I can attest that late season Specs are apparently kitted by the same armorer.
Type A’s are overrated.
There’s a lot of birds in Ca if you look for them.
Most goose rigs look exactly the same.
This game starts expensive and gets expensiver.
Factory ammo and other hunters still suck.
If I move 3000 miles across the country to be within easy driving distance of Tulelake and the Klamath Basin .... then it will go dry and be devoid of ducks.
Thank God for Western states Big Game hunting.
I learned I am getting burnt out more and more every year on the goose game.
I learned if I am sitting in the duck blind dreaming about fishing, it’s time to go fish.
I also realized I am more excited to chase Turkeys this spring then late goose season and I’d never thought I would ever say that.
I learned that I am glad to have put in as much effort as necessary to get good birds with my dad in his retirement when he was able. He is now unable.
Had I not gone to maximum effort I would not feel good right now.
I learned that refuge hunting has gotten even more difficult than it used to be even without the difficulty of accommodating an aging mobility limited man.
It’s not a given to get great shoots just because you are willing to walk a lot.

I learned stick to basic calls mostly and time it right, and don’t get too creative.
I’m always relearning the value and skill of hiding effectively.
Above all though I can be proud to say I documented photos and a few video of many of my old mans hunts over the last years of his retirement.
(I just thought of an old friend I need to check on too)
Hunting is so much more than just a bird.
If anyone is still able to hunt with dad, even though when you are younger maybe it feels like a pain or like you could do better hunt harder with a buddy, believe me you’ll never regret helping an older man just get out there first of all.
And, that opportunity is gone before you know it.
Without my dad I might never would have hunted or fished etc.
Treat others how you wanna be treated on refuges.
It might be a guy and his dad.
No matter how long you spend setting up 1200 snow decoys and how bad the snows want to work some ******* will ride his quad into the ditch by the road on the next property and commense to skybust at every flock headed for your spread.
Skeet 2/ Light modified ……money.
Well, out of this barrel at least
The more time and money one has, the more mallards he can kill.
Hunting with a new pup that you trained is a joy. You get to celebrate in his every retrieve.
Never thought I would experience a dry LK in my lifetime a year ago.
Never thought I would experience a dry Tule Lake Sump A in two lifetimes.
Back to back tragedies.
A dagger in the lower Pacific Flyway!!
Man has the ability to do great things in nature while at the same time we have the ability to destroy eons of God’s bounty in less than a decade.
Fooling a natural species to come within clean killing distance still drives me.
This sport is getting incredibly expensive
