  5. Hit the public swamp solo again. This morning was a lot more of a duck day , high winds, overcast with some grit mixed in. More ducks flying today than yesterday. Unfortunately most of them were mergs , a couple nice size flocks of mallards going out to feed but some stopped by to visit. I gave a 3 pack of geese a couple honks to keep them inline looking and down my 1 [emoji23]. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. My buddy and I hunted a corn field this morning . Waited for the rain to stop then set up. Had 1 flock come in and we left. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I did some scouting the past couple days in the swamp. I saw about 20 shovelers feeding a couple days in a row and with most of the backwaters frozen today was the day to try before things open up again and they feed elsewhere . The Mallard's wanted another spot than us but my buddy and I had them shovelers fly over and we dumped 2 . I lost sight of them 2 nice drakes in the flock as they were coming in [emoji107].

  19. Last day buck , opening day bucks. Last day of Bow I got into the stand early. Around 7 I heard a doe blee .... But nothing that way. 30 min later I hear a stick break over that way and look. I see a doe with a nice buck behind her at 45 yards. He stood there for a hour and 45 minutes. Just standing there staring at me the whole time and he is upwind. I think he has me skylined . Not sure where the doe ever ended up going, but he walked five yards closer but then angled going away. But stopped quartered away Looking back hard at me. Now or never... I shoot and hit him perfect in front of the guts and to the opposite shoulder. He ran 80 yards and fell over . Opening day I go to the same tree stand hoping that doe is still in that thicket. Well 650 in the morning I had a doe bust me and stand there only 1 thing to do now. Bang! A good hour and a half goes by . I hear something behind me and all I see is tines in the golden rod . He's following a doe no time to think I pull up and shoot. He does a loop and his antlers catch the ground and he flips dead on my pathway..... Unbelievable 2 years in a row last day of Bow opening day of gun same tree same spot. Opening day afternoon hunt with the wife at my lease. We got to the blind and all set up , heater on , gun in the bipod took my hands off the bipod looked out the window and said there's your buck out there now LMFAO. She has an antler restriction bigger than a 4. Well he's bigger than 4. He's out at 132 yards . I said whenever your ready. Bang ! The deer runs 20 and falls over in the field !!!! Perfect heart shot ! Sent from my Pixel 6 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. I was going to bow hunt this morning but with the cornfield flooded..... That wasn't a hard choice. Hunted till we got our Mallard's then we left. The dog got some birthday work today!! Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Hunted the lease this my with my buddy, not many ducks but lots of geese. Water was up so high it was almost level with the floor of the blind. Easy for the dog to swim right in. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. With all this rain I got the day off of work and so did my buddy. We knew the creek was going to be flooded in the cornfield so that's where we ended up. Not many birds have been down there at all this year but knew they were going to show up with all this water. Had lots of wood ducks come in first thing and then we picked away at Mallard's and a black. Even had a flock of darts show up. Awesome morning !!

  23. Today was 1 of them days nothing was going right . Couldn't make it back to the spot cuz the water was to high so plan B and that had no birds only got 1 wood duck. That's what happens when u don't scout lol. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Hunted the creek yesterday with a couple buddy's , wood ducks are not around like last year that's for sure. We only saw about 50 ducks all morning. Hopefully today is better Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. Took my buddy's kid out this afternoon for the youth hunt at my lease . I took him out shooting a couple weeks ago so he wasn't scared of the gun (.243) when time comes. So I picked him up at 230 then stopped at DD for our iced coffees. Got to the lease and in the blind all set up around 4. We are looking over a huge Clover field and the wait begins. Every couple minutes I would look out the window to look for deer because the two of them are buried in their phones.... It was around 5:15 I looked out the window and there is a nice 8 point standing 140 yards away feeding looking right us. I already had the gun and bipod set up for a nice easy shot. He was getting ready to shoot but shaking like a leaf I had to calm him down. "It's just a deer " he's not going anywhere lol. A couple minutes goes by and the deer turns broadside. He says I'm ready. I told him whenever you have the crosshairs on him and your ready shoot. Let me tell u when that gun went off and the deer dropped the blind was going crazy !!!! Hands down the best hunt I ever been on and will never forget. He was the happiest kid ever!!! Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
