Then a pretty decent hike with the last 75 yards or so requiring us to sludge through ankle/calf high gumbo mud. Finally we get set up and then the guide (me) makes a great revelatory statement: Huy guys, sorry but we need to pick up and move another 40 yards to the right. Luckily we still had 30 minutes before legal.
If you have been duck hunting long you undoubtedly have encountered this scenario: Clear Skies, half moon & zero wind.
What do you think happens? (You can only choose 1 of the answers below.)
A) The ducks drop into the decoys before legal.
B) The ducks drop into the decoys before legal.
C) The ducks drop into the decoys before legal.
D) All of the above.
Yep, 100+ birds dropped in 15 minutes before legal shooting. Wigeon, Teal, Gadwall and Mallards oh my.
It was beautiful though as we could clearly see the many silhouette's dropping in by the dozens and all being very vocal having a good ol' time.
Those 15 minutes lasted at least 20-30 minutes. Uncanny how time will crawl when you and your dogs are watching all the activity directly in front of you. Was spectacular though. Especially after the first shots finally rang out. What a site!
This young lady was on her first duck hunt. Think I spoiled her.
