Just got around to seeing this thread. I am a PE and work in flood control. There are a lot of national firms out there that would snap up an experienced licensed engineer in a heartbeat. Quite a few allow some form of working from home so there are pros and cons with every job so can you find...
1st vehicle I bought - 1987 toyota tacoma 4x4 xtra cab ( another vote for the 22re engine) right off the dealer lot. I lived at home during college so my "rent" money that I saved allowed me to pay cash and drove that thing nearly 200k miles before selling.
Don't know what I am
I started this sport/lifestyle in my 30s.
Whenever I see water - I check for birds
When I see birds I watch them land ( and look for the nearest spot to hide) ( this applies to city parks, sloughs, refuges, or a parking lot)
When I hear geese, daylight or dark, I look up.
I am working at 14th and J in downtown Sac and snows just passed overhead at 50 yards. I am on the top floor. Seen a few other flicks as well over the downtown area.
As I type this about 7 waves came over. 200 birds plus. The building to my north is on the X.
Only had 1 triple in my life - on woodies. Group came in, gave my kid the first shot. He goes to the plug, my buddy goes to the plug and they don't hit a thing. I get three.
I need to find a better place to hunt as I have only had twice a big swarm of teal come at me. One group came from behind...
Does anybody know where I can buy a federal duck stamp. Want to take somebody out but can't find the stamp..,
Big 5 staff says they are out
Sportsman's warehouse - nope
Walmart - Nope
Four post offices (including Royal Oaks) - nope
Any thoughts as to where to go?
Wish I had my dad's old hunting vest. My dad was an interpreter for the Italian war prisoners in WW2. One of the prisoners made him a hunting vest. He used that until the 90s when it just wore out. He stuffed a lot of pheasants and quail in that vest.
At least some of you hunted a refuge. heck I tried to get on a refuge at 11:30 and I was number 60 on the wait list....WOW! Hope the rush is over next time I visit.
I left and was fortunate to hunt somewhere else and killed a few ducks.
