Well I'm finally gone some place that has ducks I hope.

Well I've been out twice this year duck hunting and I've shot a Mallard hen and a coot. They are also the only two birds I've seen. We are sick and tired of wearing are waders in 80 and 85 degree temperatures so after Thanksgiving me and the young guy I go hunting with are going up into the mountains almost 5 hours away. We called Game and Fish and they have seen ducks and geese up on the Lakes we're going to. I've never shot Ducks above 8000 feet before should be interesting. We are keeping our expectations low. He wants to shoot his first greenhead and I would like to just fire shots at a couple geese. It is going to be so nice not to have to pour sweat out of our waders when we get back to the truck. I even had to buy a parka for Otto. He has never been below freezing before.

We look forward to seeing some pictures, whether or dead fowl or otherwise. Good luck.
