Great, had to wait until yesterday due to an unexpected mechanical problem with my boat. A plate in the battery broke loose and it went from starting fine to deader than a doornail in about 30 minutes. Of course this did not happen in my driveway when I started the boat on Saturday morning, but, instead waited until I was ready to launch the boat at the ramp a half hour later.
So, I headed out yesterday morning with a new battery and the layout boat. I hunted at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. I rigged for bluebill and canavasback running two lines of bluebill decoys and one of cans for 75 decoys total. It was dead calm, but the birds flew pretty good anyway. I took my daily allowance of three bluebill drakes, two canvasback drakes and two redhead drakes.
I should have the decoy in the mail this afternoon. I am adding a DVD about the Bear River Refuge to the package. It has some great footage of waterfowl and other wildlife and tells a interesting story of the founding of the refuge. Watch it if you like and pass it along.
