    [QUOTE="May do a Gallinule harvest, towards Teal Season end. Need to add them to my "Living off Da Land" stock pile. I'm sure they'll be tasty in a "Bacon Wrapped, Shish-Ka-Bob".[/QUOTE]

    9/30/17- Shot me some gallinule this afternoon. Will grill them soon.

    Was going to go shrimping today but wasn't up for the crowds. Attached pic's of Thursday fishing/shrimping trip.

    We weren't quite reduced to shooting gallinules, but it was a tough one: numerically worst since Ike blew through on opening morning and flushed our area. Still had some fun, helped put at least some teal on a lot of tables and everyone I carried was hunter enough to be good about it. Was, of course, some wishing it was open for the early north winds, but no one blaming Larry or the Commission for not anticipating them.

    Well then, not to disappoint let me be the first to blame Larry and the Commission.

    Worst teal season I can remember... maybe ever.. kill totals were about 20% of normal (since the limit went to 6, anyway)... did not limit out one time, and I know that's the first time that's ever happened... I'm quite sure the early cool fronts and late heat are entirely to blame... oh well always next year

    We finished how we started, no birds and fairly warm. Very poor season for us. Hopefully DC will give us a report from the big lake?

    Ohh..... I know, I know. I expected someone to poop on it, yet.......... I don't care. Times are a changing.
    We can remain stuck-up as conditions/waterfowl density & species change...or.... ADAPT !!!!

    It was an okay early season up here. I was able to make 5 hunts, all public. Shot a limit opening day, and the last day. Had 2 other okay hunts where we shot 9 and one poor hunt where we shot 3. Ended up with 39 birds total.
    I saw more big ducks than teal the last weekend.
