In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Got a bunch of my last min projects done before the opener. Even had my helpers involved... amazing how much quicker it goes when you have several hands helping out!

We had a great presentation last night by  Rob Wingard  on the private lands program. There are 74 sites in region 4, Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties. 34 of which will be ready for opening day. they will show up on the Go Hunt site as they become ready. 4800+ hunters use this program in region 4 every year. There are survey cards in each blind make sure to fill them out they help document its use and hunters success and satisfaction.

The Youth Hunt was a success. 22 hunters 17 parents, 9 blinds 180 decoys , 400 ducks harvested and one goose. A big Thankyou to the Swinomish and Edison Duck Clubs for opening up for the youth! Rick Holt and Rich Sibka over seeing each location.

The Farmed Island Boat tour was also a success. 7 boats ferried the crowd over to the island unit where WDFWs Kern Cosgrove did a walking tour.Afterwords the crew piled back in the boats and went for a jaunt around the island visiting Steam Boat Slew, and Mill Town.

I sat right behind Special T.

Great organization, more should join.  They are likely putting on a duck slam event for members, join to participate.

The discussion revolved around doing a test run for members only if you've been on the fence, or just need a little nudge to join you should. This great ideal will likely go whole hog next year after some beta testing.

The next meeting is Tuesday at the Conway  firehall. Come meet some other hunters and maybe some nuggets on how the local hunting has been.

The main thing is to get you out of your comfort area to hunt for some birds that you would normally pass on and to have some more fun while your doing it.

The example I can give is my youngest son. He's decided to participate in the adult slam. He only has 2 birds left to go. So now when we are out he only looks for black ducks flying! It is quite funny when its just mallards coming in cause he's all bumded! What a great problem to have!

So get with your friend and send a email to WWADABBLERSLAM@gmail.com Get enrolled and have some fun...

Once you are enrolled its as easy as take a picture of yourself and your bird and emailing it to the account! I'll keep track of your success.

They seam like easy birds to get but I'm willing to bet that you only shoot one a season on a few of them.

So A few questions I'm sure.

1) Do I have to shoot all in one Day? NOPE you got all season, heck who even knows where coots are!!!

2) Do I have to be a member in good standing? YES, So pay your dues. You can send it to me and I'll forward it along. (I'll be checking).

3)Youth slam, so does that mean boys and girls can enroll? Yes they can but it is supposed to mean they can shoot drakes or hens (realizing they might not get out that much). Also for only $10 for them, so get the kids signed up!

4) I would like my kids to get in on this one too (thanks for clearing up the sex thing) do they have to be registered? YES either on their own or a family membership.

a. Can shoot drakes or hen's.

b. Cost for your slam $10.

5) But Im not a WWA member (SHAME ON YOU!!!)? Well sign up, send a email to WWADABBLERSLAM@gmail.com and well get you straightened out.

So get your crew together and get enrolled! It would be good to have a better standing then your partners!

I hope your reading clear down to here cause this program is a great way to go after some birds you don't normally shoot and will get you to try some different things. Hunting should be fun and that is what we are trying to do with this one. If you have any questions then send and email to WWADABBLERSLAM@gmail.com and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Be stoked about the season and always be safe out there!
