Cleaned out the blind today and cut a bundle of Canary grass for grassing in the blind tomorrow morning. Got my remote shutter for the smartphone last night. Might be able to post a pic sometime tomorrow.

Our morning hunt.  My boy got his first duck ever, a gadwall.  Ended the morning with 1 drake mallard, 2 gw teal, 2 gaddys and a widgeon.  Will head out for an evening hunt to try and top off the limits.

Went out not expecting much and ended up with a 20 minute limit. Pretty cold for an opener.

Didnít fire a shot. Forgot to buy my Federal duck stamp. Just sipped coffee and watched the show. Lot of spoonies flying around. Got my duck stamp now. 😀

Didnít get to hunt my usual opening day spot. I ended up with 2 Hooded Mergansers. My buddy shot his first duck ever which was awesome. First Drake Wood Duck I have seen with a gun in my hands.

I don't miss cleaning truck loads of fowl but I do miss killing them and watching my dogs. :)

I was south of Potholes, things were definitely slower for us. There were lots of teal and widgeon but the mallards were slim. The flight died pretty early too. My buddy did get a banded hen mallard and my brother hunting nearby got two banded geese. Unfortunately I did not grab any pics of their birds. It was still a fun opener as always though!

For future reference you can buy them online any time, carry the receipt and your stamp gets mailed to you.

I shot this unique duck. I also saw wood ducks for the first time while hunting.

i would save that duck, i shot one in cheney like that once and took it to the biology department and had a bird taxidermist look at it and they we in agreement it was a leusistic drake. the odds of a drake being leusistic is very low i was told. then my freezer died and i lost the bird  :bash:

First hunt of the year, three man limit and the first bird to hit the ground was banded! Not a bad start to the season.

Had a draw at McNary last weekend. Despite zero wind, the cold temps worked in our favor and we had lots of shooting. My hunting partner was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer this summer so trips like this have taken on a new meaning.  Enjoyed every second!  Shot a mix of Mallards, Wigeon, Spoonies and Scaup.

Epic gunning! 5 guys, 71 total birds x 1pm. Nice change of pace for a slow moving season so far. Got a band to boot! Shoot straight and have fun all!

Birds are starting to get stale.  Hopefully this cold pushes in some new ones.

They aren't too far away, I spent the weekend in BC and there are plenty of birds staging.

:tup:
What kind of duck is on the bottom left side with the white neck? Is it leucystic?



Should be two limits of geese in the photo, we shot enough shells.

We were think Maybe  mallard/farm duck cross

It's either that or a straight farm duck. It's hard to tell from the photo.

Bibbed mallard.  Essentially a farm or moorage duck as we call them.

Son & I have been getting a few snow and Canadian geese. Ducks have been hard to come by so far for us. Pretty fun to hunt with my boy.
