Tune-Up on Early Season Ducks

Hunting early season waterfowl is tough. Local birds are quick to detect changes on their home turf making good blinds an immediate priority.

Duck Opener: Lake St. Clair

My duck season is officially off to a rough start.  After a lousy opening morning in the middle zone, I was pumped to get a second chance in Lake St. Clair.

Delta Waterfowl Pic Contest

Although I’m enjoying a spring of great fishing I’m excited that summer is just around the corner. But I hate hot weather. And I’m not a “beach dude”. The only reason I love summer is because when it’s over…duck season begins.   My photos from last season motivate me through the summer to train the dog and get … Continue reading
