    I know many do not like to post up reports due to the dreaded internet scouter. But I love at least seeing other folks' hunts. So throw a picture on here of your week two hunt so we can all enjoy your success! I have a very relaxed hunt in mind today and due to the tides will not leave the house until 9 am. I will post separate thread with this week's movie (should it all go well) but I will come back here and post a picture as well. I would love to see your pictures so throw some out!

    Killed another limit today. Torrie did much better! She is short dropping now but she is getting the hang of things. Video will come out tomorrow. :)

    Last weekend's opener was perfect weather for my wife and daughter! I think I harvested a hen Cinnamon Teal, but not sure as I know its rare for a Blue Wing Teal to be on the West Coast

    Widgeonman,

    Thanks for starting this thread. I too always enjoy what folks post up. You contribute consistently and I always have fun seeing what you've been up to.

    Had the good fortune of taking a band in the Yakima Valley last weekend. Been a pretty good drought with the bands so it was fun to get back on the board! Few large resident geese as well as a pheasant. Not a knock em dead weekend but a great mixed bag amazing eastern WA sunsets and more great memories with the fellas.

    I've had a couple of good hunts the last two times out. Not many birds at all, but I shot straight and managed to eventually get it done.

    A 2 hour afternoon limit that would have been much quicker if I could have got on the second and third birds in a flock. Really missing my old gun right now.

    No pics but the wigeon are in, in large numbers. I lost count of the flocks I saw today and many of them from 50-150 birds. I'm going to hit them again in the AM. :grvn Will probably sift through some flocks looking for eurasians while they're still uneducated. :pra

    Now how long will they stay? Hopefully till Jan! With an El Nino year they might not scatter off the salt and to the sheetwater.

    They will be here until they head north in April. Where I hunt if I want I can shoot a steady diet of wigeon all season after they arrive. I really have euros on the brain so this may be a full on wigeon season again like 4 years ago.
