opening weekend

There is not a single event in the year that I spend as much time planning for. I regret not being there for the fist shoot, but the afternoon shoot was picture perfect. The weather was great, the comradery was rich, the skies were full of propects, and the sunset was right on. I'm glad to be back in the fields, and glad its Three Rivers - see you in the pit.


be aware

just to let everyone know, be extra careful what you leave around the house.  i have a friend who has a club about 2 miles from us, and they had some four wheelers (quads) stolen last week.  im sure it was primarily because noone was there the week before the season but do be careful especially if you are the last person to leave the house.

Opening Weekend Schedule

Kick off dinner Friday at 7PM at the clubhouse with discussion afterwards.

Brunch at high noon Saturday and Sunday at the clubhouse.

We are without our staple cook, Stovall Kendrick Sr. this year, so I'm looking for several volunteers to help with the brunches. That means, committing to being at the house at 10 AM. LMK if you're interested.

Spoonbill Total: 293

Spoonbill Total: 293 - Total spoonbills bagged [Bird Summary 2004-05]

I say we should this year show some more appreciate for the faithful spoons who keep some of otherwise dull hunts lively. I think I echo the sentiments of the late Chubby Andrews on that score, too.

Our club Hunt Log record shows that only the teal treated us better last season. That said, I'll be keeping an eye out for the greenheads, of course!

Aerial Photos

Hey, check out the new Aerial Photos we've posted on the club's image gallery.
There are three views, and we need to fix the position of all the blinds so we can mark them on one of the map pictures. 

  1. Three Rivers Neighborhood. This shows just the immediate area surrounding the clubhouse, but with no markings on the map.
  2. Three Rivers Neighborhood. This shows all the blinds including Raccoon Bayou by Claypools.
  3. Three Rivers Clubhouse & Blinds. This view shows the immediate neighborhood with markers for the clubhouse and some of the blinds. We need finish marking this up with Terrabrowser.
  4. Three Rivers Region. This view is from pretty high up, with the intent of showing the placement of the club in relationship to the surrounding towns and landmarks.

Thanks to the USGS and Terrabrowser for the cool maps! These are more detailed than the maps freely available from Google Earth, in case you are wondering why we didn't use those... more »
