the plans and wanted Ken to take the first rabbit to see how it

Was reading about your ND trip, we were there the same week as you
and we also ended up sitting around on Sunday waiting for the rain
to lighten up. Your mudded
gave me horrible flashbacks. A friend of mine did get
his truck stuck in the mud roads once and almost a second. I had
a little bit beefier tire so I made it through all right but it
was still nerve racking, especially with ditches on each side of
road. Anyways, we had a great time. I applied for a swan permit
this year and shot a nice one the second day out there except......the
hole we hunt is very muddy to begin with and with all the extra
rain it only made it worse and when the swan hit the muck it stained
it pretty good. I tried to wash the feathers off for the picture,
but as you know that stuff is like trying to wash off tar.
Shannan from Auburn Hills Mi, sent in this picture of two geese
that he shot in North Dakota by belly crawling 50 yards along a
slough to jump shoot. What a blast.
Scott from Genesee, County Mi. - Reports that they seen a ton of
birds during Michigans late waterfowl season. We hunted all day
both days and took a total of 21 birds. Including a hooded merganser
and this beautiful Drake Pintail.
Field Reporter Paul from Linden took this nice gobbler
We got there late Wed. afternoon but got out for an evening hunt
about 6 pm. I had one nice gobbler come in about 35 - 40 yds out
and tried to make an around the corner shot (outta one of his deer
blinds) and missed. My right shoulder still hates me for attempting
Noticed the birds liked to travel the edge of a swale about 70 yds
from where I was sitting in the deer blind so I carried my Lucky's
Tent Blind in and set it up near the edge of the swale before dark
and listened for fly-ups but didn't hear any.
The next morning, Thursday, we were set up before light and had
a bird gobbling on the roost on a ridge to my left about 200 yds.
Gave him a few soft yelps and continued with some clucks and purrs,
within a half hour or so I could see him heading down the ridge
toward the edge of the swale where I was 70 yds, 60 yds, 40 yds,
35 yds but behind some thick brush but headed toward my blind. Then
for no apparent reason he angled off into the swale. (heard him
gobbling in that direction a little later, he musta heard or spotted
a live hen). Well, about this time I thought my turkey hunting luck
was goin' to hold and it would be another hunt of close encounters
The rest of the morning was uneventful there was a few periods of
sporadic gobbling but they where henned up and not moving. Went
in about 9:30 for breakfast and a nap. Headed back out about 3:00
pm nothing happening had not heard anything or saw any birds all
afternoon. Then about 6 pm I see a Jake sneekin' through the swale
about 25 yds in front of me, then another Jake, then Jake no. 3,
I was thinkin' well no Jakes yet I still got a lot of season left
when between me and Jake #3 walks Mr. Long beard, shotgun up as
he moved past some thick brush and as he entered the next window
in my blind I let him have it at about 10 yds.
The bird weighed in at a little under 19 lbs and had a 10.25"
beard with a pair of 3/4" spurs.
Field Reporter Bud took this turkey Saturaday morning, it weighed
in at 22lbs. and had a 10 ½ “ beard.

Leo of Pinckney Michigan took this Smokey Gray in the Michigan Zone
ZZ, 2008 Hunt.
Paul & friends had a great opening day to to the 2006 early
Michigan goose season.
Ernie one of the Muck Boy Field Reporters
took this Hybred on Thankgiving Day, while hunting at the Shiawassee
River State Game Are
So what is it crossed with?
We have had a a few emails helping us to idendify this duck. Some
of the replys included mallard/common eider, hybred mallard crossed
with a white tame duck, immature mallard drake and mallard crossed
with a snow goose.
We think we got the real scoop came from Rob & Darla at RCL
Retrievers. The minute they seen it they identified
it as a Snowy
Mallard, first I have ever heard of such a thing. So
Click on the link and check out what they are. Looks like someone
lost a prize. Ernie plans on having this bird mounted and when he
gets it done we will post a pictue of it.
