BPO Day 1 Report

I think I got the numbers right, three groups, ours was the high man with like 31 or so, the next group was 1 or 2 birds short and the third group had 10.

I will post up more details tomorrow, but the snows laughed at us but man oh man the specs worked like butter. It was unreal.

Some birds

LMAO... Yea Really!!!!


Wished we had yall on Sun. I had a group comming in from Utah. got to the lodge at 3:45. boss said they never showed up. So I went with Mark to the Hot hole of course. Hadn't had snows work like that all year. They tornado'd on us bout 9:00 and we knocked down 9. Snows were working good early. But no wind again. If we would have had some wind we would have had a truck load. Shot 20 geese but only 4 were specs and 2 skycarp mallets to boot.
All old arse snows and blues.

Had a great time, good to finally meet some of you guys.
I'm actually just happy to come back with body parts all still attached

LMOA!!!!!!!!!! I was looking for that comment, I knew it was comming. Funny thing is. CD was lucky enough to tag along. On those hunts. What is funnier yet, the comment came from someone who wasn't even there. The Guys that hunted know that CD was just floating around and jumped in the groups that he wanted too. Man o' Man....

BTW.. When the pics come back from Sun. I will show yall what snows look like

Isn't that the guy who blew the guides Mojo off the pole with 3 shots at the bay hunt last year! If it is, that shows his maturity level whether he had a good time or not.

That isn't how it went at all. I am having a hard time remembering, who came out on top fri? I wasn't going to bring up your "guide's cup" crap but keep it up and I will. Seems like the coalition didn't fare so well. Second place is the first looser after all.

Just wanted to say thanks again to Tbone and Coastal and all the other guides who worked for us. Good meeting everybody, Specgod, somehow I missed you. I had TMac all beered up and ready to go, but we couldn't find you.

Doe Nob -- Enjoyed your comments to our Miss boy.

When you find out how to properly scout for geese let me know. Maybe you are suppossed to put on a snow goose suit, infiltrate their ranks and ask them where they plan on feeding the following morning.

Shot the mojo off the pole, why???? If he didn't like it he could have requested it not be used right? I'd have shot staight thru purple and on into black on that one had it been mine. Hadn't he already been on a 70+ bird goose hunt that morning. If I recall properly the Friday groups really wacked em last year?

I think part of the problem is "ducks I wouldn't waste a shell on" (quote from the main board).

Well tough #$*(@. You don't always see all mallards, or all wood ducks, or all what ever the hell makes you happy. You're going to get a variety of game come by the spread. It may include coots, and sawbills. Enjoy it for what it is. You have the choice to shoot it, or leave it. Not every hunt will be a limit, not every hunt will be "premium" game. We've all caught a hard head, or seen a coot in the spread. At least I have fun trying and getting out of the house.

geesh grow up, realize that there's a world out there, and it changes from place to place.

One sour Lemon out of 28 ain't bad. He's just one of those guys that has to find something to complain about. He complained bout the slam hunts last year too. So nothing is good for this guy. These types come along every know and then. And we will have another some day. Funny thing is .......they usually come back the next year too, for some reason

I guess it's the HOT chicks of Midfield!
