them. Give me a ring if you guys find a big feed. Later

Awesome pics Sartell. Where in SD were you? We'll be going on our annual pheasant hunt near Aberdeen the week after thanksgiving. We saw some tornadoes of mallards and quite a few geese last year, but nothing like that. It's hard to concentrate on roosters when you've got that going on.

This is kind of off topic, but how was the pheasant hunting? grin.gif

F&F- thanks for the compliment. We stayed 2 nights in Aberdeen and one in Webster. Our group consisted of 6 guys and 5 dogs and overall we did fairly well considering we only hunted public land--not all of us shot our limits but we had a good time.

I would avoid hunting NW of Aberdeen due to very dry conditions. Also, it seems like the Walk-In areas in this part of the state were all baled and now they are basically just pasture. I would stay south of Aberdeen if I were you.

Watching ducks/geese was half of the reason I went in the first place. My ND trip fell through because of such and early freeze up up there so I was pumped to be able to watch flock after flock of birds come over while out stomping for roosters. Would have been nice to hunt waterfowl out there but I'm going to hit it pretty hard around here for the remainder of the regular and late seasons. I definitely caught the pheasant bug though--considering heading back out to SD Dec.20-23rd for the second part of my license. We'll see though.

Good luck out there and don't spend all your time at The Body Shop in 'deen.

Thanks for the heads up. Glad to hear you had a good time and got some birds. I'll be sure to let the rest of the crew know a little more about what it's like out there. We got some connections for a lot of private land out there near Leola through my uncle. Hopefully we can find some cover holding those big roosters. There will be 6-7 of us and 3 dogs. Should be a great time as always, I'll get some pics and hopefully get 'em on here.

Good luck in the last of the waterfowling, always the saddest time of the year frown.gif

Now that the season is wound down for me and I have had time to go through some pics. My camera was giving me some problems this year so did not get as many pics as I would have liked.

Well we got a pass for a Thanksgiving morning hunt and was it ever foggy in the east metro. We travel a fair distance to get to the area we like to hunt and it was nearly impossible finding our location without following the lansdscape of the land. With that being said, all parties did not agree which direction to go so we waited it out for a bit on a small island... that didn't last to long once the ducks started flying... a few images from the "event"

Waiting and wondering.

And since we had time to kill, a few images during the downtime.

Hey Flick, some day when Chuck gets some money, he'll own that motor in those pics! LOL

Inside joke. But I must say, without that motor he woulda been bellied up at a bar somewhere instead of hunting. blush.gif

Great GREAT pics guys! I just told a buddy tonight that I picked one heck of year to focus on bowhunting versus duck hunting..... NOT!

      Last spring for the first time we noticed birds being blind shy.  We're really gonna need to brush blinds in this spring to see if that makes a difference or not.   Been hunting these birds for 15+ years and last year was the first time we noticed this.  Funny though,  they had no issues walking a few feet past our parked trucks.  🤔

      I'm grateful for my dog too.  She listens better than my kid, she's calmer, she generally doesn't bother me, and when its time to go fishing or hunting, she springs into action with more excitement than I do.
    • monstermoose78
      This weekend i will spraying my blind with tick repellent, my hunt clothes, and boots. So I will be ready

      I would love to join can I get the information. Can you please call me at 9526877929
    • whateverisbiting
      I will be going to my cabin a couple hours drive.  I will bring all my food and gas with me and not go to any stores there.  If I still have to work from home I may work there self quarantine for 14 days.  Then you become a local.  Then you have to do the same thing coming back home if going out to stores there.  Small towns have few hospitals and very limited equipment.  That is a real concern.  But hopefully will not blow up with very low population density.  Can't wait to put the dock in, have a G&T, and put out the lighted bobber!

      Thankful for my faith in God, my great wife, I have 3 nieces and a nephew do not see them too much. Be thankful for family all of you. I don't have hardly any family left but really enjoy those nieces and nephew when I see them. Thankful for the guys and gals on this site. I have learned lip reading even more and that is a huge help for me right now. I'm also thankful for my  Yamaha boat motor best thing I ever bought😀 Thankful my wife loves to fish and comes with anytime she can. She is laid off now but boy do I love being with her. I work second shift Mon-Thursday she works during the week and every weekend it feels like a second honey moon!

      I am grateful to have my faith in God, without my faith life's trials would be much more difficult to navigate.   I am grateful for my family, they are source of a great deal of strength.  There is nothing like raising my 2 favorite people on earth everyday.  I screw up alot, they have always given me a reason to keep going forward.  My wife is the most amazing woman in my life.  She has to be great, to deal with me everyday. Grateful for my father and my sister, we have always had a close family, but going through my mother's battle and ultimate death from cancer this last year, I know it would have been next to impossible to deal with without them.  I can't wait for this virus to leave so I can give both of them a huge hug again.   I am grateful for the gifts of my life's journey, the great moments and the bad, everyday is great day, we get so few.

      Well I got out the last three days and I need a vacation from myouting lol. Friday we fished am for tulibee and ended up with 19 before switching in the afternoon for crappies. Found a deep hole and the slabs were STACKED UP!!! Hole was 30-36 feet and fish were 18-bottom. Had to drill a ton of holes and stay mobile. Literally you'd have fish in one hole and 5 feet away nothing. Average size was 12 inches with a few 14s.  Saturday tried for tulibee again and I think we got 10 for 7 of us. Switched to the same crappie hole and first 5 fish up the hole were tulibee lol. After a while we found crappies but just couldn't find them. Switched to 4 or 5 other spots then we finally found them. Thought were perch because bottom 5 feet were solid fish. Crappies were averaging 11 inch. Had to stay mobile and drill a lot of holes. kept enough for a supper.  Sunday morning my buddy and I went after big tulibee and got a late start (9 am start). We started by targeting spots people hadn't been lately. Instantly we had 3 on the ice. It was weird they were coming out of the mud. After hour half we quit graphing them so took off for new spots. We ended up with 4 fish biggest two were 4 lbs 4 oz and 3 lbs 12 oz. After that we took off for crappies again. We parked the ranger and guess fish wanted to hide under it. Literally had 10 holes drilled with 10 feet of the ranger and we just kept circling the ranger. We did film a YouTube vide and hopefully the wind wasn't too strong for the audio.    Sadly I doubt I will make it back out again.

      Mine is my wife and our 5 kids (youngest is 29). All are independent and have given us 7 grandkids who are a hoot. Not to mention all of my great friends. I'm only 60 but I've gotten in a massive amount of fishing and hunting since I was 5. Feel sorry for the guys who did nothing but work most of their life thinking they would have their fun at retirement. Doesn't usually work out. I tried to balance work, family and adventure. If I died now I lived a full life but wanna see the kids/grandkids grow up. Their old enough now to have fun with and my days of having to dig a new outhouse hole are over. My son is a huge help now.
