Calling All Callers

If you think you're a great caller, come and help out. If you could use a little work, don't be shy, we're here to help. The point is, it takes years of practice and experience to be able to trick a duck into the range of your dead eye aim. Coming to these sessions will speed up your journey of becoming an excellent caller. Thanks Glenn for putting this together-HZ

Calling All Duck Hunters,

The sessions are scheduled as follows:

1) Thursday, October 26th, 5:30 PM. QUACK - The quack is the foundation of all calls, except the feed call. To be a good caller, you have to be well grounded in the basic quack. We will work on this as a group and individually. Ryan will work with those that need to get the right amount of growl or grunt into the quack. Did you know that you can tell the maturity of a duck by their quack? Next, he will teach us cadence. How fast or slow you quack has meaning to a duck. more »

Watch the Shooting Time

I just want to remind everyone that you need to keep an eye on your watch and be aware of the proper shooting time each day. 
Just a reminder that we need to stay above board with the AGFC regulations regarding shooting time b/c it's an easy way to get a ticket. 
Shooting time from Dec. 24-Jan 1, is 6:41 and it's 6:42 through Jan 29th.

Out with a Bang..the Best Hunt I've Had Yet!

I had the best hunt I've had all year on the last day of the frst split.  Andy Bowden, Andy Garrison, Johnny Nanney and I killed 15 mallards, 7 teal, 2 gadwalls, 2 snows and 1 speck this past Sunday, Dec. 4th in the Section Two Pit.  Kota made some very nice retrieves and we all had a great time together in the field hunting on a windy and cloudy day.  We did have to be careful to lay off the hens after 4 of our first 7 mallards killed were hens.  However, we ended up having a great brace of birds. 
Respond with the best hunt you have been a party to this season.

Gettin' After It

That's just one description I have for those of us who hunted every day the opening week (Egg, Mouse, Vern and me).  We had a great time bustin' birds in the chops.  A real highlight was the lack of the "mah-velous" shoveler.  This was by far the best opening run I have had on "big ducks" in quite while.
Write and let us all know how your opening week went.
