When they started running promos for that show the wife and I just had to see what it was all about. I was afraid it would be a bunch of dumb hicks and filmed in a way to degrade hunters in general I was happy happy happy to see those guys are probably an editors worst nightmare when cutting a show.

so far my favorite SI line came from the samurai show " that thing could shave the hair off a dolphins chest and HEY you ever seen a dolphins chest! i was laughing so hard by then i never heard what he said after that. good clean show that shows good normal humans for once.

I never needed a duck blind when hunting fowl in ND we`d take some heavy canvas tarps folded a few times to lay on and shimmy under a wheat swath near a large slough on my Grandpas 800 ac wheat farm. Man,,, IF i only knew what i hated so much about farming when i was a kid, I would come to miss so much when i got older. boy would i do it different.

BTW most people complain about duck or goose being nasty to eat. Grandma never used anything but apples, onions, and some salt and pepper in a roaster. it always tasted fine to me.

Duck goulash over wild rice is hard to beat. Goose is another story however.

The best way for goose that I've found is to slice it into strips, marinate it in raspberry vinegret salad dressing and then stir fry it. It actually tastes a bit like Italian beef when you do it this way. You can also get fancy and bread it first with egg and flour before you stir fry it.

But give me grain-fed northern mallards anytime!!!!

When my dad died in 94 everyone was trying to get what they could of course. all I asked for was all of the guns he owned some threw a bit of a fit but i stood fast on it( IE wasn`t sure who would pawn them first) I still have all of them. My hunting gun was his remington model 11 semi auto. I loved shooting that gun because to eject the shell the barrel slides back into the breech. reminds me of old warship footage when the big guns fire. lots of memories of watching that barrel slide as a mallard plummeted to earth~!

It's not just the guns, but the memories they hold for us. :) viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9038
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

The old guns definately have a connection to the memories, but for me, it's the KNIVES that I've gotten from old friends now gone ythat are like gold. When you hold and use one of their knives it's a VERY personal connection...or at least it is for me. It's just like when you kill a deer with a broadhead that you personally put the razor edge on.

I have a sheath knife that my Grandfather made as a kit when he was a child. It has a handle made from stacked discs of leather, with an end cap plate and a ring through it to lock it together. It is heavier than most knives, somewhat clumsy, and doesn't hold an edge long. Has a bottle opener hook at the finger guard of the blade. ....i'll have to dig it out and post a pic. I'd rather lose one of my good knives than this one.

This item is not exactly hunting, but my uncle who gave me the love of the outdoors was a carpenter. After he died one of the items that I wanted was his workbench brush that he had used for many years. There was a bend in the wooden handle from his constant use over the years. It hangs on a nail on my workbench and every time that I brush away the sawdust I think of him. One of my most prized possession.
You are so right Woods, It's not the item, it's the memories.

My father passed away in 2010, and I have all of his handtools. These tools were always on his bench and they are some of my first memories of him. There's an old level that I use for my work that was his, and everytime I use it I think of him!

Sorry, Ohio Farms, I think we have derailed your thread. Back to waterfowl.

I, for one, would not be adverse to the idea of some of the Ohio boys getting together for a duck hunt. Maybe next year? Any interest out there? :)
