First duck hunt

Postby DuckinFool » Mon Dec 09, 2013 11:27 pm

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we took my 2 oldest grandsons on their first duck hunt. Both took their first plunge into the icy swamp water about 5 seconds apart. The 10 year old took his second fall about an hour later and really filled the waders. Awesome day for them and Paw Paw. They are hooked. :yes:

Great pics. Getting them started right. Something about kids and waders. They seem to fascinated that you can walk in the water w/ them and not get wet. My grandson was the same way. Started him going when he was 6. Now 13 and a die hard duck hunter. Wants to get his deer shot asap so he can get to the duckblind ! Took his first spill on ice this year also. Got a little damp but not soaked. Learned some lessons about ice I'm sure he will remember.

They will be back down on Christmas Day and I am hoping the weather turns a bit more mild next week and knocks some ice off. We are hoping to get to hunt 3 days while they are here. They have permits for the Youth Goose Hunt at Union Co on the 28th. The waders have been dried and ready for another dunkin or two. :yes: lol
