So if my math is right, if you average all our ages together, even us 9 older guys, I come up with an average age of 30 years old...Take away us 9 older guys and I come up with an avearge age of 24...When I look at this, I see why there are so many arguments and ego's on edge around here..I have 3 boys and they are 23,18,17.....I have the same arguments with them sometimes, as I see going on here with alot of you young men..Most of us that started hunting years ago, had a lot steeper learning curve than alot of you younger men today...We just worked with what we had and made the best of it...
There were no cell phones, and no pc's..If you wanted to talk to someone you had to pick up the phone and dial it(I don't mean push a button either)...If no one answered then you couldn't leave a voicemail or even a message because there were no answering machines...So then you had to get in you truck and drive to there house to talk...
I'm not going to get into every little detail about how it was tougher doing this, of we didn't have that,...You guys nowadays are extremely lucky to have the modern convieniences of todays world...I wished we would have had a few of them..lol..
I think it's great that there are this many of the younger generation coming into waterfowl hunting..Just like all the ones that have lived and died before me, remember us all after we are gone, and pass on whatever knoweledge and traditions you aquire and make, to the younger generation coming up behind you...Because when it's all said and done...when that group of ducks is locked up and coming in, and you get the jump on them and line up as you pull the trigger..... the reaction has always been the same...Nomatter how old,what generation your from, or where your hunting....when that burnt powder smell of spent shells is filling the air, and ducks are belly up...no matter what age you are......We all feel like a kid again...................
I'm an old fart , but young at heart...Been there,done that, wrote the freakin book...When i die I hope it's at sunrise, with a gun in my hand, and the sound of wings overhead...

Hulls were paper. gas was $.20 a gallon. boats were wood, wool was hi-tech, waders were levis and boots were black rubber. But, never had to walk 5 miles thru the snow..barefoot..to get to a one room schoolhouse.
