A Hunting We Will Go...

The last three weekends we have had company in to duck and goose hunt. It has been so much fun!

The second weekend in January, Stephen and "Big Lee" came to visit. I haven't gone hunting as much this year as last year. I think Marty's a little upset I haven't taken more pictures, but it just seems like there has been more going on the weekends.
That first morning it was 25 degrees and the wind was blowing so it was COLD. The boys had a great morning and bagged 27 birds including snows and everything. I'll have to get that picture from Stephen since I wasn't there.

The next morning we went to a new place and their were ducks and geese everywhere! But, it was a HUGE body of water so it was a little harder to hunt. I think they only recovered five birds, but they shot a few more that we simply couldn't find.

Here's a group of geese.

And a huge group of mallards.

Stephen shot his first speckled belly and he was so excited.

Did I mention he was excited?
