What is it? Speck x Snow? Canada x Speck? Something else? Helps us out. • I’ve been waiting to post this since the day I saw it go down. Laying in whites with nothing but socks and skinny decoys around us. Thirteen guns. 120ish dead birds. With one bird none of us will forget. This one. Don’t worry. He DED. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek

Saturday morning leg day with a couple of the Harris Training Systems boys today. Long story short these fellas straight murdered me. Great job today @matthewr5380 and @mario1088. Next Saturday will be here soon enough, so get ready. (I had to snag that last pic of @matthewr5380 over the trash can, because... he ded 😂 he actually outlifted us all though, so he is there for good reason) @riseathleticclub #harristrainingsystems #theyded #imded #weallded #legday #riseathleticclub #rise #personaltrainer #coach #Godisgood #blessed #thankful

Which one are you!? • First off, big thank you for taking interest on that turkey post that went up a week ago! Seriously appreciate that. Honestly wasn’t expecting it, but I was thrilled to see it! • But second, back to my heartbeat. Flooded woods and friends in the “winter” months of LA! Sixty days of chances to chase ducks (or ghosts if we’re referring to this year’s game) and more if we’re fortunate enough to travel. It’s hard to wait it out till November, it’s close to labor pains really. It’s something not many understand. Say what you want, not even all duck hunters do. As unfortunate as it sounds, even some that struggle with the wait now, won’t in years to come. For some it’s a part of them. But for a small few, it courses through every part of them, like blood from a heartbeat. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

Raising children is a creative endeavor, an art rather than a science. - Bruno Bettelheim. • She isn’t technically mine to raise, but really she is. My favorite hunter, not huntress. My favorite girl. My most willing partner in crime. My only god daughter. J. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

Mid morning. Pick up the dead ones. Rearrange the fake ones. Shoot more real ones. • They said there were 150ish birds on this tank. The sentence that followed made me pick up my jaw that had dropped in disbelief. “We could take 10 guys out there.” Ha. Not where I’m from homeboy. • Obviously the rules are a little different west of me. The birds piled in perfectly and the clients shot nearly 9 limits of wigeon that were trying to land on their boot bags. It was incredible and just one of many ideas that keeps me in my lane. Birds may be birds, but the “rules” are absolutely different over there. Can’t wait to get back to @DryCreekOutfitters with the boys! • • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek

There’s a very small number of guys that I chat with on a regular basis that I’ve known for their entire life. Here’s both of them. One since kindergarten and the other since his first breath. I hope to keep that pace until my last one. • This day was foggy enough that birds weren’t even visible until the 100 yard mark. They low and slow following the sound of our calls and the eventual sight of our spread. The fog would burn off, the geese would quickly find their way to the loaf, and we would pack up with smiles to head home. • The little one was a little over zealous in his help but that made it all the more exciting. The big one was understanding enough to go along with it as I ran to grab the camera. Uncle Jeff has a new tagalong whether he wants one or not and Drake has that look in his eye already. There’s gonna be many more days like this one, but until then, I wanna remember all of them like this. • • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #GunnerEffect

I know we’re supposed to be swapping to a Springtime state of mind. Fish and turkey should be on our brains is what the calendar and attention graph says. • It’s honestly a struggle for me to shift from waterfowl to anything. It doesn’t matter the time of year or the temperature outside, I’m never okay with it. Thankfully snow geese let me put off the inevitable a little bit longer. Thankfully we don’t have to guess what this hound is picking up because all that matters is he’s picking it up. A rice field. Some dudes. A dog. A good time. • Photo For: @TrifectaAgency / @SunglassHut • Big thank you to the ones who gave me the nod to tag along! • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #GunnerEffect

Recently @DryCreekOutfitters posted this image. It was followed by the simple caption that read exactly what it needed to. • It was a struggle to get into this field. @Tanner_Cobb urged us that “it’ll be aite” while @LeeMcc35 and myself were a little less confident. None of us were wrong. It wasn’t easy from anywhere, but we made it happen either way. • A few solid people from TN and some supposed slayers from South Texas were with us that day. The sky was black with ducks that morning and several met their end before it was over. It was one of my very first sheet water experiences and it did not disappoint. I was thrilled. • After several volleys and very climatic mid morning this was how we decided to leave the field. It had been a rollercoaster of emotions for all of us. The birds, the shots, the ending, and the exit. Neither of the fellas wanted me to take this shot, but I just couldn’t help it. We had a couple A-Frames, at least 7 dozen decoys, some seats, buckets, and all of our gear in one very loaded down @PolarisORV. We left nothing in that field but we took away some memories that will NEVER be forgotten. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

California Dreamin’ • Honest to goodness, we didn’t burn em up this day. My first “snow storm” which would equate to a Louisiana blizzard was enough for me to go home and call it good. I LOVED it. • We came around the corner and saw what we needed to see. Some birds, some wind, and a tule thicket big enough to hide two boats. This was midway through the final sit of the first day. Some sure enough boot lips gave it up. • Plenty more stories from the trip, and I’m sure I’ll eventually get to those, but this is about this day. It was literally Jekyll and Hyde. We watched the walls of snow approach and then in an instant the skies cleared and the sun showed up. Only thing is I really preferred Hyde over Jekyll. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

Believe it or not, sometimes I grab a gun. Granted the gun I’m holding isn’t mine but it’s a gun nonetheless. A wad of sprigs came in and a few decided to stay around. It really wasn’t up to them at this point, but those few were constant company the rest of the morning. Not really lively, but still a good time. • This one in particular hid for a while and when someone spotted him I grabbed the first gun they handed me and took off. I was on the end and rumor has it that I could’ve caught him in the air if I needed to. I was “flying”. I didn’t know. I just knew the fellas was trying to pull a smooth one on us. @Sullivan_Tristan seems to think it was possible. But that would be silly. That’s why I took the gun. Pellets fly with way less effort. • Thanks to @TravisBrubakerImage for snagging up my weapon and shooting a few my way on the return. I’m not real sure what was going through @_KileJones mind right then but I’m betting it was worth a listen. And King, well that guy deserves a 👑 after the mud he dealt with that week. @DryCreekOutfitters wasn’t dry at all this year. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek

Not saved by the bell. • Tbh we had trouble finding a spot for this shot. No idea where to lay them and no idea how to set them up. As luck would have it we spotted these lockers laying in some thick and tall grass. We picked them up, broke the grass over that was in front it, and then propped them up with an old marine battery. Don’t ask how any of that stuff got there because we have zero clue. A slow early morning turned into an eventful late morning. Just another lesson learned towards waiting the mallards out. Guess the lockers were meant for us after all. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek

No shots fired for me over the last week. Not from a gun anyway. Spent the last part of the week with @HuntersHelpingHeroes and @SnowAddictionsGuideService holding a camera and hanging with some SOLID company. • Hunting these white birds has been rough all over and no matter what you throw at them, they still will make you feel like “less of a man” when they’re done with you. I’m not even an amateur but I know the difference between tough hunting and tough learning. I hope my truck bed or one of my buddy’s looks like this next time we go. I honestly hope you can’t see the bed for the geese. Realistically that’s probably not going to be the case, but I assure you it won’t be for lack of effort. Here’s to the weekend that hasn’t made it here yet. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #BoysAreBackInTown #DiveBombSquad

Leaving tomorrow for a couple days at @SnowAddictionsGuideService with @HuntersHelpingHeroes. Expecting some good wind and mild temps according to The Weather Channel app (🤷🏽‍♂️). Was gonna hold off and post this photo later but I may forget or just look over it. • I was able to make another trip with the guys last weekend. It’s getting funner and funner hunting with some of the few I’ve hunted with longer than most. We never say where and unless something seriously life threatening happens, we probably never will. And even then we aren’t sure if that’s enough. Headed back soon, just not soon enough. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #BoysAreBackInTown

I’m a few days behind on posting this, but that was sort of intentional. With all the fuss about corn and warm water (🙄) I figured a trip north was in order. Made it even better that it happened with these guys. Maybe one day we’ll pile white birds high together, but this was plenty on that day. My birthday. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #BoysAreBackInTown

Spent Tuesday with the guys I try to spend most of my time with during season. I guess you could call it a birthday goose hunt. On the first day of my 33rd year I was laying between socks just behind a turnrow waiting on white birds. Pics from that hunt coming soon. After the hunt we burned up the roads looking for more. I got home way later than planned and @BkShoemaker let me get away with it because “you better be glad it’s your birthday!” I admittedly took advantage of it. We ended the day at our “neighbors” (in laws) with a birthday dinner and a solid display of the alphabet and numbers knowledge. Lol. Thanks Drake. • Each year I have to ask myself how it could get any better. Each time I can’t answer the question but it seems to just answer itself as time goes on. • Thank you to everyone who reached out. Facebook “wall” posts, IG posts, IG stories, texts, AND phone calls. I appreciate everyone’s efforts to make me feel way cooler than I deserve to be. Luckily these things are only for a day because I’d have to buy new hats and cut the necks out of my shirts. You folks know EXACTLY how to make someone smile. • Photo from a public land hunt with @Saltwater_Smart while I was “working” with @DryCreekOutfitters. I’m already ready to go back and hang. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek #Birthday

Don’t Let Your Demeanor Be Your Demise • There’s so much more than persona and first impressions when you get to the point I am in life. One thing in particular has stood out for me this past year. Demeanor. • Each year I meet new people, hunt with more people, and walk away with solid relationships with some of those people. Some take shape right away and others aren’t even tangible until later on down the road. I’ve learned that persona only matters from a distance and first impressions are only good one time. The demeanor of a person has been known to make or break it for me. The way they “hold their nose” or the obvious interests they have when they’re around. • Listening and watching others has made me more aware of my own self and I’m thankful for that. I hope that I’m closer what I’m striving to be and I hope that I’m making leaps and bounds towards a better 30 something. My mom reminded me today that my birthday is tomorrow. Here’s to 33 and a more approachable demeanor. • • Photo: @Sullivan_Tristan #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #Demeanor #Birthday

The inside of the truck on Day 59 of 60. Surprisingly organized compared to some. A lot of credit goes to most of my days being in one of many @DryCreekOutfitters rides but nonetheless we will celebrate the cleanliness of my little @GMC. • A few things to note. Caffeine comes in many forms. Good company the same. Sugary carbs aren’t bad either. Keep them close and you’re always in for a good time. @GlockInc on magnets and a @ProDriveOutboards hooked to your hitch helps a lot too. 😉 • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

For getting you there, back, and everything in between. @ProDriveOutboards has you covered even at breakfast. • I’ve spent the last two years in, out, and around this thing. It hasn’t failed me. Neither has the office that stands behind it. Now that the storm that is waterfowl season is over I can say without a doubt that I’m stoked to be a part of this team. Thankful for them. Looking forward to watch this grow! • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

Pulled a Quick One • This season played a terrible trick on a lot of us. Hopes and promise of an early push with plenty of water to go around. It was the polar opposite of last season. The year before we searched for water. This one had us searching for ground that wasn’t covered by 4 feet of it. To say we didn’t learn would be a lie but to say we could have been okay without that whooping would be an understatement. • I spent the majority of my year with @DryCreekOutfitters in Wichita Falls, TX and experienced a whole new level of hunting. I had less slow mornings than my guys and gals over here in the Southern part of the Mississippi Flyway. Luckily, I was able to spend my last few days of season in the woods with my dudes. Already looking forward to next year. Doesn’t matter the outcome. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations

J’s First Flooded Timber • Her first river run was a good one to start with. A “balmy” 27* headed straight into the less than calm North wind. I made sure she had plenty of clothes on but as her *favorite* uncle I still worried it wasn’t enough. Each time I would ask if she was okay she would nod in acknowledgment and stare directly into the soul of that north wind. Almost as if it was welcomed. • It was a rush to set up. She held my arm as she navigated her first steps in waders and I held my breath as I watched it happen. As soon as we stepped into the woods she asked “Uncle Wade, is this flooded timber?” I let her know that it was and reminded her that it was my most favorite thing to do in the world but now it was even more my favorite thing because she was there with me. What followed was a smile and expression that only J is capable of. She glowed but tried to keep it low key. There was no hiding it. • No shots were fired. The few birds that flew over sky high we’re as exciting as they ever had been. I’ve never experienced the enamor of a hunt that I saw in her eyes that day. Not even when I was a kid. Monday solidified the answers to my questions. I’ve got a sure enough stud of a sidekick and my two boys have a big cousin that’s gonna be hard to catch up with. I’ve got a feeling she won’t let them fall too far behind. • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #Sidekick

I’ve gotta be honest. I’ve been away from the house for longer than I ever have been. The last 42 days have allowed me only 10 to be with @BkShoemaker and our 2.5 year old man child. It’s been hard and tough and everything else you’d expect. • Those other 32 days were more than just time away from home. They were more than just work. More than just photos. They were experiences. They were lessons learned. They were emotions. I’d be lying if I told you that I had one single image that summed up the trip. Unfortunately I do not. Not for me anyway. This one will have to do. • A mud and blood stained @DryCreekOutfitters hoody on the back of @_KileJones during a wet, foggy, and nasty BANGER. I think it’s simple. I think it’s clear. I think it’s obvious. Hunt. Dry. Creek. • Thank you @R.Morgan91 for trusting and allowing me to photograph your clients and your crew. Thank you Dry Creek crew for putting up with for an entire month! Can’t wait for the next one. • • • • #TheyDED #KnowWhereYouStand #RelationshipsOverRations #HuntDryCreek

This video is from @ridgelineairsoft 's signature game, called sausage house. Essentially the Alamo. Problem is, there's only this door to shoot in and out of.

These are Black Caterpillar Hunters (Calosoma sayi) that I pulled from one pool filter this afternoon - three live ones in the other scarpered before I got any decent shot of them. These guys are extreme - and I use that word with all the power it held in the early 2000s. When I have a garden, this is one of my target species for collection and relocation - to my garden. They hide under rocks and debris during the day and run around feeding on caterpillars at night. They are extremely fast and extremely hungry. Although... not in this state. They are neither fast nor hungry, but would still be of good use in my garden. Only, in more of a fertilizer capacity. They can live between 2 to 3 years, which is pretty old for a beetle. They are nicely identified by the beautiful rust-coloured spots that run in lines down their wing cases. Awesome insect. #AwesomeNature #GetOutdoors #Coleoptera #TheyDed

When I was a lad there were these two boys, brothers down the street: "Kevin Bologna and Colby Cheese." Once, their kitchen exploded and caught on fire, and I heard it was because Kevin wanted to make lava so he had put a Lava Rock in the microwave.
