This was our first trip to canada, the first two days we experienced weather that was too nice but we still made birds. The last day we finally got the overcast and wind we were hoping for and the shooting was fantastic. We hunted over rags (mostly) in the morning and pass shot geese in the afternoon. Our final count for four hunters was 81 geese, 20 ducks, 5 cranes. We were supposed to hunt upland birds in the afternoon but the Canadian DNR had recently closed the area around Last Mountain Lake to hunting upland birds by non-residents. The guides still kept us very busy, they were very professional but at the same time made us feel like we were hunting with our friends. We could have shot alot more birds but were a little unsure of local customs such as the first morning we had flock after flock of ducks coming into the spread but with thousands of geese heading our way we didn't want to scare off the geese. Our guide set us straight and it was a great shoot even with the bluebird weather. We also cleaned our own birds after the first morning shoot but it was quickly apparent that we were going to have to use the bird cleaning services. As the outfitter put it "Did you come to hunt or clean birds?". It actually worked out to our benefit coming back because each bird was individually wrapped and marked which made clearance through customs a breeze. I could go on but if you have any questions feel free to send a e-mail. I've been waterfowling for 30 years and this was definitely the hunt of a lifetime for us.
