Lucky day In the marsh: Lucky Day in the March My buddy Rob and I were planning on meeting up to go out duck hunting. I was not feeling good and had to take the kids to school. As I dropped off the kids at school I called Rob and asked him how it was going and he said get out here now they are everywhere and I have five down! So I got my gear and headed out. We had three ducks come right in to the decoys and I got my first duck of the day. Shortly after that we had five geese fly by us out in the middle of the pond. So we decided we better put out some goose floaters. We had some more ducks give us a nice look but no go. As we sat there talking about how the season had been going and what we hope we get out of it we hear the honk. I got up and stood up on the back bench to see if I could see them and Rob told me to start calling. I said no reason to call they are right here! We got ready and shot at the same time. I took the front bird and he took the back bird. We took them down with one shot. Rob’s dog Hagen went out and got Rob’s bird and Rob looked at me and said I bet they are both banded. I looked at him and said “NO WAY, not with my luck”. Hagen brought Rob’s bird back and sure as heck it was banded. Hagen went out to get my bird but was having a hard time, so I headed out to help. As I got there I looked down and saw a shiny thing on the leg; I reached down to grab the leg to flip him over and then I saw another shiny thing on the other leg. I pulled the goose up and saw a $50 reward band. I was in shocked. I walked back to the boat and I said “yes it banded” with a big smile on my face “it’s double banded!!” I handed Rob the bird and his jaw dropped. We both did not know they did reward bands on geese. We called the bands in and my goose was banded In June 2005 and Rob goose was banded in June 1996, 20 years old! We ended the day with two geese and 8 ducks. It was an awesome day in the marsh with a good friend, the birds was just a bonus!. Photo submitted by Dustin Gleed on Jan 12, 2017 04:40 PM

Georgia Pig Hunt: I got sent out to Robins AFB for work for 2 weeks so I made it a point to get out and do some pig hunting while I was there. I spent the weekend out chasing pigs and I was lucky enough to get a couple and had a great time. The guys I went out with loved having a Utah boy out hunting with them. Most of them had never met anyone from Utah and they were amazed we don't have whitetail deer in Utah. The picture of all the whitetail mounts is the register at feed store where I purchased my hunting license. Wonderful way to spend a weekend away from home for work. Had to bring my Lucky Kings Camo Hat along too. . Photo submitted by Kyle Andersen on Jan 11, 2017 03:28 PM

Manti Temple & Deer: I took this photo heading home to Ephraim the other night. Seems like a great spot to hang out if you're a deer. . Photo submitted by Kendon Sorenson on Jan 09, 2017 04:51 PM
