First time for me. Never seen groups of 500 Mallards before this past Friday. Our group took 212 birds in 3 days, and 1 hour of the 4th day. Had to catch a plane out. Mallards, Pintails, Canadians, Specks.
Cloudy, foggy, and cold. My buddy said this was the worst trip they have ever had. He said they usually limit out every morning of 8 ducks and 8 geese per hunter. Great trip for me. 0915180949_HDR.jpg 0914181705.jpg 0914181705.jpg 0914180847c.jpg 0916181430d_HDR.jpg 0915180932_HDR.jpg

Guided hunt. Nearly impossible to hunt on your own fro
Guide or unguided? looks like a blast, Congrats on the great hunts!!!!
Guided hunt. Nearly impossible to go unguided in Alberta as a non-citizen from what I understand, which is very little.
 
Only the ones who make cheesy smart aleck comments. Lucky for you your American, so if you went up there you should be o.k. I couldn't guarantee it though.
I don’t know that Momma would ever let me spend $2750 on a trip so I doubt that would even be an issue. I have found Canadas are much better table fare than Canadians

I got your point. I just didn't think it was funny or see why you felt the need to be a so and so about it. I've never actually eaten a Canadian, but I'll take your word for it. If they are worse than the goose with the similar name as you say they are, then I have no interest in trying one either. I have never found the goose to be worth eating, outside of maybe some jerky.
 
If you ever go and shoot waterfowl in the wheat fields in the Canadian prairie you will go back I freelance there and gcan hunt 4 guys for a tad less than 2 k for a week that's food fuel shells license lodging all of it

You are missing out brother. Geese are delicious in a variety of ways!

Is there public land up there y’all hunt or y’all banging on doors asking permission? Sounds like a fun trip, Freelancing in more rewarding to me than guided.

I don't have to bang on too many doors now. I have been going since 2001 so I have made a few friends there. I'm also able to knock on a door if I find a field or two and don't know the owner
