    Sea Duck Reporting

    Yes, they are supposed to issue Sea ducks, and Brant report cards as well as Snow Goose with the Waterfowl Authorization, but for some reason WDFW doesn't have either of them available yet. I've already made two additional trips into Sportsman's to check since mid-August, and you are correct the...

    The Passing of Barrett

    Marc found a 14-month-old Chocolate Lab male in Kansas that is a started gun dog, and a perfect fit for his guiding business. Pic forthcoming. Thanks all for your help!

    The Passing of Barrett

    Thanks Wareagle I sent Marc the pics and contact number, so we'll see if he reaches out. Marc has a specific need as he still guides clients at Paul's ponds even though Paul took it private, and needs a dog that can work flooded corn.

    The Passing of Barrett

    Thanks Hayden Hunter, that's exactly what every breeder I've spoken with so far has said. I might have to expand the search beyond our state. I'll keep praying that God will provide the right dog for Marc in his timing.

    The Passing of Barrett

    Last Friday, my friend Marc's Chocolate Labrador Barrett was killed in a wildfire caused by an electric transformer that exploded near his property, which burned down Barrett's kennel with him still inside. Barrett was nine months old and was in training to be Marc's primary hunting dog at the...

    How Is the “Hunt” For Shells Going?

    Local stores in the Wenatchee area are replenished, just very expensive. Stan's Merry Mart, Hooked on Toys, even Sportsman's Warehouse shelves are stocked up. I laid up a bunch as well 2 years ago, and am still working thru that inventory. I have been patterning some of the BOSS 12ga 3" ammo...

    Mazatlan Duck Shooting

    I'm not sure about diving options, but there is a lot of beaches to walk with access to restaurants along them and the boardwalk.

    Mazatlan Duck Shooting

    We paid $4,000 for both my wife, and I for 7 days of lodging, and 3 days of me hunting. The duck hunting portion was $750/day. We flew on Alaska using points, and did not do the inclusive food and beverage package as it was cheaper to eat away from the resort.

    Mazatlan Duck Shooting

    Crossed off another trip on the old guy bucket list! Incredible wing shooting for fully plumed out ducks in Mexico last week with my son in law. Mostly Teal, Shovelers, and a few Pintails. Our wives had fun all week at the resort we stayed at while we hunted for the first 3 days of the trip in...
