Tealboy,

That was me, my daughter and a neighborhood kid with Jeff today. We had a great shoot, 27 teal and one spoon in under two hours. You guys missed the show when you left, there were thousands (I'm don't think that's an exageration) of teal that rafted up right where you were set up.

Jeff posted up a couple of pictures and a video of Justin shooting his spoon on the Fuge.

Glad to hear that you're getting into some birds, sounds like you guys are having fun.

Tealboy - you should have buzzed down and said hello!

Like UtahSprig said, it was a quick shoot. I think we spent more time dealing with break away ice flows and making a couple of long retrieves (my breathing is still not back to normal :lol: ) than we did waiting for ducks to come in.

What's funny is we took Darrin's spot (I think it was Darrin) and they had a lot of goldeneye's as well. For what ever reason the teal turned on while we were there and it was fun.

Too bad you couldn't have stopped by, it would have been nice to see ya.

Just relieved to see that nobody smiled in front of the camera... Could have affected the balance of nature. :p
No S*** !!!
Why do 90% of the mugs you see in hunting pics look p.o.'d or disinterested?
I'm sure my face looks like that after most days spent hunting but I never have piles of birds or anything worth slapping on the wall. I take that back...I'm usually laughing about how horrible I am at this silly sport of ours. Enough rambling -Cheer the hell up or quit being too cool or whatever. Life's too short!!!

wingmanck - Smiling is not allowed.... we are all serious hunters. Actually, somehow, not smiling became a tradition in my photos - you should see how hard people have to work to not smile! Plus, what tealboy said - if that were 27 spoonies and 1 teal on the front of that boat, we would have been grinning ear to ear! :rotfl:

Oops, I guess me and my dad broke major protocol last year when Spooner took us out :oops:

Spooner, thanks again for the hunt, it was a great day! :wink:

Actually, we aren't smiling because we were laughing so hard that it hurt to smile by that point. If you've seen me shoot, you'll know there is plenty of reason to laugh :shock: :wink:

I tell ya what, I'm getting a bit old and too fat to be chasing them birds like I used to. Spooner and the kids were wishing they had an E-collar on me to get me to pick up the pace on the return from a few longer retrieves.
