I will let Woody tell you all what he sent along with the deek. It's actually pretty neat so, well done Woodrow :clapping:



My addition to Ginger's collection of "party favors" was a "piece of Michigan" and her glorious shore lines.

An unpolished Petoskey Stone (the state stone of Michigan) along with a short article detailing the history/geology of Petoskey Stones. As far as I know Petoskey Stones are unique to Michigan, i could be wrong though.

For those who don't know what a Petoskey Stone is...
A Petoskey stone is a rock and a fossil, often pebble-shaped, that is composed of a fossilized coral, Hexagonaria percarinata.[1] The stones were formed as a result of glaciation, in which sheets of ice plucked stones from the bedrock, grinding off their rough edges and depositing them in the northwestern (and some in the northeastern) portion of Michigan's lower peninsula. In those same areas of Michigan, complete fossilized coral colony heads can be found in the source rocks for the Petoskey stones.

Petoskey stones are found in the Gravel Point Formation of the Traverse Group. They are fragments of a coral reef that was originally deposited during the Devonian period. [1] When dry, the stone resembles ordinary limestone but when wet or polished using lapidary techniques, the distinctive mottled pattern of the six-sided coral fossils emerges. It is sometimes made into decorative objects. Other forms of fossilized coral are also found in the same location.

Woody, I thought that was pretty cool :thumbsup:

Looks like Ginga is on her way here. She'll be enjoying the company of four DHC members and some other guests. In addition to all that awesomeness she'll be celebrating our 60th birthday on Saturday. Cake and hats for all.

Legendary Papachessie? I'm assuming legendary is another word for old. By the way, Blackcloud left out a key part of the story. While the "tornady" weather was upon us that we managed to beat to the boat launch by a whopping 30 seconds, he couldn't find the keys to the truck. So after 3 trips back to the boat that his dad and I (the old guys) kept from blowing to Indiana, he finally figured out which pocket they were in. No biggy, a little lightning and hail never hurt anyone. :fingerhead:
And as for BC's crack marksman skills, I must say, a duck crippled by getting his arse shot off doesn't run or swim very far once it hits the water or weeds. :bow: I think at one point it was about 5 in a row downed this way. I guess you must've been tired when you wrote this. Your dad and TWO younger brothers joined us. I must say, anyone would be envious of what a great family you have.
I really was honored to hunt with you guys. You have a hell of a tradition going on. I'd say it rivals anything that goes on south of the Mason Dixon line. You're hunting where the duck hunting tradition truly began. Before it became a southern sport by draining all of our northern wetlands and turning them into crop fields.
I hope you guys can get over this way for an "easy" duck hunt. I watched 2 or 3 :yes: ducks working the cornfield last night. Gonna be ugly this weekend as long as the weather cooperates.

Hey Byers, Don't burn the Petosky stone! :moon:

Not blaming you. It just happened there. Didn't say you were new at it down there either, just that it used to be just as good up here. Ever seen Everglades of the North? Good show.
