FIRST 9 DAYS OF DUCK SEASON HAVE BEEN SPECTACULAR

Ariel surveys done a week before the opening of our duck season estimated 1,58 million ducks in the state. Over the first 9 days our hunters have made a big dent in that estimation. Our hunters have harvested over 1600 of the fast flying fowl and each of our blinds is averaging over 14 ducks per hunt. There are spectacular numbers for us and we are way ahead any year we can remember in quite a while. Each cold front through our area continues to bring in more ducks to the marsh.

Our specially prices hunting trips will begin around Thanksgiving so call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability for you and a friend to come experience a gentleman's duck hunt you won't soon forget. Hell.... The GUMBO alone is worth the price of the trip.

Here are a few pictures for the last few days for you to enjoy. Click on this link and take a look at all of them..

NOVEMBER CATCHING CONTINUES TO BE GOOD AFTER MORNING DUCK HUNTING

The cast part of our most popular BLAST & CAST trips continues to be very good with limits of Flounder, speckled trout and redfish coming to the dock most everyday. As long as the weather stays good and the lake remains clear you should get over here and shoot some ducks in the morning and catch some fish in the afternoon. Here are a few pictures from the last couple of days. Click here and take a look at all of them

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

View in our recipe book here

Many of you have asked me for the recipe for the special crackers that we make and give to friends and family this time of the year. We have had this recipe for so long I'm really not sure where we got it but they are the BEST little snack that you will ever make or give to someone. They have been called COON ASS CRACKERS for so long that's all we know them as.

Sorry we don't have a picture of the finished crackers but we ate most of them and our big dog BJ got up on the counter and finished them off.

COON ASS CRACKERS

  • 1 box cheap saltine crackers
  • 2 T. crushed red pepper
  • 2 oz. pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing, dry
  • 1 1/2 cups of pure canola oil (only pure canola)
  • Gallon glass jar

Put crackers and all dry ingredients in gallon glass pickle jar.  Add canola oil last - roll for 4-5 minutes - don't shake - wash jar after each batch.


My Thought

"Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment"..Amen

 

Have a great week and remember "Ya Shoulda been here yesterday"
