    Leaving for my annual trip to Idaho tomorrow. Usually go in November because of my buddies work schedule but going for opening week this year. Hoping some cinnamons are still around. They shot some blues and greens on the opener this weekend. Got Andrew Hadden of Hadden Hailers to make him a call for hosting us every year. Told him use some antler as he's a big game hunter but he had free reign to build whatever. Turned out sweet! Stayed tuned for pics.

    I saw way more big ducks in MT and WY last week than I had expected. Seamed like every time I turned around if there was slow moving or standing water I was looking at a group of geese or ducks. Your due some good shoots after the last few KY seasons.

    Im sure you will find plenty. I didn't see as many as usually do while out there bird hunting In ID a week ago but i wasn't in the part of the state where you are going . Hope that cinnamon finally shows up for you.

    Day 1 going in blind, we were 2 points away from the x. Got a few shots in and scouted most of the day. Took a few mins to climb up for an awesome sunrise photo over the decoys. Had some moose and tators for dinner.

    If I could pack up the extended family and convince my wife, we’d move to Idaho/Montana yesterday.

    Did ok for zero wind. Like everywhere the wind is a factor, perhaps even more in the west

    Yeah the wind killed us. Scouting payed off though. Had a dandy shoot yesterday afternoon. Really unusually warm here, like low 70s in the afternoons and low 40s in the morning.

    Found a big goose feed. Setup and ended up being covered up in ducks and only a small group of geese came back but I'm not complaining.

    Pretty fair afternoon. Different world out there for water fowl than what we have back here. Limit is six mallards , isn't it? Plus two others?
