It was fun. I wasn't expecting to see much so I didn't bring many shells. Was sitting at 4 teal with 2 shells left. A pair decoyed perfect and I finished the limit with my last 2 shells. Sometimes when things go so perfectly it almost makes you wonder about devine intervention.

I envy you and your experience with your daughter. My son is now 10 and has never shown the passion for being outdoors that your daughter is showing. I've taken him hunting and fishing and he just never seems to really enjoy himself.. He doesn't hate it but its a kind of take it or leave it thing with him. Several times he has made comments like, "I dont think im going to duck hunt when I get older" I'm just trying to play it cool and make sure he doesn't feel pressured to love waterfowl like I do. But it would be a crusher if he grew up and didn't want to waterfowl hunt.

Don't feel too badly, Ecat. My two sons grew up not particularly caring for hunting. (maybe it skips generations: my dad was not a hunter, either...) They are fantastic young men now, with other "manly" interests, and I am very proud of both of them.

Forgot to tell ya'll's; one of the six BW's I got on Wednesday had a band. Banded in 2011 in Alberta. Thought that was cool.

Not many banded teal flying around. I got lucky.

If he doesnt duck hunt it wont be the end of the world. I have always just assumed he and i would be hunting partners like my father and I are. I'll adjust but it would be a disappointment.

You guys will find something to do together whether it is hunting, golf, working on cars, traveling, bowling, whatever.

I was fortunate to grow up enjoying the same thing my dad enjoys. Especially hunting and LSU football. The older I get, the more I realize how much that time means to him as there is less of it to go around. Just don't force him to choose something and you guys will find something naturally. :beer:
