I'll share a few. Most of these were from my first year duck hunting. As you may notice, teaching yourself to duck hunt often results in two things. Hard hunts and great memories! A lot of times I'd only take one or two, but damn it was fun! Here's some of my favorites:

First Redhead (should've got him mounted):

Here's an awesome place I found in Matagorda Bay, Corpus Christi, TX:

Drake Mottled taken in above spot (still kicking myself for not mounting this one!!):

Best hunt of my first season, with one of my friends. Took my first Sprig!

Last hunt of my first DIY season:

Being a pilot has its advantages. Found this spot while flying a low-level in a helo. Probably what heaven looks like. Loaded with Woodies:

There's a Barrett Argentina?

You bet your ass there is. There's a Barrett Uruguay and Barrett Alberta too!!!

But lots of those shots are from Barrett Oklahoma.

Those Barrett's make the other Barrett kind of depressing when you get the 20 chip and end up by the fucking boat dock watching coots all morning with Jason, Ali and Odd Job :rofl:

I left out the pics of the Barrett you like to hunt at. Too many hunters, not enough chips in the coffee can :rofl: Come on October!!!!

I just bought one of Sleuster's sneak boats, Marcus and I are finishing getting hte 40hp Yamaha, pods and a new blind on our duck boat. My federal duck stamp came in the mail yesterday, I have my license, CA upland game stamp, and CA duck stamp in my wallet, the dog is ready to go and I already have two cases of #2 hevi-metal. Just need some dove loads and I'll be just about ready!

Rad! Sold my fishing yak and bought a Camo wilderness systems commander 120 to make into my duck rig. I plan on doing a full grass cover with layout blind style doors.

Have you tried swinging your gun in the yak? I've always wondered about that. I have a feeling I'd wind up swimming. A leash for the gun might not be a bad idea. Then again, it might be a real pain. Curious to hear more about yak fowling.

I'm pretty pro in a kayak :) also, the commander is kind of like a tri-hull boat and is made to stand up in. I don't think it will be a problem. As far as a leash, I think a pool noodle on the barrel will suffice.

I'm not too bad in a yak. I've only flipped my Tarpon 140 in the surf. I still wonder about swinging the gun in mine. It sounds like you have a much more stable platform. Can't wait to hear the reports on that.

Do it..:Death_To_Above: do it.

I can't wait for everybody to stay home after the first big storm!

Yeah? So you can wind up like the beginning of this thread?

Knowing you , you've got some " secret spot" all lined up. One that has a nice, gravel road and you only have to walk like 20 yrds.
