    I think I'm with you guys now that I've done hunted here. But I do love a light snow while you sit in a blind watching mallards fly over because you've got your limit, waiting for the geese. But thats the past. I enjoy bringing coppertone for my balding head.

    I'll take the fake duck hunting any day.

    I spent my youth growing up in South Dakota, and though the swarms of mallards coming into a cornfield will always thrill me, the -20 days with a 25mph wind will never be more favorable than the nice 60 degree sunny days where I can nap in the sunshine in short sleeves after a morning of shooting a limit.:tu

    Boy, my grass sure looked a lot better back then. I though it would last 10 years! How often are you supposed to replace that stuff?

    That was a good day to be hunting, the grass does look good, maybe it's time to replace it. When are you going out again. Give me a call

    I'd call a thirty minute limit good in any state.

    And that guide you paid for was great. He put you and Kurt on those birds for the mere price of 6 Samual Smiths. ;)

    Yeah, the grass looks a little weathered this year Kurt, but not as much as Boone!:cry

    Think it's time to get him an apprentice so they can hunt together next year! :dv C'mon! Puppy's don't take up any time at all! :no

    I'd rather shoot mallards but when in Rome:tu Think I'll take my new 24 mph 12 footer out this weekend if I feel better.

    Kurt, I ordered a new prop so you better be ready. The 9.9 is gonna eat your lunch!:dv :dv :dv

    What exactly makes everyone think mallards are so great. Yea they are a big duck, but so is a Gaddie or Pintail and a Can is even bigger. In my opinion if you just shoot mallards you are limiting yourself.
