  1. Just a couple short hunts, Yesterday I went solo. Running late by the time I picked a spot it was shooting time. Threw out the decoys and sat for a couple hours and was gifted a wood duck. This is by far the nicest one I have ever shot. The blues were vivid and bright, This morning the Mrs. was off work. I asked do you want to go and there was a quick yes. Went back to same area this time we were running time wise perfect. Sky was beginning to brighten up behind Pat as she was waiting, This morning we scored on three ducks. Two blue wings and another wood duck. Big ducks were working some and there were some near misses. One of those deals when you hunt public ground. Get birds working and there was a party set up pretty close, close enough we could hear them hollering at the dog. They would shoot and our working birds would flare. Not complaining it is what it is. Left out around nineish and headed to the house. Grilled the woodies and had salad from the fall garden. Big weather change coming. We will see what it brings. To me the split sucks but again I cannot complain. Did not voice my opinion. With three archery deer between the Mrs. and I would not be deer hunting anyway. Much rather be duck hunting next week, The BilletHeads

    Opening weekend come and gone. How'd you do?

    Neat reports guys and well done to the new hunter. You never forget your first. Bummer DJ for the gun issue . Yep it happens. The BilletHead's pretty much just watched deer out the window both evenings. Our little food plot out back and cut soybeans to the south. The does come out and Saturday three little bucks. Soon a nice one gets into the mix and round and round they all go. Last Evening just the big one showed up checking out the mixed seven slick heads in the field. The bigger buck is a solid wide thick six point for sure but cannot see any eye guards/brow tines at that distance out the window. I have three nice sixes on trail cam that are missing the needed points. Genetics I suppose. It is a shame to have five year old deer that this is all they are going to do and they need taken out but we are still in the 4 pt. or better part of the state. With three archery deer in the freezer do not need to shoot another. BilletHead Jr. has plans on being here to hunt Saturday. I am hoping he has one of the big ones go by his favorite stand. If he wants just shoot an eater that will work too, BilletHead

    Jig fest boat thread

    Nope, Bushing on the motor mount where the motor pivots. It was put on upside down. The mechanic said it was that way from the factory in China. Unbeknownst to me I did not notice it until my warranty was expired. Even sent the picture to Wrench. Thought it was a good enough picture he would pick up the problem. I have place I get it serviced South of me. Much closer than Glenn . I told the guy something just did not look right. He laughed and said it had been installed upside down. He even called mercury. They said out of warranty , BilletHead

    Not really if you use sparingly. We dehydrated some. Break them open and shake out the seeds. Then break up the pepper. Same little red peppers they put on General Tso's when you order it on the spicy side. Contrarily to popular belief we are not pepper heads. We like to taste what we are eating. like enough spice heat just to let us know it is in there. BilletHead

    Looks good there RPS, We did Crispy Sesame chicken with a Sticky Asian Sauce. First time for this dish. Very good but I think next time will add some Thai peppers, BilletHead

    Finally got on the cinnamon roll bandwagon, Used the recipe @Flysmallie shared with us. Did not have what I would call a good first or second rise but the baking process brought the dough to life, We did add a few raisns and a handful of chopped native pecans. Spread the frosting and it made a good breakfast at 5:45 this morning with a hot cup of coffee, Thanks Ronnie, BilletHead

    What's Cooking?

    Duck egg rolls, Been quite awhile since we made egg rolls. Did some searching and found a recipe. All I can say is that they rock. Five of them just went into my pie hole. Made a meal of them, BilletHead

    Silhouette shooting, Well Wrench got a bunch of silhouette targets. I did not get any ordered but a package showed up in the mail from our fishinwrench here on OAF. Thanks @fishinwrench . I read the instructions and it said to tie some twine to the targets so you don't loose them after being hit. I am always thinking and came up with something, Some little chain, small clips and screw chain to 5/4 foot long sections of decking boards. I thought this is going to work and sent picture via text to wrench. Good idea he said and he had already lost a chicken where it had left the twine. Flying off into who knows where. So i set up my range from enclosed instructions, Put targets and yardage markers out. The closest 20 yard chicken with board I had to set on a bucket to clear the top of garden pond and a bench downrange. From a bench and lead sled I focused in on the chicken and pulled the trigger. Down it went. With a smile I went to target. The chain had wrapped around my stake marker and no chicken to be seen . Oh boy. I began to scratch around on the leaves and every few leaves was yellow just like the target. Nothing ! So i went to shop and got a magnet on a wand then began to sweep the leaves. Nothing . I could only imagine I had smashed it into the soft ground forever. Bingo another idea, Dumped old gas out of leaf blower and put fresh in. Fired it up and went to work. Just kept blowing and sweeping and looking, 16 yards down range as I was nearing a gooseberry bush it appeared! If it had made it into the bush I would of never found it, Somehow it had unclipped. I then shot the next one the pig at 30, The turkey at 36, Then the ram at 45. All 4 shots had hit and all a bit to the left. Had a pretty strong west wind blowing, The .25 pellet was hitting pretty hard and the boards shifted some as the little steel targets flying tightened the chain tight. i will on a calm day make sure my left right is on but I think it was the wind. i am also going to maybe go to split rings for attaching the chain to target. Thanks again Wrench, BilletHead

    Oh she does Ronnie, Wednesdays and weekends we hobby together. Guess our incomes are not his and hers they go together in one fund. She has to work for insurance for one thing. Now for gearing up she has an equal autoloader shotgun just like mine that is hers, her layout blind and I guarantee she shoots her amount of shells. Then her three dedicated fly rods, waders just like mine too. Flys get tied in her preference of color combinations. As a matter of a fact the pink one from the fly swap you tied she got her mitts on pronto. She is half owner in our boats and has her own kayak. On and on I could go. On the plus side of this outdoor partnership. The Fringe Benefits are EXCELLENT ! Here is another example. Hunted Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Solo Tuesday and Thursday. Should not be out there myself but I did. So Tuesday morning 4AM get up. Pat was out there helping me load at 4:45. Wednesday it was 3AM with her along. Yesterday another 3AM wake up and she was helping load at 3:45. This morning she awakes me at 3AM. I told her no last night. She says are you sure you don't want to go? No, go back to sleep I can't do another day. This gal starts plucking goose and duck breasts and I singe the pinfeathers off then fillet off the breast halves. If I get behind she singes and fillets off too. I really don't know why I deserve her, BilletHead

    We use them at times, Ham and our friend who passed are the ones I blame . For me it is a fun addition to trips. When Pat and I fish for white bass the catching can get frantic and we use them for friendly competition we gig each other constantly during the blitz. Same when forum member @curtise and I get on the whites. The rubbing it in gets more serious then! BilletHead

    A couple short BilletHead hunts,

    Mallards there are and with the next few days we should be loaded with more. I have no excuse for not limiting out yesterday. You no the deal, one more pass. I should of called my shot the pass before one more pass , I know of limits coming out of the draw units for sure and I am sure there are limits coming out of the open units too. Here we are with birds and now the split hits tomorrow. BilletHead

    Nice Ham! I can see that you already have one click on that one. I suppose you went into the pet department and did some micro fishing in the fish tanks. What size hook and what type of bait for a neon tetra ? That would be a life list fish for sure! BilletHead
