Went out this morning and had a grand old time. Lots of new birds came in on the north wind last night. Mostly mallards, with a few wigeon. Had flocks of 3 and 4 dozen birds coming into the spread! Haven't seen that up here in years. Was done with mallards by 7:40 and got a wigeon at 8:00. I actually could have dropped a second wigeon, but I figured it was early, so I'd wait for another flight. The rest of the morning (until 9:30) all that came in were mallards.
Every once in a while, even a blind hog finds an acorn.
I feel slightly sorry for a man who has never patterned his gun, who has no idea how far his chosen load will retain killing penetration. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister
