Finally got my butt back to the good ole U.S of A. Headed to the friends of the in-laws land. I have permission to hunt it a "couple" times a year. They spent alot of money setting it up for clients. And basically give me free reign if I call early enough in advance. I called the day I landed and got permission to hunt today. Grabbed a buddy and wandered around in the dark like an idiot, the water is so low nothing looked right and i couldn't get my bearings straight. Finally found the water and got set up. Turns out we got lucky, more cans than you can shake a stick at. My buddy had never shot a can so we waited and passed up MANY waiting for a big bull. Finally we had a decent drake drop it and he crushed him. He was happier than a pig in poopoo. I dropped a hen to finish of my dead mount. Missed a couple opportunities to bag a few wigeon but all in all a good day.

Yeah its no joke, I think it started out as a gravel pit or some sort of thing where they stripped the ground.

That sure look exactly where I hunted Saturday morning. Public water, tons of cans. That tree line right behind you is a dead giveaway...

I do read them. I see where he is at, the water he is hunting, and the background in the pics matches the location to a T. And, the birds he's describing of boo-koo canvasbacks.

Not bashing the guy on his hunt, just that that's not private water. I do love me some cans. Lots of good bulls there. Gonna hit them this week one day again...

Nice can.

Pick of the water is killing me. I sure wish we could get some lake filling rain.

I'm guessing he's 2-300 yards upriver of the pile of redbull and snuff cans that always seem to be there from the dooshers laugh
