    Default All the way north... and back home...

    Since the season was out here my brother, brother in law, and I headed north to find some birds....we made a stop Saturday in Nc to find some cans but the flight was slow, and only managed one. So we headed further up 95 and crossed the mason Dixon line. Sunday was our scout day, and the fog was so thick visibility was less than 50 yds so it was tough. Cooler air moved in that night and things cleared up. We were on the water before daylight, and as I was attempting to cut a zip tie, I buried a tanto serrated blade just above my thumb. I think my BIL, and brother were more worried than I, so we turned around, made the run back across the bay to go to the hospital. By the time we got back to the ramp, I had managed to stop the bleeding and on the way to back the truck up, I made the decision we came here to kill ducks not go to the hospital. I walked back to the boat, jumped in and said letís go...after a little argument I convinced them I was fine so we headed off back into the bay. Birds moved well and managed a limit of blacks, losing one that hit the water dead, and never came back up after splashing...the dog hunted and hunted and never found it...

    Day 2 was much slower but my brother managed a band

    Day three the weather had changed from 65 degrees to snow forecast...by the time the sun came up and birds were moving, they were stupid acting....we were back at the ramp before 9 with limits of blacks and a couple brant...we packed up and headed south

    Sounds like a very cool trip!!!
    Listen to your elders. Not because they are always right but because they have more experiences of being wrong.

    Great hunting. Good reminder to carry a small first aid kit with super glue. I try to check my kit annually. Will go do so now.

    Kudos. Looks like a fun excursion.

    Aside from the brant are blacks all that flies there? Kinda figured y'all would kill some mallards or gadwall or something else also. Unless you were going specifically for blacks of course.

    there were plenty of mallards,teal, gadwall,some pintails and snows around, but the particular area we decided to hunt was mostly blacks, lots of divers but we didn't mess with them... we honestly could have finished out our limits a few hundred yards from the ramp, with mallards, we went to decoy blacks...
