WOW!!..got to the boat ramp and have never seen that many trucks and boats trying to get into a single boat ramp since Kansas!...Crazy..but seems most of the smart guys went camping the night before..kudos to them...I will do the same next weekend. Was insane,,,Would be nice if the guys would prep their boats on top..save tons of time. I was there at 4am and did not get the boat in the water till almost 440. Got to "a" spot as there were guys in ours..(should of figured) almost shooting time..dropped a few deks,loaded the guns and shots started coming... Lots of birds flying and great action for the first few hours. I am sure they had one hell of a day staying alive..komikizi runs no less. Tons of skybusting going on..kills me watching a bird flying 1/4 mile up and listenting to about 5 guys throwing steel at them.....makes you wonder...had a group set up about 200 yards to my left, right, behind me and in front of me. Rained steel at times....how sweet it is.
None the less.....had birds for dinner, great day in the marsh and with fellow waterfowlers..great attitudes by all seen on this day and did not hear of any problems our issues...other than the airboat sitting on the bottom..anyone know who that belongs to? Would love to hear the story on that...but assume he forgot to put the plug in the boat...either way that was not a good day for this guy, what a bummer...
Game Warden was out doing his checks and ran into him on the way in to Maud lake from the creek...ask where to go in to the creek and sent him on his way...Great guy had tons of information on the area and seems more birds should be coming down soon enough. Hopefully next weekend will be better at rabbit slough.
Hope everyone had a great opener and enjoyed the new table fare.
Lighter note..this was the first time my 21/2 year old twin girls have ever tasted waterfowl...they ate it all..could not get enough...got to love the idea of having a future waterfowler in the making..Me and the wife just laughed as they reached over on our plate to grab what was left......I did bring them some wingfeathers to play with and seems they carried them all day while playing around the house...they would come up and start saying duck..dada duck..quack...drove the wife crazy.....got to love it! (gave them duck calls Saturday and told them to get ready for next weekend.(like the wife will let me drag them on an hour boat ride, bugs, wet dogs, shotguns blaring...now is when the test begin.
