Official 2018 Upland and Waterfowling thread...
« on: August 22, 2018, 09:36:10 AM »
Diversity is the key.....to traffic...

1.. Conditions in your area....ie. Crops , water , bird numbers .

 I expect a good season in the Okotoks East and south areas .....
   Way more water than the last three years and way less canola !

 I'm going to Stettler area for Sept 1 north fowl opener ...
 
  Not sure about the south Sept 8 ...opener . The big
  fishin water is holding big piles of Ducks ...
   The griff and I are both healthy ,  I have helped a couple
    of younger guys with their first pointers ...and they are wired
     for waterfowling. I have attached a scabbard to my Walker ....
     Lol .
      We are going to be running big field spreads ( 100 plus Full Bodies )
        should be fun ...

       Lurkers jump in , thnx

      This is the Grff in his new hunting coat

Newbie here. Looking at getting into hunting duck and geese. Where to start? Where to go? What to use? Is a 20 Gauge sufficient? Or is Bow better? Looking around the Okotoks and surrounding area.
