As some of you know, my oldest daughter Littleducker has over 6 years experience trudging along with me through muddy fields and frozen river banks, setting decoys, and grassing blinds. On Saturday she took her first duck and goose!
Absolutely arrogant "coyote hunters" threatening us, and another party of goose hunters setting up on the same property, increased the difficulty level, but we made the day into something truly special. We were also joined by a close friend and his 6yo daughter which was a lot of fun and went out for a big celebratory breakfast afterwards. It was fun to see other kids at the restaurant interested in the decoys and birds in the parking lot and their parents willingly bringing them over for a closer peek.

According to Littleducker, the gloves are off now and I could not be more proud.
