It was December of 2007 and I had just purchased an Ambusher Layout Boat. I was setup in a creek off of a coastal river hoping to shoot my limit of 2 (at the time) blackheads before having to go to work. About 10 minutes after legal shooting time a group of about 200 blackheads flew into the creek and lit right on top of me. They were so close I could have caught them in my hat if I tried. Had I sat up I would have got hit in the back of the head. They splashed water on me as they landed. I just froze, in aww and never pulled the trigger. After they got up and flew off a couple birds broke off and came back and I doubled up to get my limit. At that moment, I was completely hooked on hunting from a layout boat and duck hunting hasn't been the same ever since.
