One last hunt for a few members as the Missouri season comes to an end. Lots of grey ducks in the shoot but still a fun time nonetheless.
While the warmer weather hasn’t helped our duck season any, it has enabled me to take my son on his first ever duck hunt. The smile on his face in the pictures says it all!
Duck season is drawing near! Here’s a look at a few of our places as we begin pumping them full for the upcoming season.
Here’s a few pictures of the recent interior upgrades to the lodge. Such a great place to hang out after a cold morning in the blind.
It’s been a decent season for us so far at C&L. With a couple of weeks left, I just wanted to take some time and show you a little of what we have been doing. We have been stacking them up and it has been a blast! The most memorable part so far this year was showing some boys from Florida what our Midwest winters are all about. The day they left to come hunt with us, it was 70 degrees in Florida; the first morning we hunted it was 2! Needless to say, it was a bit of a shock for them!
After last year’s success, Blake decided to bring his team back this year for some more fun with C&L. As the pictures prove, we were successful again this year. Some time in the truck and we were able to find the birds and put them in the boys’ laps! It was a fun couple of days with a good group of guys.
With the advice of club owner Levi Daniel, member Nick Nabholz was able to take the beautiful trophy during rifle season. Nick through together a last minute hunt and Levi was able to recommend which stand to sit in for the best opportunity on a trophy. The first evening of the hunt, this 156″ monarch stepped out and Nick was able to harvest him. Congrats to Nick Nabholz
With regular duck season two weeks ago and youth season less than a week away, we have been spending some time getting our pools ready for duck season. We have had two club work days and worked on cleaning up the pit blinds, brushing the blinds in, running pipe for the pumps, turning the pumps on and just about anything else that you can think of that needs to be done before season starts. All pumps are now on and water is running. Now we just need the migration to push the birds down into our area.
With turkey season winding down, club member Nick Nabholz was able to take a nice gobbler in Kansas. This put our total at 28 birds for the year!
