    Default Duck season over

    The duck season in western Montana went out this week. Here is a pic of Bart and decoys on the final day.

    Right before sunset, five swans flew over my hide at 25 yards.

    I had a very good season, getting out nearly 20 days. Only a few daily limits, but I was skunked only two or three days.
    Here are some pics from the season that I haven't posted yet.

    Diane and Bart.

    That's a good looking lab you have there. Are divers pretty common waterfowl fare there?

    It was a good season while the birds were flying.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing. It was a good year! Seems like it went to darn fast. Here is a shot of my son (son's depending on picture) and friends with some birds. They take the old man on occasion. Seems like it used to be the other way around! ;?) Good times!

    JLS, Bart is a very handsome lab. He is also a pointing lab as well as a great duck dog.
    I only hunted public water this year. Where I hunted there were very few mallards. There are lots of mallards in Montana, but not on the public water I hunt.

    JEL, great pictures of your sons and there waterfowl. What state are you in?

    The closing dates in western Montana were late this year. There was also a few day split at the beginning of January. You can't hunt 'em if the season isn't open!!
