"Who me? I wasn't doing nuthin, just niffin."
"Well you just quit YOUR "niffin" and pay attention out front for some more ducks."
Unfortunately, that was it for Remi and me, 1 Gadwall. We had four mallards and a pair of Teal give us a couple interested looks but never came closer than 75 yards. The lone Gadwall turned twice before I coaxed it into cupping and trying to land about 25 yards out into the dekes.
If a lot of new birds came down ahead of yesterday's front, they sure aren't around our immediate area. Never saw any high flights at all and no Honkers for the past couple trips.
Saw a sight I've never seen before on the way into the blind this morning. At first I thought there was a white plastic bag blowing ahead of us (20 mph NW wind) on the berm that we drive on with the Jeep in 4WD low due to yesterday's heavy afternoon rain. Watched the object through the headlights I then thought no, it might be an injured snow goose, the way it wobbled as it moved.
As I got closer ... nope ... SKUNK.
Never saw one with a white undersided tail but solid golden yellow on its full back. I sure didn't want a closer look so we stopped and let it waddle it's way ahead of us another 25 yards or so before it turned off the berm and down towards the water. Would have shot it but didn't want to spook birds in the area about 15 mins before Legal Shooting Time.
Cute pic, that first one. Caught in a very puppylike act.

That second one is a "Who, me?" classic!

Those pictures are great, such an expressive face!
Great pics Jim. Remie made me smile.
Aww sweet Remi
"Just thinking about tenderizing the duck for ya, Dad." "What da ya mean it doesn't need tenderizing?"
Well if you'd start shootin' Dad, I wouldn't have to pass the time sniffun.
