To all of our great clients,
A sincere thank you from Petey and me for a great year. We are so blessed to have your support and friendship. We assure you we will never take either for granted. We will continue to strive to provide you with a premier hunting experience.
All of the decoy spreads are picked up and in storage. All of the blinds are in their summer resting spots. We are retrieving the boats this afternoon. We will visit our landowners tomorrow and thank them for the use of their ponds and land. Petey will then head back to Aspen and I am headed back to Torrington and then to Florida for a week long nap.
We harvested a total of 842 birds for the season. That is a 6.47 birds per hunter day for the season. Our biggest day was March 12th when we bagged 114 birds. The 2nd largest day was March 13th with 77 birds. Our biggest per hunter days were March 1st and 2nd. Our hunters bagged an average of 13 birds per hunter over those two days. Central Flyway's Best harvested 42.5 birds per day for the 20 days of hunting.
We encourage you to secure your reservations for next year's hunt as soon as possible. Many of you have already done so and we thank you for that.
My administrative staff will be keeping you updated on the 2011 fly fishing season on the Grey Reef this summer. Contact me or The North Platte Lodge in Alcova, WY, to fish with me. Don't forget I do Cast and Blast trips for trophy trout and the magnificent Sage Grouse in September through the Lodge as well.
I look forward to seeing many of you in Torrington for mallards and Canadas next fall and winter.
If any of you would like to leave a comment on your hunt we would greatly appreciate your feedback.
God Bless all of you.
JJ and Petey
