2017 Waterfowl thread....post your successes here!!

Didn't see anyone start this one yet, so figured I'd put it out there. Share your success photos and a brief story here!!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

First two pics are from opening day with my Dad, brother and I. I shot 2 cacking geese over decoys in the morning, then later we snuck up on 3 specks in a field and jump shot all three.

Last picture was a two weeks ago when a friend took us to the potholes.

Couple of the hunts this year. Just really getting into the waterfowl now that big game is finished. Figured with my username I had to post a couple waterfowl pics.

Last Friday, first duck of the season. But my first day hunting ducks was Thanksgiving, and I haven't hunted ducks for about 25 years. So just getting one duck was a good day for me. Should've had four, but my shooting seems to be a bit rusty. Got to pull the trigger six times.

Sunday Hunt, Had to hit what you shot at but ended the day with a pretty decent haul for the Snohomish valley.

Been a couple weeks but got back on some birds! Found some greenwings that wanted to play with a few mallards!
