I feel your pain. We just finished up with a bath, and kitchen remodel. Still have to bust out the old tile, and get it ready for the new.

Already did the kitchen, kids bathroom and now finishing the guest bath. Next is the master. I hate taking off wallpaper, prepping bare sheetrock, texturing and painting all the while taping off the room and cleaning up the messes along the way. Oh did I mention my wife paints like a 2 year old, more paint where is shouldn't be then where is should.

Cool @ least someone is getting ducks.
We went after geese & due to the weather they stuck to the ground & would only get up if something started them. 1 / 9 / 11
So we made a last ditch effort at maybe someone getting one.
Well it turned out to be a good one but no one shot but me & they were on the outside range by then.70 yards +
I still can't figure out why the others didn't shot when they were fighting the wind head on and were only 30 yards high :eek: :eek: :eek: ??? ??? ::) !
The group of geese were around 100 give or take a few.
We seen about 600 that morning but this group stuck around on the other side of the fence all morning long.

I tried for a couple of geese that same day too. Had about 20 land on a different pond. So I walked the LONG way around to come up behind the dam and flush them, but something startled them off long before I got anywhere near them. I couldn't see the pond from where I was, so I know they didn't see me. But I heard them start honking, and then they went up. I could hear them, and hoped they would fly over, but couldn't see them. I don't know what it was, but it made me mad. That was a long, hard hike.

I guess Mr. Fills all his tags is having an off year. Welcome to our world LOL.

Hahaha!! Doesn't everyone deserve an off-year?

Of course my dad has always been a deer hunter almost exclusively, with the occasional squirrel and rabbit (never duck until I got him started a couple of years ago), but he's had a 13-year dry spell with deer. I hope I never experience something like that!!

okherb just move to CA and it will happen.
More people then deer about a 100:1 ratio. :eek: ::) ???

When I left CA a few years before that the number of tags sold just for one deer zone was like 50,000+ flipping crazy.

That 50k plus was for the A-zone and thay still have that tag amount. Anymore any zone aside from the A-zone is a lottery draw for a tag. I remember reading a DFG survey when I still lived there of buck and doe ratios in each zone (guess is more like it) D-7 the main zone I hunted was nearly 100 doe to a buck. I can almost believe it for that zone. We usually saw 30-40+ doe for every buck including non legal bucks. But they do have monster blacktail and mulies in CA. D-7 is no excepton. I saw a couple beast bucks but never got a shot.
