    Wister Snow Goose

    It’s possible, worker sleeping areas, seed area or trailer parking area mice taking bait and dog eating a dead mouse. Saw blue green algae news articles at other locations. Salton Sea had a die off in 2919 and thousands of waterfowl died I think.

    Wister Snow Goose

    FYI. Talked to someone named Tim that went to Wister and he just had to put his shorthair Maggie down. She wouldn’t eat and started vomiting with some blood. She just went down hill from there. They tried everything to saver her. This is the 2nd dog that died at Wister that I know of ...

    Wister Snow Goose

    FYI- Us and Ts were going off last weekend (ducks). Did a little scouting along public roads and the club areas where snows use to roost at night we’re gone. At check station you might be able to hear the snows at adjacent closed zone ponds. I got 1 shot at a high snow and missed. Snow hunt...

    I got drawn for Kern and Wister. Thought I would get on at Union but guy in front of me got it. Thought the snows would show at Wister but blanked. Should have hunted ducks at Kern. Dog was put down probably from some kind of bacteria at Y15A area. Warning at checkin station. Dogs owner...

    WTB Single outboard bracket

    Almost got a used Armstrong with a platform over the summer but someone beat me to the deal. There was a custom built copy too on BD I missed. Been looking at a cheap Gil bracket and then enclosing the transom. Got cracks in transom that I have to deal with that. Your bracket might work if I...

    Where to buy Elmer's rubber cement 1 qt.?

    Not Elmer’s. But this was at Upland Home Depot. Maybe your local Walmart has Elmer’s small bottles for cheap.

    Where to buy Elmer's rubber cement 1 qt.?

    I believe I just saw a large can of rubber cement (I’d have to confirm, Elmer’s) the other day a Upland Home Depot. Don’t recall seeing it there before in the glue/fiberglass area. I thought to myself who heck would need a large can like that.... You should call your local Home Depot store to...

    Yep, Wister Devil Mud. Anyone, go out to retrieve a bird in a pond, then step into a fricken mud-pot (I think they call it) ? It happened to me over 20 years ago (I was a lifeguard and scuba dive master at the time, thank God). I think most other greenhorns would have panicked and drown...

    Coyotes and those evil crows really hit the turkey population in so some areas. I was hunting near Henshaw and saw a group of crows separate newly hatched turkeys (whatever they are called) from the mother and eat them all. Reminded me of seagulls and newly hatched turtles getting eaten before...

    If you have a trailer in the Wister campground there was flash flood there wed. and everyone is basically screwed. Hunting is still on I think but who knows what weds - TG weekend will be like with new rain. I like hunting in the rain, the game wardens don’t like to get there boots dirty.

    Yes, at Wister. I guess I must be really lucky get check so often. That’s bad luck on your ticket. I was up at Sac and almost got a ticket several times for not coming back right on time (over a mile hike in to my favorite ponds and I typically put out a large spread). That’s work

    Yes, I eat them. Tastes better than steak sometimes. Think there is a fish and game office near seal beach. Maybe some migrating geese stopped off at their friends house were hunting isn’t allowed. Why do they almost always check my license, etc during the best part of the day when the...

    Thanks, think with Sonny Bono (Hazard, etc) total with Wister was 80. I guess 100 count was a little high. 2 years in a row, I should have hunted opener after swearing I wouldn’t. Think things are getting a little better there.

    That looks good. Trying to get Carl and Allan (Wister campground) to hunt the promised land up there for years. At least you made it up there. I seriously kissed the ground when I saw all the specks and snows up there for the first time. Think Carl might be up for it.

    Best hunting rifle/caliber

    Last time I did some research I was between a 7mm and 300 WSM (don’t ask me why a 300 Win Mag isn’t better). I was looking for the longest shot and lowest drop. 308s are consistent, I just thought if I made an error I wouldn’t be as far off. Of course then you have to buy the right bullet. I...
