I would like to start a topic about every ones first duck/goose they shot. I am sure there are many great stories around here!
Here is mine....
I have been waterfowl hunting for just over a week now and I finally shot my first duck!!
It was about thirty minutes before evening shooting ended and boy was I discouraged... I sat in that cold blind for three hours only to have seen a few mile high geese and a couple "over the fence(Private land)" mallards. I had three deeks out and a duck butt that was on a jerk rig mixing up the mud.
Sitting patiently, I feel my cell phone start to buzz in my waders. I turn away from my little spread and start frantically digging for this stupid phone. missed the call. Returning the phone to my waders, I look up.... a BIG ol' fat drake mallard landed in my decoys and was swimming around..
I jump up with gun in hand and the mallard jumps as well.. BLAM!!!
There he was. My first duck.
Ok fellas! Lets hear the stories!
