Only took like 3 seasons but my son finally got a green head this morning. He might have been just a little excited.

Got skunked again this morning on the
Brazos. .

Never had a skunk on that river in all the years I've hunted it. Three times and three skunks this year.

Couldn't get the pintails to work this morning and passed on several flights of teal early. But I'll take the added snows

Great hunts by all! Went out yesterday morning with my son in law and my lab Drake. We got 5 Wood Ducks in a short hunt before church. Drake is doing great. He made all of the retrieves, including one hen that sailed on us and was making her best attempt to get away on foot...lol! He hunted that duck down and dug her out of the bushes! That's the way it's supposed to work, and the reason hunting with a well trained dog is so awesome! A few more hunts and we'll be back in the hunt test game going for his Hunting Retriever Champion title this year. Let's finish this year strong! Good luck during the last couple of weeks everyone!

We were getting a little stale until that front came through on Friday night. I don’t really scout around much because I don’t like to move anything, but I drove around Saturday and found a bunch at my grandmas. I don’t get too excitable about ducks but this was a mondo wad, like +1k mallards.. They were all hitting a little 6-8 acre low spot beside a ditch about in a corn field that had backed up the night before.

Dad wasn’t going to the woods Sunday morning due to clouds so he went with me. We got out there 20 minutes or so before shooting, threw some decoys and got in the tree line. No ducks on the water.... shooting light came and we had ONE pair come in. We had to walk in probably 700 yards carrying our stuff and he was NOT entertained! He has a pit in the next field over and they were working it pretty good. I felt like an idiot!

About the time I started feeling duped & he wanted to call it (8ish), here they came. Landed a group of about 30 and knocked out 4, then landed a solid 200. Biggest group I’ve landed in quite a while. Hand hundreds circling and landing around us picking up. All I can figure is they were roosted somewhere far off?

It's obviously different down here but the mallards always seem to come in late to our setups (the few we see anyways).
