Roper did all the legwork on a duck hunt in the Skagit/Mt Vernon area. He managed to convince Scott Salzer, Islander, and myself to join him. We had a guided trip from Banded Hunts and we had an excellent day of shooting (and missing) a bunch of ducks. By noon we had a mixed bag of pintails, widgeon, and mallards, totaling 25 birds. (better shooting would have easily given us our 28 bird limit!) Our after hunt celebration was at Empire Brewing in Mt Vernon where Andrew (another WFF regular) joined us to deliver some 16 gauge shells to Roper. Good brews and good food ended a great trip! Thanks Roper for putting this together! It was lots of fun and some very good stories!
