    Tuesday anything I saw flying went directly east. Think I only heard 2 shots all morning. We picked up our blinds around 1045 and walked to rig road. Only to turn around and see a small flock cupped on our spread.

    Two scouting trips by the crew lead to us hunting elsewhere, and those trips weren't any better.

    Anyone need a vet or 2 for Veterans Preference Drawing on Saturday? Or is everyone heading to Todd farms for opener?

    Seriously? That's nuts!

    I would expect they would be on the afternoon feed by now. It just might be an off year, what with water everywhere, not much corn on the unit, and a sluggish migration. Hopefully the NW blow late this week freshens things up a bit.

    Been a little show around there, last tues nothing killed. Need some fresh birds. Everything seems to be heading to local farms instead.

    All vets in the PM draw or coming in from the AM draw from 11 to about 11:30, my crew is coming from across the state for the PM hunt and we're doing dinner on the deck after we draw. Nothing fancy, but you're welcome to join us for a free lunch. Just drop a note here so I know how much food to pack.

    Figure since we're probably not going to kill anything based on the reports, at least we'll slam out a spread and then nap after pigging out.

    Ahh yes...I have taken part in the lunch on the deck with FBD and Waterfowler 83...and Grundy!

    Enjoy boys...and hopefully the birds will cooperate later that day.

    Anyone got some snowy owl decoys I can borrow? Or how crappy is the weather north of us?
