This what our party did. I watch from afar today which was a different perspective watching this geese fold in the sky and drop like stones. When I did get in the blind with the guys...clear skies and conversation. Not a shot fired be me.Maybe tomorrow.

I went out with some friends today and we ended up with nine ducks ( Mallards, Spoonbill, Teal and Widgeon) and three Geese. I had a flock of Woodducks come in and missed the drake. We could tell we were rusty. we missed a lot more than we hit :rolleyes:

Great morning with family and friends for the hunt.  h2ofowlr and his son joined in for The hunt. It was good to meet another member and make some great memories as well!  The geese weren't cooperating like we wanted but the ducks made up for it.  8 man limit of ducks with snows and cacklers added in.   :tup:

No pics, but we had our best day ever.  My son packed a gun for his first time and we bagged 2 mallards, we had wave after wave coming in and working the decoys and the rule was I wouldn't shoot until after he did.  We will have plenty of years where he will shoot circles around me but for now I'll cherish the memory of him jumping out of bed at 4:45 and the first time we called and shot together.

Ended the trip with 3 ruddys, 2 ring necks and a wood duck. Overall a great start considering the weather they were predicting!

Had a fun opening weekend. Set up for snows yesterday and shot our 4 limits along with 14 ducks. Got my dad out again this morning and had snows in our face and limits on the ground in no time! :tup:

Great to see a waterfowler get success at a young age!
Looks like a good start to the season! Great job!

Three of our members had a good opening afternoon on a Know Where To Hunt field

We were on the X yeaterday. One short of a three man limit. It was a really amazing hunt with planning and scouting coming together with birds landing exactly where you planned for them too.

Slowed down in my neck of the woods this weekend, but still managed one and I'm happy with that and a great morning outside!

Bluebird days is hard hunting around here. My guys had to hunt most of the afternoon. It should be better on Tuesday. The wind will be up around 15-20. They'll be moving then... good luck!!
