    Default I got my first limit today

    of pintail, which in WA is 1! But it was my first shot EVER and I hit it. So, we'd been hunting for all of 5 minutes and I limited out. We were fighting sideways rain and 50 mph winds, and somehow I managed to actually hit it. Miracles do happen.



    Going somewhere else tomorrow to try and get some Mallards since the only thing flying where we were is Pintail.

    Now the pressure to keep your shooting % is pretty high.

    Good luck tomorrow, and have fun.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Pat, the fields on Cook Rd. were insane! Thousands of Mallards right along the road. We're off to S. Skagit today. Brad has permission to hunt at the back of the public land on Francis Rd, thanks to his friend's dad. I guess Francis Rd Public Hunting was crazy yesterday.

    Howard, my shooting percentage is about to take a major nose dive.

    Congrats on the pintail. A pintail is certainly nothing to sneeze at. We don't get near the numbers of them here in Ohio that you do out there. Some friends of mine have been getting into them lately, taking nice mountable drakes, but nothing is hitting my fields. Still a couple of weeks to hope, though.

    Don, there were thousands of pintails out there yesterday and you could only shoot one per person. I think all day we saw 3 Mallards.

    I baked my grandma's apple pie for the guy who is letting us hunt on his property. He won't take money, but my husband figured that a good warm pie (like in the oven right now, still warm when we get there tonight) should smooze enough to give us rights to hunt there!

    Pat, did my grandma ever make you guys one of her pies?

    Nice going. Shoot that bull Sprig next time. But you've got to be careful with only one pintail allowed. Nice picture also. HPW

    Here, mallards and black ducks are our stock in trade. Oh, and tons of giant Canada geese.

    If you bake me an apple pie, you can hunt my land. I know it's a bit of a drive, though. LOL
