Only four today but they worked in beautiful , I sat one of two pairs down first , then lost the second pair in the trees , gone ,
My buddy was coming unhitched as the two swam around in the decoys for what seemed to be
forever.
Then I caught the lost pair on the corner and hit them with a lonesome hen and they sat down with the others.
We came up and shot all four.
The drake in the second pair was packing bling , I ask my buddy was he worth the wait ?
He looked at me and just smiled.
Only four but a great time.

Looks great! Can you teach me your ways?! :)
My son and I started in 2012 and learned a lot, but have not had such good success as yous.
We are up in Washington but only shoot swamps and marshes as we dont have a boat or dog yet.
But we enjoy our time together.
Congrats on your season so far!

Have you checked out the Washington State forum in the DHC forum index? It might help in your search for knowledge. :thumbsup:
