2nd trip to Texas

Unread post by st.croixsuckerboy » January 12th, 2017, 2:00 pm

I just got word today from the Taxidermist that my birds from last year were mounted yesterday, and should be able to pick them up in a few weeks. One bird had some feather slippage, so I told him to just throw it away. I cant wait to see them.

I was able to make the trip again this year. We hunted the same area with some pretty good success. We ended up killing 7 species of ducks in 6 days of hunting. We roughly killed 50 birds, shoulda had more but that's another story. One day we only killed 2.

The first afternoon we killed our limit in a hour and 15 minutes... at noon! It was pretty fast a furious with nice widgeon, and I doubled on a flock of pintails killing two nice drakes.

The next part is hard, and most everyone from this board already knows.

During the tip my dog drake started acting a little off (threw up after the first hunt, and started coughing every once and a while). Giving him a bath when we got home we found a mass on his neck. We took him to the vet and set up a appointment with a specialist for last Tuesday. He had his good days and bad days last week. Last Saturday he had a really bad day. We ended up having to put him to rest Sunday morning.

Its been hard the last few days, but I'm glad to know we had yet another amazing trip. We shared many good hunts (and naps) together over the last nine years. :beer:

I'm sure its just me. But I'll never be able to adjust my emotions, feelings or fair minded thinking as to why the pets that we love so much. That give us so much personal joy when around them, are given such a short time with us on this earth. :cry:
