Some of my buddies and I are in the process of trying to get a snow goose spread together, just wondering some opinions from you snow goose guys.
Have you had much success w/ repainting old duck and goose floaters for snows? Much success decoying the birds to these type of decoys?

I have to admit there were a couple of tears shed on the very last hunt this year as this would be the last Jr. season for Riley.

I am trying to paint/touch up a bunch of decoys. I am using an airbrush. Does anyone know what type/brand of paint would be best?

Our hunting seasons ended on Jan 28, so now we are getting back into dog training and running in Hunt Tests, mostly HRC and possibly one or two NAHRA and AKC tests.

Then it dawned on me..... What the hell is going on with shrimp? Are local better? Are white better? Are pink better? $16 in one place for supposedly the same shrimp at $11 at another? What's going on here? How do I figure out what the best shrimp are?

I hunted with Annie last Wednesday for her final hunt. This morning I had to have her put down by my good friend and veterinarian, Mike Suda, who has hunted with Annie many times.

It’s 37 degrees in the darn Everglades. Don’t want to get out of the truck. How did I hunt in way below freezing weather growing up?

Somebody turn on the global warming.

Hunting in the grasslands fog for old folks isn't as easy as it used to be. My hunting partner today was Tommy, who I've hunted and fished with for a number of decades. We really realized that the two of us can't see, hear, or move as fast as we did in our younger days.
