Post pics and start telling us some stories. Me, I have only been dove hunting. Way too hot for the resident season and I just don't feel like slaughtering them. Went dove hunting on Tuesday and killed 4 with 5 shells. Wounded another that flew off 100+ yards into the high corn and neither me nor the dog could find it. Would have been nice to go 5 for 5, but such is life. Better 4 than nothing.

I am hoping that I get into some good waterfowling this year to make up for the entire lack of hunting last year. Time will tell.

How would you like to see this in your sites? All 3 wigeon: the American, European/Eurasion & the rare Storm Wigeon. Bill Schmoker took this photo a few years ago in Colorado. I can only dream.....

The colors in that photo are just awsome. The clarity of the center duck is awesome too.

Getting all 3 species with one shot would be a feat of a lifetime.
