If you all get a chance one day to take a young hunter out, do it. I had the pleasure yesterday guiding a youngster. Although the young man did not connect, he got a good amount of shooting in, mostly Wood ducks. It was fun to get out before the start of the regular season, but I have to admit I did not sleep well, the excitement was just as much as if I was going on opening day.
A big thank you to Mike J. for having the confidence in me, and the ability to convey to the boys family that it was ok to drop him off to me without meeting me first. We both had a great time. Not only did we shoot over a decoys spread, but also did some jump shooting from the canoe, which was exciting.
