Scott Morgan and friends celebrated New Year’s Eve flat on their backs in layout blinds in a field near Baldwin City, KS. Using only fourteen shell decoys, they had hundreds of Canadas checking them out all afternoon. Conscientious hunters that they are, Scott said they could easily have limited out but didn’t want to clean that many birds so they quit with six honkers in the bag.
Good dog work is at least half the fun of a waterfowl hunt and Scott’s Lab Kola did her part by dragging one goose on a 1/8-mile retrieve. The big gander weighed in at 15.5 lbs. and had a vise grip on Kola’s ear all the way.
Now these guys know how to celebrate!
