Season highlight video

A best of from the 2014-15 waterfowl season--video and pics.  Special thanks to Bob, Rob, Ric, Steve, John, Ed, Roger, and of course, our trusty retrievers Sadie and Deke.  Ducks are tough to see in the first 30 seconds unless you're watching on a bigscreen.

Hunting with a legend

Recently, we had the good fortune to hunt with a Northwest duck hunting and calling legend:  Roger Reynolds.  You can read about Roger here in an archived article from the Ellensburg Daily Record.  Bob and Roger go way back, hunting partners and buddies for nearly half a century.  After watching 1000's of ducks pile into open water just next to our spread we moved from our first spot, and proceeded to shoot our limits of mallards and pintails in just under an hour.  And this time, I was able to get some video before the hunt was over, it's nothing special, but better than what I've produced in the past.

Duck club weekend

Had a good weekend of hunting with my buddy at his duck club.  Good food, great wine, and of course, plenty of Mallards, with a Pintail pair and a Gadwall pair thrown in for good measure.  My attempt to get some quality video failed miserably, so I only have few photos to share.  Mallard Mulligan stew is on the menu later this week!

No room for error

It was a great shoot Sunday morning, with Bob going a perfect 7 for 7 on ducks-7 shots fired, 7 birds in the boat.  All said, I think we saw 16 ducks for the day-13 are now in the freezer, plus a giant Canadian goose that got a little closer to the boat than all his other (much smarter) buddies.
