How has your duck hunt been so far

Recommended Posts

I haven't been out duck hunting yet this year but i wen't to my spot this morning not hunting just to check it out i was there before light and around 7 am i had so many ducks coming in if i had to guess there must have been about 800 birds but this year i had retired my dog and my hunting partner just cant get out  so i don't know if i will hunt these birds

May ol' Gunner's retirement be long and happy !   Hunting mallards & teal in the corn fields & ponds can be dog friendly or dogless .... having trouble today keeping those feathered quackers away from my fishing line !   Good luck if you get out gunner !

that sucks gunner.  You have him on Apoquel or some kind of anti-itch?  Allergies sucks bad and it's even worse if you and your buddy can't get out together to hunt.

Thanks duck&wine it sucks bad he loves to hunt i might take a day to hunt my spot in the field if i can get them to come to the cut corn field i might take him out a day or two

but they seem to just go to the creek and the mud in the creek stinks bad so not sending him in there

Ugh.  They love it more than us.  Hopefully, you both can get out.  I completely understand WRT allergies as my lab has been battling over the past year but I think he is ready to go now.

That's a bummer about your dog gunner. Got out spur of the moment last night for the first time this year. Didn't get out until close 6, only saw a couple geese from a distance and not a single duck. We were in Wainfleet area on the river. Still nice to get out though.
