Hunting Fiascos

Over the years I have learned that the greatest part about duck hunting the way we do it is the fellowship memories and the stories.  There are many great stories that go along with every hunting party.  If for some reason your group does not have a story then either y'all have not been together very long or y'all are just plain boring.

The Quail Fry


On Saturday April 30, all of the guys that shot birds at Springrove got together with our families for a quail fry. It was a great time of fellowship. We met at Bernie’s house. Bernie fried the quail and some French fries. Joe cooked cobbler and cornbread in the Dutch ovens. Mickie cooked a pot of grits. I helped out wherever needed.

He Thought He Could Walk On Water

He just did not have the faith.

Let me first explain that we all have our fears.  Mine is spiders and most of the guys here at Briary River are terrified of snakes.  I respect snakes but I am not afraid of them.

Between Seasons Drag

I noticed a couple weeks ago that the between seasons drag was back. It never fails. We have all kinds of big plans for what needs to be done. After duck season ends Joe is always gung ho about getting everything done right then. After a couple weeks that passion fades and the amount of things getting done slows down. This year it took the slow down a little longer to start. The excitement of starting something new pushed up a little farther than normal.

Duck Pond Etiquette

There are rules and etiquette to hunting anywhere.  A beaver pond is no exception.  In fact private land is where they are the most important because it can cost you your hunting buddies


We all know the guy.  The one no one wants to hunt with because he is a pain in

the butt.  He always wants the best blind, he always takes the wrong shots, and he kills every bird he points his gun at (or at least he thinks he does).  Well this is your chance to not be “That Guy”.
