2018 East Zone Season Opener

Reply
 
East zone opener was a brutal one for the public land we hunt! World War 3 lasted for almost the first 2 hours with hunters shooting the unlimited number of coots. Managed to scratch out a few before calling it a day. Conditions were rough with no wind and sunny skies. Hopefully we can get a push of birds or better conditions next time.

Our East Zone Opener and Second day went about like yours did.Heard a ton of shooting but saw very few ducks,suspect most folks were targeting coots,though I did spot a few nice bands of teal,few mottled ducks and mallards and some greys!!Goofed big-time Sat as I heard a snow goose calling,heard my hunting buddy mouth-calling,then the calling stopped,dummy me started texting another hunter and lo and behold,solo snow goose about took my head off and I had no chance as my trusty customized Beretta Extrema was not in my hands!!!Saw a few more birds Sunday and one of my hunting buddies got fine greenhead(I called it before he even fired as that drake was coming my way,saw his deke spread and circled and I knew where he was,quite calling,texted him and blew his mind that I knew what he shot before it fell!!).Good luck and got e-mail wanting to include info from our hunts for DU migration reports!!

Yeah, I had some boat issues so wasn't able to make a hunt on the second day. Hopefully can hunt this weekend coming up and without as much pressure and coot shooting.

Turns out my boat issues nothing more than burned-out plugs,guess de ole boat getting more use than I suspected and my trusty mechanic took care of dat issue pronto and got ole Southfork back home,loaded her up with de Chapmans and fine lil yak one of my Medicare clients uses to get to blind with!!Getting excited bout possible additions to local marshes and hopeful dat future hunts might bring results like me and Bayoubob had when we both were beard-less and I,for one,much thinner,guess all dem long paddles I used to do!
