Bunker came down for a short visit yesterday and we talked decoys and wind etc, had a couple beers, and cooked up a nice little meal of bacon wrapped Teal breasts, skewered and sprinkled with black pepper, cooked til the bacon is crispy and the Teal are pink in the middle...
Thanks for the deer steaks, too, man...congrats
When I paddled out this morning, I had intended on hunting another area, but the wind was blowing pretty hard and not in my favor. So I put Plan B into effect. I set up in another spot that was better suited for the wind. Birds started flying 10 minutes before legal shoot. Right at legal I killed 2 Ringers. I sat down to light a victory smoke and 2 seconds later whoosh comes some more decoying in, took 1 shot at the lead bird and splash go 2 more. My first twofer and a close call! 3 shots and my limit of Ringers! I thought I might have a chance at my first ever 6 duck limit but I did not have any more shots. The big ducks put down in an off limits cove. Only heard a few other far off shots. More than happy to get a limit of Ringers this morning, though, and nice to see new birds moving in.
