With only two weekends left in the 2012-2013 duck season, I'm hoping to finish it out on a "high note"...as I'm sure everyone here is too.
Hopefully everyone has had a successful season thus far, I know mine has been very enjoyable and very memorable. My good hunting buddy and I have been able to use 2 GoPro's for much of the season and have been getting great shots on camera. I'm really looking forward to reviewing and editing some of those videos to make a nice "recap" of the season. We've been fortunate to take 2 banded birds this season, both fairly unique and great stories to tell in the future.
Perhaps what I'm looking forward to most is being able to take my "first ever" shotgun hunt again. I bought my first firearm when I was about 10 years old, used it for many years afterwards until upgrading to semi-autos. However last weekend I had a "mishap" with my Benelli M2 Field [http://www.duckhuntingchat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=219410
]. As a result, the M2 is decommissioned for the remainder of the season and will likely be sent back to Benelli for warranty on the barrel. It is quite a bummer about the M2, however I am looking forward to spending regular time in the duck blind with my "trusty" Rem. 870....it's been awhile and it will bring back great memories. Hopefully I'll remember to "pump" the action
With big plans in the works for the closing weekend, I hope everyone the very best hunting. Be safe and shoot straight!
