Just trying to help...

Postby razorback » Fri Jan 10, 2014 3:52 pm

So I get a call from a friend, really more of an acquaintance that I have met a couple other times.

He asks "you hunt ducks don't you?"
I do why? ( I'm expecting him to want to tag along)
My mom has some property that she wants someone to come shoot the ducks. Would you mind looking at it for her?
OK, I'll take a look and see what is going on

I head over the very taxing 15 minutes from my front door, meet a very nice older lady who wants to feed me lunch. I eventually give in and go sit down and chat with her for almost two hours. She is telling me that her dog barks at the birds and she wants them gone. She tells me where they are and I head outside to take a look. As I clear a wall of cedar trees between her home and the fence line I about fell down. I saw hundreds of birds working into a particular spot in a crop field. Went back to truck and grabbed my binos and got a better look and all I see is a carpet of green bobbing through the stalks. Spent another hour or so watching birds come and go from afar. I would guess there are approximately 2K birds working that field.

I went back and told her I would be happy to help her out. I thought she was going to hug me.

It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Now that you mention it, I think there was a plan to have a group hunt this year.

I have 7 decoys and can get 3 consecutive quacks out of my duck call so I think that automatically reserves me a spot.

Not all of us need that many quacks to pull them in. And layouts - just hide and be still, just like people did before them.

If you want to get on Razorback's good side, let him know you only shoot drakes and believe in conserving hens

I thought we were just talking about quacks, not calling them in general.
If that's the case, then I'll just bring my whistle, seems to work better this late anyway.

Although..... I do have some of the giant goose shells to lay under.

I work for the County Obama Mental Health Services and I have to inform you that lady has been declared Mentally Incapacitated ... so ... IF YOU ACT ON HER BEHALF you would be in violation of HHSC BILL 2013 OBAMACARE ... subsection 2345 ... and upon conviction all your property, children , dogs , parakeets or other pet birds and cats ... would be subject of CONFISCATION and a jail term of not less than six months and not more than 5 years could be handed down by the BOARD!

Being Chairman of The Board I will TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM MYSELF ... so CEASE and DESIST ... STAND DOWN!

Being the law abiding citizen I am. I will turn myself in. Come out to the property and pick me up. As far as the hunt, it did not disappoint.

Wow, how often does that happen, right? I've heard of similar situations with Giant Canada Goose, but never Mallards.

Now your thinking!

I knew it was too good to last, as everything thawed the birds started spreading out. We had a couple really nice hunts, but haven't been back since Sunday. Checked it a couple times and the birds aren't using it nearly as heavy as they were.
