All of my run ins with him were from my younger days. Learned how to ramp block and road block while driving slow, flashlight tricks and blinding others with flashlights water reflection to guys behind you in the canal, dropping off decoys to keep others from coming closer and more tricks.
The best thing I remember was watching him get done shooting out in Unit 4A. He went to the dike/canal and marked the water edge with white flagging on a stick to set his turn off for the next morning in the dark. So after hunting we went and pulled his marker up and put it about 200 yards further down the canal that put him into solid nut grass. With zero moon it would be impossible to see much to his left side.
Then we remarked his old turn with a willow branch that we could use and see. Next morning he was just ahead of us in the canal and we were right on his butt in an empty boat with just me 3 decoys and another guy and our other friend behind us with the rest of the stuff in another boat.
Ol Schell goes flying down the canal, past our willow mark and to his flag. We turn off at the willow, drop me off not too far from the canal in a tule patch with 3 decoys and 2 flashlights and the other guy takes the boat back to where Schell was hunting the day before. About this time I can hear him cussing about not being in the right spot.
Then our other boat shows up with the remaining gear and makes a show of using lights and setting out decoys not too far from me. By the time he came back it looked like 3 seperate set ups where he was the day before. Man was he pissed!
Those were the days. I was a jr in high school that year.
We used to mess with Marcillac too back then. Him and Schell would team up in 4A but we were quick learners and could pull the same tricks. Moved a shotgun shell box marker on him too next to the canal also but that time up the canal towards the ramp about a couple hundred yards.
Not anymore. My racing anybody days are long ,long past. For the younger crowd.
