    1. If you have committed a crime you aren't getting in Canada, 5 of us drove up and 3 got across.

    2. No hunting on Sundays

    3. Ducks are stupid and geese are still fairly smart.

    4. Upland game birds are a Canada hidden secret.

    5. Canadian women will sleep with you within 4 hours of meeting you.

    6. Hunting 30 min after sunset is spectacular!!

    7. More waste grain in Canada then most midwest farmers will ever haul to a grain elavator.

    8. Farmers must work 22 hour days to get all their crops planted in the spring.

    9. Hunting in Canada without a dog should be criminal offense.

    10. You can see mulies, antelope, whitetails and shoot ducks, geese, huns in the same field.



    Things I learned getting back in to the good Ole USA

    Better register your gun with US customs before you go or you might not get it back into the USA

    Don't try to sneak 3 slices of turkey you bought at the local store in KS back into the USA

    Don't bring any stubble on your blinds back into the USA

    Surely don't bring duck jerky back into the USA

    Its more of a pain to get back into your own country and to leave it.

    Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories, each one has their own set of laws, you can't make "Canada" generalizations, especially on a "Canadian" forum.

    I know most of this is in jest, but maybe think about those you offend before you write it.

    Why would he? He was after all traveling with two convicted criminals. Foresight and the pondering of consequences of action do not seem to be traits of this guy's "crew".

    One guy had 2 DUI's and the other guy had $700 worth of theft. We left them in a small town and picked them up on the way home.

    1. Check the tire pressure AND the lug nuts before you leave.

    2. The farmers are some of the best people on the planet, even if they can't/wont allow permission.

    3. No matter how hard you try, you can not tell or prepare someone for the number of birds you will see. You also can not convince them how good fresh Specks taste until the first meal.

    4. Just because a town is listed on a map or road sign, do not expect gas, groceries, or even an open business. Some VERY small towns up there.

    5. 60 miles can mean the difference of seeing 400,000 birds, 95% of which are specks, or 1.5 million birds, 95% of which are snows.

    6. Just because there are birds, does not mean there will be Canada's. We identified 0 Canada geese up there, in our two areas.

    7. Huns and sharpies are really quick in a 30 mph wind. Conversely, cranes flying into the wind are REALLY slow.

    8. People up there will go out of their way to assist you, and are more forthcoming with information about birds than 7-11 clerks here are about where to find the soda machine.

    9. Weather forecasts up there are no better than in the States. "Clear skies through Thursday." We wake up to rain on Thursday morning.

    10. There is a reason why farmers hate outfitters, and why I will never pay an outfitter for a goose hunt. (Not all outfitters are jerks, there are some good ones, but those I have met up there are jerks with a capital J.
