Good sized flocks of wigeon are moving in.
Cut em!

Nice, I'm starting to think you don't have any pictures of birds not in multiples of 7.

Very few!  Those usually fall under the diver or sea duck hunt categories.  Those bag limits require a very mixed bag to reach multiples of 7.

KWTH Field 8 produced a 7 man limit in 2 hours yesterday morning.
Had one land in the blind... Awesome day!

A couple of firsts for me today. Ended it with 5 birds, including a drake mallard and a widgeon. Both I see people bag on a regular basis, but not for me so I was stoked!



And it was nice out, great day to get out hunting!

Quick limit of snows.  Lots of them around and spreading out after getting banged around in W. Mt Vernon for the past 5 days.
Cut em!

Seeing more green where there should be lately, beat up the snows 3 days in a row when they were coming in fresh

Got a mallard drake today. But while going through a flooded field to get him, I stepped in a submerged irrigation ditch and soaked everything up to my chest and completely submerged my gun. Any suggestions for cleaning it and preventing rust?

I have done that before. Strip the gun completely and clean throughly and let it sit torn down to dry than reassemble

Yup .. strip the gun down. Wipe down with your favorite gun lube. Let dry, reassemble. I hunt salt and do this after every hunt. Really liking frog lube right now.

Shot 6 today including my first triple, which was awesome. What is not awesome is watching eagles grab 2 out of 3 while your retrieving the first duck. All in all tons of fun today.

Don't forget the magazine spring, it will be one of the first things that rust.

Good hunt yesterday morning. Was in and out in about an hour. A nice euro topped it all off.
