    Results, RK??? Inquring minds want to know!

    I'm getting kinda fired up for this weekend. We have had a blast of cooler air. It looks like I might not have to sweat and swat mosquitos on Saturday! Bring on the wood ducks, baby!

    OK......

    #1----I used "Black Cloud" loads.
    First shot jams ejecting.
    I am digging shell out with leatherman tool, 3 woodies land in the decoys!!!!
    I get the shell out, lock and load and as they flew away the little bastards are laughing, not quacking (I know they don't quack I am using literary license).

    LAUGHING I tell ya!!!

    #2--No more whining about tough blinds in hunt tests!!!!

    I knocked down a Woodie, it glides about 200+ yards and hits the cattails/swamp.
    We are standing in mud and water to my knees, with weeds to my waist.
    Neither of us know exactlty where the bird is, a double blind so to speak.
    I sends Elvis and he tears ass out, gets a ways out and pops, looks at me like WTF??
    I am handling him to the downwind side of where I think the bird is.
    I keep pushing him back in this crap while I have climbed up on a muskrat platform so he can see me.

    At about 225+ he gets a nose full.
    I see his tail going, I let him finish.
    I hear all kinds of splashing and thrashing, I can't see Elvis, then here he comes, bird in mouth, chest pumped out!!

    So, we probaly get a 0 in a hunt test, but 1 we got 1 Woodie in the bag.
    And I am proud of his work.

    Awesome Stan! You gotta love the real stuff instead of the games! Sounds like Elvis made a real tough retrieve for you. You should be one proud dude! I don't think my dog will have to ever worry about making a 200 yd retrieve on a woodie. None of my wood duck holes are that big! Good luck whenever you get back out.

    I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL SATURDAY!!!
