The Duck Hunter's Refuge, aka The Refuge Forums, is the leading online community for duck and goose hunters.
Being a relatively new goose hunter, I’ve gathered, for instance, traditional shell decoys are effective in the late season during extreme cold spells and/or snow covered fields, because it is common for geese to lay down in those conditions, as shell decoys present.
I have a load of them Guns and Goodies got my 870 wingmaster there no tax no paper work back in the "HEY DAY" When geese were still laying Gold Eggs.!
Fast forward to Saturday night and a fun dinner at Woolgrowers in Los Banos. After a tough nights sleep we rose and picked our blind and headed out. It took her a few three shot salutes to figure it out but when a flock of redheads came cruising through it all came together and her first duck was on the water.
Last hunt of the season went well shot a limit of drakes with a bonus euro wigeon.
...over the weekend.
Pics and reports please
Does anyone know of a guided hunt where I would have a good chance at a Red breasted merganser? I've done a lot of duck and goose hunting but I can't say that I've ever seen a red breasted mergie. I'm looking to bring one home for taxidermy. Thanks in advance for any help....
GF got her first pintail n spoony with 3 teal. First 15 min was clear n birds were all around til the fog rolled n for just a lil over an hour. Once it cleared out it was on.
Merry Christmas guys
Another perfect one
Have never done it in a lot of years in the field. Pretty cool.
