It was a "buddy hunt".
In my more carefree days, I guided for Mallardmasters. Have been friends with the owner for about 20 years.
We shot 55 in 3 mornings with 30 mallards (one of them banded), but tthe hunting was slow by this spots standards. The current drought in his county is the worst they've seen in 75 years. Having to pump the fields with well water and the bordering refuge and Cache river have little more than puddles in them.
Still, good friends and more than enough action to keep things interesting for this old guy.
