My opening day

Postby jerseywaterfowler » Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:29 pm

Went with my two boys down to Southern Ocean County for the second annual LBI boys hunting feast. Meet my brother in-law Friday afternoon and we hunting in a local WMA. Did not see anything that evening. Came back Saturday morning two hours before shooting time only to find a Ford 150 in the spot I wanted. We moved on to a secondary spot. A little more patience on my brother in-law part and we may have had a couple. Shot to early. A group of 8 came by and I turned them around only to watch them then make a hard left to another area. The boys wanted to hit the marsh so at lunch we set up in GBWMA. With all the wind pushing the water I have never seen it that flooded. We spent a few hours trying to call in some blacks put again failed. Fun to be out with my kids but do wish we had bagged something.

It's nice to bag something when you're with the kids but, it really won't matter to them in the long run. I can still remember fishing with my dad 35 years ago but couldn't tell you if we even caught a fish.

Savor these moments.
