Day 2

Thanks for all of the kind posts. Had another great day on the geese (hunted a wheat field). Jeff and I both shot 2 triples each! The Kent Matrix is no less than devastating!

Heading into town today to get the fixings for a duck feast. Then heading back out to scout for tomorrows shoot. Got home from scouting last night and was so tired I went to bed and slept straight through to the alarm! :D

Today's Carnage count 24 geese:

22 Greater Canada's
1 lesser Canada
1 Speck

Day 4 and final day

We decided to hunt ducks on our final day. We went back to the day 1 pea field and set up off of the water about 100 yards. Out of the gate we had a flock of specs come in and then straight ducks thereafter.

We are heading back to Rob's place to relax and then on a flight home tomorrow. We weren't here for a long time - just a good time

Today's Carnage count 27 birds:

3 Specks
12 Pintail
12 Mallards.

An epic trip to sum it up!
