I have purchased the low density cork kits and recieved a great deal of guidance and coaching, such that I am carving my own deeks, and they are being purchased at charity auctions. Thanks Dave !
Layout boat kind of morning, thanks Willie!

Another season in the books! Hope everyone had an enjoyable time in the marsh and fields!

Great opening day for geese.

Season Tip #19 - After a hunt, most everything that went with you will probably be wet. Shotgun shells that are left wet will eventually rust. Dry all of your shells off, leave shell boxes open and make sure to not leave shells in damp neoprene shell holders. Squirt some light duty oil in a zip lock and roll the shells around and then wipe dry.

Season Tip #18 - For safety's sake, make sure you and your hunting partners have discussed "zones of fire" before the shooting begins. Knowing what areas each hunter is allowed to shoot will be safer and ensure that each hunter knows which birds he or she is allowed to shoot at.

Opening day yesterday found my son Brian I sitting in the dark waiting for legal shooting time. We called off the hunt when I couldn't find our hunting licenses. Turns out they were in the inside pocket of my parka the whole time. Never realized it until we got home. Better safe than sorry.

Wood and cork decoys........just like the old days!

Season Tip #17 - When dealing with law enforcement respectful and polite. If you are in the wrong.....own it. They deal with a lot of crap everyday......don't be additional crap!

Season Tip #16 - NEVER say anything negative about your hunting partner's gun, dog, boat, decoys, calling.........if you can't say anything nice...........

Season Tip #15 - When you find someone hunting in your spot (I'm talking about a state reserved area) kindly let them know that you have this area reserved. Being rude will not help the situation since, sometimes, it is an honest mistake. If the argument escalates, leave the area and contact the DNR police to report it. Standing in the dark with a flashlight in your eyes is not the time to wonder if someone is mad enough to shoot you. Be safe, might even offer for them to join you.
