Weather is predicted to reach us by the end of the week and with that in mind we decided to hit the river in attempt to jump a few waterfowl. We had only little more than two hours to work with and while we attempted some old and new areas none could be found. While heading back to the SUV we did flush a few quail and with No.5 Bismuth I took a few shots at them. I managed to nail one but even after a gallant attempt to retrieve it we ran out of light before surrendering him to the wild. The setting sun forced us to town for a French meal where we met a nice couple from Turlock who managed a nice 3x3 Buck earlier today. Tomorrow we try again.
