I have three young kids and my wife is in the car business, so I have them all day Saturday. A sitter will cost me about 100 bucks per day so they go with me on the evening/afternoon hunts. Yes, I get several birds during the middle of the day. It is a good mix and not just bluebills or ringnecks. I get pintail, widgeon, black duck/malard and gadwall during the day.
I feel your pain missing the morning shooting.
Big Iron's new best friend. If anyone wants an 8x10 autographed glossy picture of us together, just let us know.
I'm thinking about starting another chapter of Northern VA Delta Waterfail with my best friends up here.
