    I just had to start a new thread, this place is dead. Thank goodness the season starts tomorrow. I have been busy scouting, getting the decoys ready, bought a boat and got it ready, tuned up the motor. cleaned the gun again. Now for the fun to begin. I hope everyone has a good opening day here in the interior.

    How did opening go? I had a short hunt but logged 2 pintails. I should have got more but had trouble recovering the second bird...took me half my morning. Had to go buy a boat because apparently I'm going to need it here.....

    Good for you guys. What's the temp up there now? I'm stuck hunting dove in 90+ temps with high humidity. Not comfortable, would much rather be cold and hunting ducks.

    I'm jealous. We have an early wood duck/teal season starting this Saturday and the temperature at shooting time will be around 75.

    Totally jealous. Our early teal season opens Saturday and we'll be fighting skeeter, cottonmouths, and gators all weekend.
