Changing Gears once again :)

It’s that time of year again when we go through withdrawals and tell everyone “Goodbye” for now at the close of another duck season… Our season starts Mid-September and by the end of January it takes a little getting use to when the early mornings, non-stop scouting and phone calls, and continuous prep for the next day’s hunts/departures/arrivals comes to an abrupt end.  We can never say “Thank you” enough to everyone… especially during a tough season like this year!  We were due for a crazy warm winter and we sure got it!  Nothing can stop the fun though and when you have a group of guys (and girls!) like we have – it is always a blast!!  We are so thankful for everyone and for the opportunity to spend time with such incredible friends.  We are already looking forward to next year… Spring Turkey is next then it’s time to fish!!  Thanks again everyone 🙂

Ducks!

The word of the day is DUCKS!!  Things have been busy busy the last 2 months… never-ending prep work and upkeep to get ready for the big season bearing down on us Saturday (it’s almost here!), the short season (a HUGE thank you to our early crowd… always a blast!), and trips out to the central flyway.  One of the highlights of our year is to start the season by heading out west to see lots of great old friends and make fantastic new ones… A part of the country where the scenery is breath taking, the duck activity unbelievable, and the people incredible.  A piece of true America…Faith, Family, and Community are forefront and the friends are priceless.  We are always so thankful to get back there and spend some time.   And now back to business….We’re geared up and ready to get to it this season!  The weather is ducky and the birds are flying… can’t wait to see everyone!

End of another season…

Well after two years Martin Mcnally returns back down east to hunt with us… He picked up right were he left off scoring first thing this morning with a great strutter..What a great hunt.  This one was going to be ten yards from us when he got the smack down.  What a great season.  Always sad to see turkey season go away.  It’s what spring is all about..We ended on a high note for sure.  We are happy to say we had a one hundred percent success rate for all of our hunters this year.. This is Martin closing out our year.. LETS GO FISHING! !!
