    Cutters, great pic!

    QueenoftheMarsh great turkey pics. You turkey hunt enough you'll have more run ins with hens! But that's the fun of turkey hunting and it's totally addicting.

    Cowgirl how'd that pig hunt go?

    Good Luck hunting ladies and keep the pictures coming.

    No piggies, but going again today in a few hours... I'm learning my new bow, I've got the groupings within an inch or less at 20 yards. Piggies are going down (lol if I find them that is)

    I got these 3 common mergansers on the MO river yesterday. Stopped at 3, didn't need or want anymore. They are just for the wall.

    I was hoping that we could take another picture like this one (from '07) this past season....

    But we didn't get quite that lucky this year, hopefully next season we can...and more importantly I hope I can actually shoot a Canvasback, since they were closed this year. :(

    Congrats on the commons!! Lots of those where I hunt, but I can't bring myself to shoot one- they're so nasty tasting. The boyfriend wants a few for the wall too - so I'll let him shoot 'em!!

    Here in the Willamette Valley, OR, we rarely get snow. For it to accumulate beyond an inch is quite the feat. Beyond that, in our NW Permit Zone with limited hunt days (Wed, Sat, Sun) the odds are so slim of hunting in snow that earlier this week it seemed too good to be true. However, it stuck around long enough that we still had a good amount on the ground this morning. I brought the camera out for a quick picture, but of course the lens was foggy in the cold. Oh well... I still like it!

    My son Marc and I have always had a tradition of hunting together on Christmas Day, ever since he was in college (which has been a lot of years ago :yes). We have never had a single poor hunt in all those years. We always manage to end up with limits. I honestly didn't expect all that great of a shoot this year, because a south wind and heavy rain was predicted......that usually spells trouble for us.

    Someone upstairs was smiling on us, because we woke up this morning to a north west wind, and man, did the birds come in nice. We finished up fairly early, and Marc killed a bird that both of us have been dying to shoot......a beautiful Eurasian Widgeon.....it really made the hunt a special one, that we will both always remember. We ended up with 2 pintail, 5 widgeon, and 7 gw teal.....a nice mess of birds for the grasslands here in California.
