amazing duck hunting

As always, expectations have been exceeded. The duck hunting has been incredible the last few days. We hunt ducks in the morning, then again in the afternoon, 2 hunters/blind. Although some pairs of the hunters have had some slow hunts, only shooting a couple dozen, their daily limit was met with some spectacular hunts on the other half of the day. No problem obtaining our daily limit of 50 ducks/person/day. Most of the birds have been "big ducks" such as rosey bills, white faced ducks and one of the 3 species of tree ducks. A few teal, but I like the big ducks. I shot 3 with one shot today and had several "triples" and one "quad". No plugs in the gun are necessary, electronic calls, hunting after sunset. All the stuff that you can't do at home.

We just got to Cordoba for the doves and now have internet service. I'll try to get some pics up in the next day or so. All is well here and it looks like the tarpon fishing is happening at home. If I wasn't having such a good time here, I'd be upset that this trip is getting in the way of my tarpon fishing. Sounds like I've got my work cut out for me in order to catch up with some of the other guys......especially you Tom Cat.
