Waterfowl Hunting Memories

Well here I am, back in another airplane for a cross country trip home from work. As I write this I’m on the first lag of my trip back to North Dakota from Blacksburg, Virginia. After a long exhausting week, it feels good to know I’m going home. And this isn’t just any ordinary trip home, four hours after I arrive home I’ll be packed and heading up to Saskatchewan for a week of much needed goose hunting. With the anticipation steadily increasing I looked to my photo album to look back at some memorable waterfowl hunting memories.

At the end of September of this year, I was able to take my neighbors son out for his first duck. It sure puts things in perspective when you can relive what it was like for this first time.

This was one of the strangest fogs I ever hunted in a couple years back. It was so thick and low you could almost pull at it like cotton candy.

I love the late season, and this day was no exception.

You never know what you’ll run across while scouting.

I gotta say this was the first time I’d ever had geese come in through the smog.

Opening morning in 2005, we were absolutely swarmed with ducks. After a quick 5-man limit I sat back and took pictures.

Some of my favorite hunting partners are the father/son team of Greg (Old Hunter) and Taylor (Maverick) Ells. We were able to get together this past spring for a couple of memorable snow goose hunts.

Here I am taking another day off from shooting to capture the memories. There is nothing like the feeling of archiving your hunting for future generations.

Take some time to document your waterfowl hunting memories……they will last a lifetime.
