Shallow Water Mud Slingin’

The morning was a bust. Saw two skunks, two beavers and an otter, but barely a duck anywhere near my setup. Before heading back to the truck I wanted to inspect a beaver dam that I’ve been watching all year. Low water has kept me away from it and just enough water to skate back to it was the case on this day. The motor worked for it, but I was able to get in close to two sides of the dam despite random hard clay bottom in spots. Here’s a few clips of the digging, clawing and scratching required to simply get a look at this dam. I cut out the extended mud blasting efforts to save time, but trust me there were a few moments of slow progress or even hopping out of the boat to get turned around.

 

Midday River Scouting for Ducks

While there’s hardly any ducks being killed around here, there’s not much else to do other than run the low rivers and see what’s out there. Saw some interesting things but mainly just cruising up and down the river.

Afternoon River Run


Nothing special here, just a nice cruise down the river on Saturday afternoon.

Banging Off of Trees on the Last Day

Ending a season that wasn’t all that great with a few bumpy boats rides seemed appropriate. We had a blast even with the few ducks we managed to shoot.

Post-Hunt Ride in Brent’s Boat

After hunting Sunday morning (not it the rain thankfully) we made another lap around the area and turned the Camera on. I had the camera on the inside of the grab bar this time, to protect it from limbs. The view isn’t as good of the bow from that mounting location, but it’s still pretty cool.
