skunked again

Took my boy to Sauvie Island this morning hoping to take advantage of the special September goose season plus I wanted to wander around the north unit to see where to go once ducks start coming.

Big sign at the voluntary hunter check station: No goose hunting in the North Unit. The regs appear to say otherwise but ok. Stuck some small shot in for quail and we walked around for a few hours. Heading back, and literally 5 minutes from the car, a covey of nice plump birds flush right next to me but at that point we were in "going home" mode and I wasn't prepared. They dove into a blackberry patch the size of my house. Oh well.

If anyone is familiar with Sauvie and wants to show me the ropes for hunting the area I would much appreciate it.

Also, haven't talked to anyone this morning (or gotten an email yet) but there was going to be a Corenelius protest. (had to miss it due to hunting) I should get some pictures/video of it later on.

Did ya happen to Flush any Mexicans?

Or, is that to far away for them to haul their stolen property?

Daniel, yes we went to Cornelius today.
I wrote a long post under the "Ghost Town", post on NW Republican, as I was motivated by the article and started writing and he mentioned your Blog also.

enough politics, my wife begs, for today my friend.
Hope you bag some birds next time.

You have to let it go sometimes or you just burn out. While I am very dedicated to the cause I am glad that I went hunting with my boy today.

I hope he's a better shot than ME! Good luck next time. Quail breasts wrapped in bacon are a great hors d'oeuvre. (especially if someone else did all the work in finding 'em.)

looks like you went looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Mexicans are easier game

So you are advocating for killing Mexicans? And you say you guys aren't racists. Go figure...
