HAHAHA What an adventure

Postby johnboy07 » Mon Dec 24, 2007 9:48 pm

Well today I tried my hand at divers. What an experience that was. We went into the back waters of Avalon. I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn if I wanted to. I was either leading to much or shooting behind. Man do them ducks fly fast. Atleast my cousin got lucky and shot a buffy and a merganser, but all in all it was a fun day out on the water. Guess I will be doing a little target practice during the off season or back to slow mallards I will go. :rofl:

Nothing compares to hunting divers, but sometimes even when you hit them, they keep going, Stevez and i were out a few weeks ago, dropped a drake buff, skipped across the water like a stone, shook twice, and got up and flew away, and i'm using a 10g, Going to give it another try tomorrow.
Just once i would like to hear you scream in pain !....wanna hear me scream in pain? Play some rap music!
