"Magellan at Beaver Run - day 1"

DATE: 1/1/2011
LOCATION: Beaver Run near Marks, MS
WEATHER: Cloudy, NW winds at 10-15 mph, 45 degrees
KILLS: 8 Green Wing Teal, 2 Gadwall, 8 Mallards
FRIENDS: Jim and Jimmy Cobbs, Chris Robertson

The year has been average at best up to this point.  It rained 1.5 inches last night, with thunder storms everywhere, and then Magellan showed up.  We started the morning off with a "Scotch double" on greenheads.  The day was starting to shape up into something special.  I have not had ducks like this work all year, and it finally happened.  Ducks were coming from everywhere.  Didn't take a lot of shooting because the ducks were thick and in our faces. 

All that's left now is to cook them.

Saute 1 chopped onion and 3 chopped bell peppers. 
Add thinking sliced duck meat and cook together.
Add mozerella cheese and melt
Coat hoagie roll with mayo and horseradish for a duck cheese steak.
Magellan heads off to Tallahatchie county to hunt with Wayne Black, and then back to me for another hunt at Beaver Run...can't wait.
