All is said and done and well... the weather was just too damn nice. They kept calling for storms but it never happened.
In total we got 6 ducks and a goose. I got 1 giant hen mallard and the goose, first goose ever (they've never been in season when I see them). The first day we got skunked!
2nd day was complete fog, with probably 75 yards visibility, but 75 feet visibility for something as small as a duck. They would litterely just "pop out" of the cloud in front of us and it was a matter of seconds before they popped in.
Gun jams, sunken mojo, boat leak the works.
But I did see some amazing things, like 5000+ geese take flight in the distance and thousands of what my cousin said were canvasbacks (no idea, they were about a mile away) swarm like a tornado across the bay.
Got to see my first Old Squaw, first Bufflehead (much respect for those who shoot them, they're both tiny and fast as all hell).
It will become a yearly trip, and hopefully next year we will hunt the Potomac.
I leave you with a pretty amazing photo that I took with a simple 5MP Canon point and shoot.
Sorry it's so big (when you click) I set it as my wallpaper within minutes of being back in NY.
