  1. Saw two hens with what looked like at least 10 little ones a week and a half ago in our yard. Same size so they were hard to see in the grass. Haven’t seen them since, but had some work done around the house. Hopefully they have made it through some of the torrential rains we have had.
  2. Have had the worst waterfowl season that I can remember! Early teal season was terrible, which is when we usually have our best luck! Regular season has produced 1 drake... I hope everyone else is having a better time than we have! Ok, rant over! I want to wish everyone here and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
  3. Also, heard today that from Alley to Eminence is unfloatable due to the flood. Haven't been down to see it but it was a pretty reliable source.
  4. Honestly I would start at 17 Bridge if you are only going 2 1/2 days. It will still be a push to get all the way to Eminence in my opinion. As a kid we would go 17 to Alley in 2 1/2 days. Especially if u want to fish much.

    Current River has been shut down from Tan Vat to Gooseneck until further notice. All campgrounds are also closed throughout this stretch.
  6. As I have stated in the past, living in south-central Missouri is not the most ideal place to live when you love to duck hunt! Your only chance at limiting on Mallards requires yourself to travel to other parts of the state or go to Arkansas. But, we still set our blind and do all the work to eek out a few birds every year. Every once in a great while you get a morning like today! Lucy enough to share the blind with my father and my 9 year old son we shot two limits of Mallards and 1 Widgeon! My son just being there to spot the ducks and blow on his call a bit, while dad and I do the shooting. First duck in was the Widgeon and he was finished off in one shot. Next came the Mallards. Didn't even see them till they lit right in the decoys. We stood up and I knocked down 2 in two shots, won't say what happened in my dad's end?! Had 6 Mallards, all drakes; circle and land 60 yards up the lake. Less than 5 mins they swam right into range. We stood up and the shooting was better as we dropped 4 drakes. A bit later 2 made one circle, cupped their wings and dropped right in with my dad knocking one down and I knocked the other one down. All ducks retrieved by my lab, man what a beautiful morning! Now time to get my son his deer!
  7. Saturday turned out to be a lot better than expected. Had 4 green-wing teal come in at shooting time, poor shooting only netted 1. Had a high group of gadwalls circle a couple times a few mins later, but they didn't want to commit. Had a group of 6 green-wings come in while we were watching the gadwall. Better shooting netted us 4. Sat back and relaxed for an it when all of a sudden 15 green-wings buzzed through, banked left and in they came. 5 didn't make it out and our day ended about and hour later with no action. While we were finishing up cleaning watched two big groups of gadwalls circle around and lad in the middle of the lake! Sunday we headed out with high expectations since we saw quite a bit on Saturday. No such luck. One gadwall in at 6:35 that we shot and never saw another duck!

    Youth Season

    Overall a rough weekend for my 9 year old and myself. Did not see a deer either morning, but the afternoons were a touch better. Saw 2 does and 2 fawns Saturday evening, but they stayed just out of comfortable shooting range for my son. Sunday evening did not see a deer till 5 mins before legal shooting ended. Watch him come across the field from a long way, but could never get him to stop longer than 3 seconds max. He was a good buck, just wish he would have stoppped longer than he did. Had another deer come through right after him, but yet again had a hard time getting it to stand still for my son to get a good shot. My son enjoyed going, just wish he could have gotten a shot off! Now we will wait for regular gun season!

    Youth Season

    Good luck to all those young enough to hunt this weekend. Let us know how the young ones did. Not ideal conditions for deer but comfortable for the kiddos!
  11. Current had a pretty good rise on it. It will retreat quicker than others, but it rose 5 feet in two hours around Owls Bend. Had some friends lose their campers.
  12. I caught a small mouth one year down by the dam and my jig head came untied as I lifted him into the boat. We went down the bank and came back and I caught him again with the jig head still in his mouth. Literally less than 30 mins apart. Nice to get my jig head back. Lol
  13. Glad everyone had a great morning. For the first time in over 30 years I will not be spring turkey hunting. Between work and kid's activities on each weekend I just won't have any time to dedicate to it this year. I look forward to seeing all the reports and especially the pics!
