To add to the list of "firsts" for the year, good ole' RIGG-A-MORTIS shot this mute as it decoyed into our field Honker spread. Came all the way in looking to sit right in the pocket in our bean field on Saturday morning, and while we all sat there arguing in the blind about whether or not it was a mute, Cory had heard enough discussion. Just before it was too late Cory made a fantastic shot on this mute as it was looking to bail. The thing folded stone dead at about 45 yards, never seen anything like it. I anticipate there to be some discussion surrounding whether or not a Mute will hit the fields to feed with Canadas.. well my mind is made up on that.



Couple of our last goose hunts from the year...

Happy to have had the opportunity to get in some fine shoots with some fine people.

I nominate Rigg for HPA's Waterfowler of the Year Award!
Pretty amazing for one man to kill these different birds in the same year.
Well Done.

I'll nominate him just for the shot he made while sitting next to me. His Stoeger's broken bolt rendered the gun a 1-shot wonder most of the morning. He folded that thing at a solid 45 yards stone cold dead.

Yes Congrats on one heck of a season! What's next? A neck collared double banded GPS snow goose? Haha
Hahaha I hope so! Either that or a banded Gobbler.

Well boys, it was definitely an Awesome season. Not just for myself, but for our crew in general. Haha, waterfowler of the year award, now that's pretty funny. Now if I shoot a banded, triple bearded gobbler this spring, I'm gonna start getting freaked the F out! Thanks for the kind words gentleman.

Drakes speaks the truth. Our crews dispatched nearly a doz. of these rodents, and this guy was by far the smallest. The way this bird was killed though, made it awesome. Here's a few from a couple years back. As a size comparison I'm 6'3.

It's rare that I physically laugh at something somebody says on HPA but this is a great comment.
