What an incredible morning to be paddling the canoe. That moon at 5am was just an amazing way to see everything around you. Today my son joined me for the fun. He's 11 and not shooting just yet but loves hunting, and all he talked about all week was going today. He's quite the confident canoeist and we got to the spot with a half hour to spare. We set out a fairly small spread of dekes and waited.
This mornings flight was quick as expected and not a ton of birds but more than I thought we'd see. A nice mix of woodies, greenwings, a pair of bluewings and a few black ducks. I think it was Joser that said something about missing the easy shot's and killing the tough ones, today was that for me. I completely blanked two shot's on a black duck hovering seemingly motionless over the decoys, and a nice drake woody gave me the same offer. What I did end up connecting on was a nice double on teal as they were setting into the dekes at MACH 10, go figure. Pleased that the drake greenwings are nicely feathered out.
The best part of today was having my son with me, what a way to spend time together. Have a great weekend everyone. Go Sox and Pats.
My doctor said drinking heavily can lead to a slow death. I said good, I'm not in any hurry.
