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!
