    I'm glad someone has had some luck! Hardest ducks I ever tried to work this year! I was decent on crows. Shot 2-3+ on most hunts. Ducks, not so much. Friends are averaging 35 per day with kern, pumps, ice eaters etc

    9mm for Concealed carry

    I don't carry at the moment... A friend had a 43... Too small for my hand. I finally got my hands on a 43X and have been very pleased. Fits my hand but still compact for if I do need to carry.

    Grackles are awful

    They usually show up with snow to raid the bird feeders.. Never happened yet this year? I open the bathroom window and pull the shades and shoot them with the pellet gun.

    2021-22 Quota Hunts

    I have not hunted the refuge since 2006.. But I have broke 3+ inches of ice on Flat Lake with a boat. We could not even get to the spot we picked(They did not mention that) Whirled around trying to toss the ice out of the hole with poor results. Killed one duck. Birds should still be there...

    Good old days

    I'm originally from Maumee Ohio(Famous for the spring walleye run) 65 model. We lived within sight of the river when the leaves were off the trees. I could walk down to a dam on a creek and scratch the leaves to find a stray hook, some line and a few worms and catch hundreds of small bluegill...

    How many read outdoor/hunting magazines??

    Still a quality Magazine! I despise the decline of journalism into advertisement of the latest gadget. I would much rather read a 40 year old magazine that had articles with interesting stories! I do watch lots of Youtube non commercial stuff.

    Where is all the geese

    Last February when it got real cold. The big lake bays were freezing up... We hunted three days but the geese did not fly? We picked up and had about 50 sitting on the ice a couple hundred yards away, I used to think all the geese on ponds went to the lake when the ponds froze up but last...
