bitter sweet end of the season

With my final trip scheduled for yesterday my party cancelled because of the forcasted weather.  I wasnt gonna let a forecasted NE snowstorm get by without me getting in some gunning. After some poor shooting on my part, the birds handled nicely the dog was on her game, I got to reflect on this past season, and though it wasn’t the season I am gonna be telling my grandchildren about, it was better than not having a season at all. We had some great folks share some NJ gunning with us from across this great country, we all had fun. Though my hands ache, my skin cracks and my joints hurt it’s bitter sweet to see the season end. In a week or two my batteries will be recharged, carving projects will begin, dog training will start, I guess I must have Diver blood running thru my veins.

Final Stretch 2011-2012 Waterfowl Season

Happy New Year to all, 2011-2012 season has been one of mild weather and tough hunting conditions.  Even though conditions have been tough due to the late migration and weather we have had alot of fun and have had some great hunters that have travelled from as far as Alaska.  With the final 3 weeks approaching we have very few dates still available, if you are interested in a diver hunt do not delay.  Colder temperatures are in the forecast for us and and to the north which should make for some excellent gunning the last few weeks of the season.  We have been fortunate to hunt with some new clients as well as our regulars.  Just wanted to share some photos of some our most recent hunts and look forward to seeing some of you in the next few weeks.  We are currently booking for the 2012-2013 Waterfowl season be sure to book early for those prime dates.  As always we will be incorporating new gear into the rig as in years past.
