2017/2018 WATERFOWL SEASON ENDS IN SLOW FASION
As good as the first split of this season was the second split was just that slow. Many factors were cited for the last part of the season that included food, weather, and a few others. Personally in my opinion most of the problem was follow though. We harvested over 5000 of the fast flying birds that hit the the water this year and we want to say thanks all of the hunters from all over the united states that came to our lodge and contribute to the count. Here are a few pictures from the last few days: See all the rest by clicking here.

DUCK SEASON IS OVER AND IT'S TIME TO GO CATCH SOME BIG TROUT
January, February until mid-March is big trout time not to mention that right now the redfish action is STUPID.
