    We had a very good day. My partner and I punched full tickets. We had 4 widgeon, 1 teal and the rest were all grey ducks. Oh yah, my partner shot a bootlip!:dv The two of us killed our 12 and the other four guys totaled another 18 I think. I believe it was a total of 30 ducks. The strange thing was no woodies and no mallards. Grey ducks were the variety of the day with widgeon and teal sprinkled in. And, ole Greenjeans showed up when I had 5 ducks and my partner w/ 4 in the bag.:eek: That was the very first time I had been checked in over 20 years of waterfowling. I promptly asked him if he knew my bro-in law who is a CPO himself, and he replied yes, he did. The funny thing was, the dumbazz misidentified 2 ducks we had!:eek: Oh well, didn't matter, we were cool. All in all a great opener. Going back in the morning for more!!!:tu Pics of the carnage will follow once I spend some time to figure out how to post pics and some sleep is had. Good luck tomorrow!
