A super day of ducks and geese.
George with probably the best looking drake Broadbill of the season.
At the beach house on West Fire Island and the new wood stove Pete Johnston installed. This baby kept us warm as toast.
Captain Al at sunset waiting for a black duck to show but no takers. Lots of ice and tough conditions.
The guys at West Island. Pete and PJ Johnston and Jim Conte and PJ's dog Scout. A great crew.
Tons of ice and rough conditions coming home across the bay. Pete was driving and had to bear the elements to get us home safely. We dodged lots of ice and had to break through miles of thick ice to make it back home. Pete kept his head up and got a lot of ice because of it but he never gave up, thank God.
It took us about an hour to break up this thick pack ice by the house but we made it to safety and a warm home (after about two hours). Thanks Leslie.
George and Jeff had an awesome Eider hunt near Shinnecock inlet.
