Cali's last retrieve for the season until late goose.

She also did a 500 + and another 100 + yard blind retrieves on some very lively snows.

This was my first year waterfowl hunting. I mostly archery hunt big game, but got my girlfriend into hunting this year and she had asked to duck hunt. Was a pretty easy yes from me...any excuse to hunt more and buy more gear right. All jokes aside I jumped in head first, got some decoys, a duck call, and eventually a canoe to access some more areas. I learned a ton, one is that my scouting needs to get a bit better but the season was a success. I'm terrible with remembering to take pictures so I only have pictures of the green head and the sprig, but was also able to take 3 ring necks, 1 mallard hen, 1 greenwing teal hen, and 1 pintail hen. Goals for the next year is to shoot a limit one day, scout my butt off, and hopefully be able to decoy  and call in ducks and geese to better identify before shooting. All in all I can't wait for next season to start.

Geese didn't cooperate and I was lucky to drop this one.
