My conflicts and my blind partner’s work prevented either of us from hunting the last Saturday, so we postponed the hunt ’til Sunday.
Started off pretty good when a few teal buzzed us early at blind C. We had three birds in the first hour and were thinking that things might turn out OK.
Unfortunately many hunters were eager to finish picking up decoys, so after 8 AM, the hunting completely turned off with ATVs on every levee.
We still had three birds and hadn’t fired a shot for some time when the last of the other hunters pulled out. About that time a gaggle of snow geese broke up and headed our way. We put in some #2 shot and each of us dropped a snow goose.
Tom had quite long chase while Lola retrieved my goose.
We sat it out for another hour and a half and Tom dropped a teal before giving in and picking up the decoys at blind 4.
Every season is unique as was this one. Had more limits than goose eggs, but a fair number of each.
Lola was rejuvenated this season and I’m hopeful that she’s got a couple more years of hunting left. Could say the same for me.
