First things first,special shout-out goes to GB3(Big)and his right-hand man(Al)for accommodating de Nuck and Futz Duo on their 2-day Lake Village,Arkansas duck trip.Gotta hand it to ya GB3,got fine Quack Shack,up there in Lake Village,Arkansas and we had an incredible time,too bad de doggone ducks did NOT totally cooperate neither did Mother Nature!!!We started off hunting fine pit blind and thanks to some great shooting by GB3,nice drake green wing teal and drake pintail hit de water and we all pounded nice greenie and it was comical watching feathers falling from de sky,seeming to take forever to finally light on water!!!He also nabbed two speckled-bellied geese to add to de strap and Mother Nature tossed us wicked curve in form of ground-hugging fog dat made for extremely difficult shots and ducks and geese were ridiculously wary.Day 2 we used fine amphibious vehicle outfitted with fine blind and thus device allows extreme mobility and Al motored this portable blind to exactly where he saw plenty of ducks after yesterday's hunt.We had to dodge plenty of rain and could not seem to get anything to come close enough for decent shooting,even though we did give it a real good effort and once we called it quits,Al motored amphibious blind to yet another extremely promising spot,spotted hundreds of ducks and geese blazing around their chosen spot for tomorrow.Good luck Big and Al,bust em up and shoot me pics!!!Can't believe the volume of waterfowl in your fine place up there,definitely the grass is much greener(pun intended)in Arkansas,though we do not have the ducks and geese to prove it.Perhaps the biggest issue we faced is shear lack of hunting pressure as by season's end,lotta duck hunters toss in de towel and at dinner Monday evening,we overheard plenty of folks talking bout how the hunters pretty much vacated that area,BIG MISTAKE!!!De Nuck and Futz Duo is most assuredly ready to come back up and we want to thank you and Al,had a great time,now let's tackle some Trestles Trout!!!Bet Al got a kick outta de wild turkey video showing two Pearl River longboards fighting in tall tree!!!Thanks,thanks,more thanks!!!
