Eastern Washington Mallards

It's a long, slow process, but my video skills are slowing improving.  It also helps when the ducks cooperate.  I was able to put together some good clips from this past weekend and produce a nice little video.  Enjoy...

Green on the river

Bob and I had a pretty good river shoot over the weekend.  We stumbled across a few mallards and did our best to get Sadie her first retrieves of the season and got a few of them on film, giving me the opportunity to mess around with the video editing program.  The northern birds are finally showing up!

Life is good in the boat blind!

Shooting time in the swamp

Recently I hit the swamp, also know as the Winchester Wasteway, with Bob, Steve, Kurt, and the Duck Guru.  Deke did the retrieving while Bob supervised, RR did the calling, and the rest of us enjoyed a nice early season shoot of Mallards and Pintails.  The weather is changing and new birds are trickling in.  Should be some good hunting to be had in the near future.  Here are a few pics from the swamp...

The opener

The opener was later than usual this year, Oct 17, but the weather was still plenty warm.  The high for the day rang in at 75.  Not your typical "foul-weather" associated with duck hunting, but we made the most of it bagging 3 mallards and 3 large geese for Deke to retrieve.  I also added another goose later in the day jump shooting with Sadie.  It will be slim pickin's around these parts until we get a good push of cold air from up North.  Until next time...

Summer Run Salmon

The summer run salmon season on the Upper Columbia has been great this year, at least in terms of catching fish.  Unfortunately, photo ops have been relatively few as the majority of fish caught have been wild and must be released without ever leaving the water.  The current streak of wild Kings caught without catching a hatchery fish sits at 25... which is great news for future salmon runs!

Slammin' Salmon

Saturday marked the opening of the Spring Chinook season on the Wenatchee River.  The Icicle River opened it's Spring Chinook season the previous Wednesday.   By 9:15 Saturday morning, John and I each had our 2ea limit of hatchery Springers, plus our guide also had his limit as well.  Great morning fishing the Wenatchee.  Fishing fever has set in, I can't wait for the general salmon season on the main stem of the Columbia!
