Duck Season: Preparations — 8 Comments

  1. I will be up to exploring another part of New Mexico. We moved from our last camping spot because of a winter storm warning. We’re now further south and at a lower elevation so we will hopefully be out of the snow. All of next week we’ll be in one of the biggest wintering spots for sandhill cranes and snow geese – at Bosque del Apache. We’ll be attending their annual “Festival of the Cranes”. We got some awesome photographs here last year when we passed through.

  2. Good luck to Termite! I do love a good, roasted duck! Who needs turkey for Thanksgiving if you have ducks to roast or smoke??
    Our weekend is going to be short since I have a birthday party planned for tomorrow evening for our grandsons 13th. And, I am FINALLY going to get to see my new, great grandson!! His grandmother (my daughter) told her son and DIL she was kidnapping him to bring him to his first party and to see us. Bless her!! They agreed so they could have some quiet time.
    Hopefully with five older grandsons and one granddaughter here, I’ll get some of the leaves raked & bagged so I can pick the bushel or more of pecans up from the yard before the rain sets in Sunday. I know they are under those leaves, I feel them when I walk and hear them landing on the cars!

    • So, Cammy, are you all recovered from your surgery? The Captain is out looking for pecans right now, but the high storm winds from last year’s two hurricanes messed up the trees. They were full of pecans at the time, but this year there are none, it seems. I hope they recover and make pecans next year. He loves to sit in his chair and shell and eat them. Congrats on new great grandbaby! Enjoy the time!

      • If you are ever in this area at this time of the year, grab a bucket and stop by. My back yard has 3 huge pecan trees and 3 more overhang it from the neighbors yards! I have picked up about 8 gallons so far and they are just beginning to fall. I give most to mom and we shell them and some we sell and most we freeze to cook with and give away. Hubby blowed the leaves into two big piles for the kids to play in then mulched them when they left. I got about 2 more gallons picked up. Wish the Captain had some of them.
        Going to pick up black walnuts later this week at the neighbors. Hope the hunt went well.

  3. While y’all are making your way to the duck blind, I plan on being snug in my bed. I’ll make my way to the kitchen about 6:30 to drip a pot of Community Dark Roast coffee. I’ll then put my feet up, drink my coffee and read the newspaper. Since I won’t be going fishing, I’ll have to settle for watching other people catch a few fish on TV. Hubby will take over the remote …college football. I’ll crochet while he watches (correction…sleeps through) football. Sunday starts off like Sat…. Coffee, paper, TV fishing, then it’s off to church. NFL football replaces college football. I do admit though I enjoy watching LSU and the Saints. It’s pretty boring around here during football season!

  4. Final prep for Loozy. Sealing up the crawl space. Shuffling garage to fit saturn in too. Pretty nice today. Fished this am crappie (sac’s) white bass, bluegill,walleye, and a green sunfish. Tossed them all back.
