Nice. I was out Saturday and found one spot that had few hundred geese and probably 150 puddlers. Wind was whipping so it was fun to watch them fly.  :chuckle:

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

You going to be chasin ducks or deer Sat??? 

That's one of those little tullie reed slews out in the sage brush country southwest of town, it hasn't had water in a long time. Lots of little ponds like it around this year and most of the ones I saw had atleast a few birds on them. Can't hardly wait for Sat, me and the dog are both pretty antzy to get started. During muzzy deer season he couldn't understand how dad could dress up in camo and grab a gun then not take him...

Ducks.  I was muzzy deer hunting, and now im waiting on late season as I wasn't able to find a buck.  I will be out tomorrow in the Swanson area looking for huns and quail, while scouting out all the new water holes for ducks to jump shoot Saturday.  My GSP will finally be happy to get out tomorrow, but I don't know if I will take her for ducks.  You ever need a partner, let me know.

Hunted hard for 7 of the 9 days saw a lot of does and a half doz or so 2Xs but saw probably the biggest muley I've ever seen in that area, he had to be atleasta 4X,  horns out past his ears and twice as tall I'd say he had a 30" spread atleast but spotted him just topping the rise on a canyon and never was able to get out for a shot. Went back a couple more times but never found him. Still got an elk tag so packin the Hawkins just incase something shows up close to the road before Friday that I might be able to try and sneak on. Retired and turned 66 this year so would like to get one close to the road cause we all know once you pull the trigger the fun ends and the work begins. Most of my old buds have moved on so hunt the ducks and geese by myself nowadays. If you see this white Ford parked along the road you'll probably find me close by. Going to put a lot of days into the ducks and geese till it freeze up. I don't have any wheat fields to hunt but really like the small ponds and close to the road. If you're by yourself feel free to drop by and join Chase and me. He's no TV dog but I don't lose many birds with him.

By the way if you're out by Swanson check out the west end on the west side of the road. Looks like good water back there kind of hard to jump shoot but you could get some good pass shooting.  :tup:

If you see this GMC out there, then myself and GG are somewhere to be found as well.  I've seen a lot of the ponds out there in Swanson, some have blinds on them as well.  I think it will be a good early season this year.
