First time this season on the ducks

Recommended Posts

We’ve finally got out on our splash today and it didn’t disappoint.

10 duck and 3 Canada geese between 3 of us. I managed 2 left and rights some how and besides a goose and a duck that came in like a rocket . I’m chuffed to bits for 90 minutes shooting 

 

my mates 12 year old lab retrieved everything amazingly.

Excellent flight today 😊 and not a duck left the pond either. All flying / none landed

It looked a bit wet down where I think you where TT.  Not quite over the banks but close.  A nice evenings sport and give that dog a hug from me, deserves an extra one.

My mates dog did amazing nev. I guess the banks will burst a bit more just yet with more rain due. You can see us from the road coming from yours but it’s a little bit deeper than we wanted as we stood in the water.

Seriously heavy rain up here on 'the Hill' so I would keep your eyes open for a bearded old guy in a boat with a load of animals :yes:

Nice flight m8. I'm out tonight hopefully a decent flight as last week we pushed off 150 only for them not to return only shooting 3 wigeon and 1 mallard.  Been clearing a lot of feed so hopefully better tonight 😁

I used to feed and shoot the spot team Tractor has had such luck on, back in the late 1950's and that valley has always produced good flights of wildfowl. A river runs through a series of flashes and larger 'lakes' due to mining subsidence.  If you can't get a good flight along that valley then the world is ending.   Enjoy it TT because I think there will be 120mph trains rushing through there in the next few years.

I know 😞 that is a worry . It’s straight through the middle . Heard it might be scrapped

Last week we pushed off 150 but they didn't come back. Lots of feed gone with guns watching them flight in during the week, just a strange night. They will be back and I will report back.

I can understand why she’d want you out the house at least once a week! 😂
