    I'll be up there for the opener this year! Guess I get a leg up on all the MD guys around here. They're going to be jealous of dead duck pics I'll be sure to send while I'm there.

    Well, next year I'm working on just extending next season. As soon as the season is over in south central, St. Paul island, then down to the east coast and then down to Obregon, Mexico the to Colorado for geese into February. Then off to collect the last two turkeys of my collection.

    In Mexico, I'll be going after brant, and a mix I plumed up birds for the wall, all three teal, widgeon along with black bellied whistling ducks, Mexican mallards, and more. On the east coast, eiders, black ducks, brant.

    Nice, I'm going to have to do that mexico trip eventually to get all the teal, full plumed green wings are easy, the other two can be a bit of a challenge, especially a cinnamon teal. I did the east coast thing this year with Ocean state outfitters. The eiders are a lot of fun to hunt, and really big birds. Black ducks in some of the areas were very plentiful, and you had to be careful on shooting birds you coudn't ID because you're only allowed one per day. I think the next guided duck hunt for me is going to be Chesapeake Canvasbacks.

    I saw that article with Ocean State. I'm either going with him or the Swampers. I shot Pacific eider in Adak. Yup, big fricken bird. Just figured to close up this whole bird slam thing. Bang out a bunch of birds next year and have an impressive bird collection. Going for 4 turkeys this year, Rios, ocellated, merriams, and goulds. When going for the ocellated, maybe throw in a crested guan and a greater currasow. Someday I'll get some birds back from taxidermists. I have 23 birds at taxidermists right now. Some of those are group mounts like a hen and drake or group flying.

    You won't be disappointed with Jeremiah at ocean state. He was a great guy and had a fantastic operation. If and when I go back I will definitely be going with him again. Lots of birds good equipment and just an all around great guy.

    I need to check out that Adak hunt then. I've been looking for a place to knock out my pacific eider. Might even be able to combo it with a caribou hunt. Although I'd prefer to do that hunt around the end of the season because the birds are really brightly plumed out by then. Not sure if caribou would be open in Dec.

    I've had a couple birds at the taxidermist in big lake's freezer for 3 or 4 years. I'm pretty sure they're probably ruined by now. I'm going to have to go out and get another bufflehead and oldsquaw to replace them.
