Today was a really nice day for me and the boy at the decoy show. It's funny how we spend most of the season trying to NOT be seen and then all shack up at a show like this and have a good time. Lots of nice birds and good conversation.
Special thanks to Poppa Bear for the DU Pin that made my son's day (even though he was really shy when you gave it to him)......
Thanks Pop.... :beer:

Was that Papabear? I've never met most of ou guys in person, but I was there with my grandson and if that was Papabear, he did the same for him! In fact, I bought three hats from him, one for me, one for my grandson and a pink one for my granddaughter (she loved it!) Tyler wore his all day!

Come to think of it, he was pretty good to Tyler last year, too. He gave him one of those DU posters with all the different species of waterfowl. I framed it for him and he has it hanging in his room. When we were walking through the show today, he was rattling quite a few different species of ducks. When I asked him how he knew, he remineded me that he has the poster hanging in his room!

Great job Papabear. You are a great ambassador of our sport, especially with the young'uns.

It can be amazing how something like a pin, a call or a poster, means so much for a kid. Kids carry memories and also almost always have a box somewhere hidden that is their own, where they stash special things they picked up along the way. Sounds like the decoy show was a real good time. :thumbsup:

Funny you say that. I loved having boxes when I was a kid. I had a bunch of them with all sorts of things in them..
It was a good time.

I see your spear head and raise you a whistle.....
How about this!
It's a Terracotta policeman's whistle that I found in the dirt in my backyard as a kid.

I have no idea. It's in great shape and works..my house at the time was very old and it was common to find broken dishes etc in the yard.
I'd guess it's from the '20's maybe??
