The Season draws to a close…

Another season is behind us… bitter sweet as always.  We are so fortunate to have so many guys that are not simply our hunters but are true and special friends.  We get so use to seeing you during the season and we truly miss your company once the season is done.  Thank you so much to everyone!  This year proved to be an exciting and challenging one… 70 degree weather and crazy winds… all to wrap up with welcomed shifts in temperature and wind direction.  Despite mother nature the hunting was great and the time spent even better!  We are already planning and looking forward to 2013-2014… Can’t wait to see everyone again!!

Duck Season 2012-2013

It’s almost here!  The season finally opens Saturday with much anticipation for great hunts and awesome time with all our hunters!  The ducks are here despite the unseasonable warm weather and we are thankful to be ringing in another season with the addition of some fantastic locations and lots of excitment.  A quick pre-season trip to the central flyway wrapped up just in time to finish prepping and get ready for 6 weeks of hard work and tons of fun 🙂

The November season is in full swing!!  A huge thank you to Jim and Jimmy… always a blast to have you guys!!! We’ll post the majority of the pictures at the end of the season 🙂

First Deer for Blain :)

With duck season rapidly approaching, Karl took a breather from preparations and spent a little time in the woods with 3 fine young men.  Congratulations to Blain for getting this beautiful buck as his first deer!!!  What a fantastic shot!  We have high hopes that this initial outing will set the stage for many more to come for him.  Cannon and Jarrod… you guys are next!
