PROUD DAD

Postby LEOJR73 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 8:39 pm

Well after all the build up, the youth hunt has come and gone and my son is now an official duck hunter. On Saturday the skies were full of ducks, he shot two widgeon and two mallards. He could have shot more, but we had a heck of a time telling the drakes from the hens, so we didn't shoot. Sunday we went back out in the evening, and there was nothing flying. Finally after about 2 hours a pair of widgeon dropped in and my son and his Benelli 20 gauge made quick work of one of the ducks, he couldn't see over the blind to try for a double, and as an added bonus, my little chessador that hasn't hunted in 3 seasons made a perfect retrieve. Very happy with the weekend and so proud of my son. Cant wait for the 12th so that finally my dad my brother my two boys and myself can finally all hunt together. Hope you all have a great season

Really the only pics I have. I have tons of great video and pictures that are stuck on my phone, that got wet and hasn't worked since that days. I am hoping it dries out enough to retrieve them
