Good way to close out the season

Postby DuckHuner88 » Sun Jan 26, 2014 11:37 pm

With it being my Dad's birthday, it was a no-brainer to hunt the last day (wasn't really a question in the first place, just had to set the stage for you guys). With 3 ducks down, four mallards came head on and veered to the right so it wasn't a safe shot for me. Dad dropped a hen and I said I'd go get it. Walk out and pick it up, banded! His first band after 30 years of duck hunting and on his birthday!

We ended up shooting 4 more ducks to close a fun and exciting season!

Always a cool pic with a banded bird on top! Bet you guys won't forget that day for awhile.
