    Got my boat done and named (Wing Reaper), got a good pup up and coming that is shaping up to be a great little dog (34lbs at 8months old named kimber) I have two waterfowl trips planned and deposits paid (Rhode Island eiders and Missouri snow geese) I still need to put together my new layout and build something to keep me out of the water on it. I'm thinking plywood and blue board. Decoys are looking good shotgun is cleaned and ready to go. Got a case of shells and a new duck call coming up from my cousin that makes my calls for me. It's shaping up to be a great season.

    Man, I wish I was up there with you guys, I'd much rather be shooting limits of alaska brown ducks than zero full color ducks in MD. Hunting here stinks unless you own land.

    Opening day is on Labor Day this year, keep waiting for it to time out on weekends and open on weekdays where there are a few less people for the opening. I lov opening day and duck hunting, but i hate summer ending in Alaska. Summers can be great and winters can be long. Hope my new boat is finished for the opening or I will have problems. Bud

    Bud isnt lance making your boat. I have alot of work to do on the ebad got to wire it up and get it camoed up. Get the decoys out and make sure they are all ready to go. Plan on doing a couple of trip prior to opener to get some fire wood at camp.

    I tried it early down there last year and only seen about half a dozen harlies. But after October 1st I always do really good.

    I'm flying up in October for my Kodiak bear hunt. I'm planning on bringing my shotgun to go out hunting the hayflats while I wait to fly out to the island. I'll just have to give Hugh a call, if you even mention duck hunting around him he's in the boat and ready to go! I'm hoping I can get a few sea ducks around the bay I'm hunting bear in too. Maybe I can get lucky and get that elusive King eider!

    My dad just sent me a pic from the slope of a pair of kings. Says he's seen about a half a dozen different pairs up there this year

    LOL bud. My conduit base needs to be 12 inch. Higher then what I have them now. Off hand I think total would be 37 inch high. Been playing with math on this building process.. I'll get it right one day!
