Wow this forum died quick after the season ended. Just because the season is over doesn't mean you guys should stop participating. So what is everyone up to on their off season? I'll start. I am not hunting or fishing at the moment but I do have a couple of camping trips planed with my friends up at Sequoia NF, I'll try not to drink to much http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif. I did get a new duck gun (Extrema 2) love it and have been shooting skeet almost every weekend. Other than that and school, I'm waiting for the season to start again http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley_10sign.gif .

If you want to improve your bird shooting skills, you should try sporting clays. In my experience, sporting clays helped more than trap or skeet shooting. In fact, I think trap shooting actually set me back in the early years. I didn't really learn how to shoot until I tried sporting clays and I guess my dove hunt in Argentina didn't hurt either.
To answer your question, I plan on going on a turkey/hog hunt and a few fly fishing trips. That should keep me busy until next season.

I also shoot sporting clays. Usually go to Moore-N-Moore, a little price compared to others but they have a nice variety of different clay flying patterns.

No hunting or fishing for myself. Been training since January, getting ready to deploy to Baghdad this coming May. I've got a couple weeks off, starting this weekend, so I'll be back in Cali having a go at the stripers and maybe even try to sneak in a turkey hunt or two.

Headed back out to North Dakota tonight to do some more Snow and Blues Hunting. Had a great time about 3 weeks ago. We shot close to 100 over dekes in 3 days of hunting. Hopefully this warm weather will bring some Juvies up.

I'm still into the ducks. I'll get a 2 drake harvest on Roens this weekend. Then I'll be sorting through an Indian Runner nest (See avatar to left) for infertile eggs. I have 4 hens brooding and will hope to have a big batch of birds by late summer. We were raising ducklings for a wildlife rehab center for a couple of summers. Most of the birds are Easter chick discards.
I have trout trips planned, a scouting trip or two, a tune-up backpacking trip hopefully in August. If I beat those 1300 -1 odds and pull a billy goat tag I'll be scouting every other weekend all summer long.

I'm going to a DU Dinner this weekend, so still in the ducks a little bit. After that its time to finish things around the house. I need to landscape the backyard(if it ever stops snowing!!), texture and paint the garage, seal the deck, seal the garage floor, look for a trailer, but some more full bodies, get handloads dialed in for elk/deer season.....just a quick list off the top of my head.
Have a good summer, goose season will be here before you know it!!

Working hard on traditional archery to hopefully hunt with a recurve instead of my compound this year. Hunting turkeys and pigs. Getting all the projects done at home I've put off since last hunting sesaons. Found a lease of a blind in Los Banos for next season, looking for a cheap trailer to put there for the season.

Well for me Ive been down for the last month had surgery on my back again and had some more fusions done, It's been just a month now and im starting to walk a bit around the house. Cabin fever has set in and i'm going nuts, have to wear the back brace for another couple of months and am planning some fishing in the near future and getting ready for the season to start again. 4-Seasons hunt club is still open until the end of May and plan to go up and run my dog in a couple of weeks, just to get us both out of the house. Plus been wanting to try out my new Glock 22 for some target practice!!! Hey and Mike 3labs if you have a chance give me a ring or any of the guys I know from here want to go up to the hunt club and burn some rounds off let me know. But besides that all is good for now and the family is doing good tooooo, So until later all of you have a safe off season and look forward to talking with you all soon. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif
