It's about the hunt not the kill.....

Postby GStan » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:41 am

I took my 7 year old "baby girl" and her eight year old brother out today. We had a blast. I have wanted to duck hunt all my life but never went until today. The past month my wife has decided she is gonna have to learn to duck/goose hunt if she plans on spending any time with me. I had plenty of missed oppertunites to shoot ducks today. My excuses were {Oh its too High. Well those came by a little fast. I didnt want to shoot towards the truck. there are other hunters over there. not sure if I can shoot him now that he landed in the edge of my decoys. You get it. I made three quick bad shots when I should have had six ducks.

Please dont be upset with that guy out there squeeling on the call like a kazoo.... that is probly me trying to show my younguns how good daddy is with a call......haha
I just want to let everyone here know that I found my spot that I hunted by doing lots of homework. But this site has helped me in more ways than I can explain. I hope that someday I can pass along the knowledge that you guys are doing now. Keep it up Gents.

That's awesome man. It's all about the kids. I'm already looking forward to getting my kids out there( I have a while to wait as my oldest is two). Glad your able to get ducks in the deeks to show the kids a good time. Hey no worries about a bad caller, I'm quickly learning calling is not everything, you have to be where the ducks want to be. May have to reassess the fast ducks though, don't have any advice on how to slow them down to your liking :lol3: make it fun for you and the kids. After all that's what hunting is about

Good to go there brother, teal are sporty birds. I got a goose and a big fox squirrel today, but not for the lack of trying for more geese. I am from @ Oak Hill, where bouts you from?

We live in Grafton. Recently moved here. I understand about not for a lack of trying; We just haven't seen many birds, but appreciate the ones we have seen. Guess thats why we call it hunting. The little ones seem to have a blast either way.

Sadly, I get to go back to work tomorrow. I will be back out hunting middle of Jan. Hopefully by then the birds will be flying... I would enjoy setting up a hunt.
I might be at work but my mind is in the woods.
