Way Back Wednesday
I ran across this picture while digging through a box. It is a strong reminder of the adventures we experience hunting new places. Looking back I wish I took more pictures over the years.

Let's see some from your duckhunting past.

I need to digitize a lot of the older photo albums I have. For now here's a good contrast.

Looks like the past few decades have been good to you if those are representative of your seasons. Our bag have changed quite a bit. Gadwall are conspicuously absent these days and now we have cans, but not as many. Those are the biggest differences.

We see a lot more gadwall than in the past. Was always black ducks, broadbill and brant when I was starting out. Then mallards became more prevalent. Now I live farther south in the state and can hunt more wilderness areas that open up new species to see. The 2019 picture was a highlight shot of three days of limits with my father during one of the few cold snaps we've had. 25 years for me and 50+ for him of gunning in NJ helps us know when to go and where to go when conditions are right.

1970's.

Flooded timber duck hunt one day, and then Ruffed Grouse the next day, in Ohio.

Have older photo's from the 60's, but gotta dig em out.
