Give a kid a duck and he will be happy for an hour, teach him to hunt and he will be hooked for life!

Well, I was out on a youth hunt with my brand new gun. We were sitting in a stand up blind, and the day was really slow. The only thing I shot at was a drake cinoman teal. The bird manged to dive down and we never found it. :mad: I wanted to mount my first duck. :sad: I was 8 I think.

The first duck that I got that we retrieved was a hen gadwall, the next season.

I also got quite a few dove when I was 8. My first was a criple that jumped up in front of me while I was walking the feild. I didn't know want to do, so I tryed shooting it on the ground. 5 shots later, the bird was finanlly dead. We couldn't eat it cause it was so damaged. :smile: :sad:
If it flys, it dies
