We met for the first time this morning. He's as pleasant as he seems on here and we had a great time. The morning flight was real quick this morning and didn't last very long. I was hoping to show Matt a stellar morning but it wasn't to be, although we did have our chances (insert Matt's comments here). We each took a drake woody over the spread, and then I showed Matt how I jump shoot this spot. The jump shoot was packed with action but (insert MAtt's comments here)...............
Oh and Matt, that drake mallard you missed was taken by Capt Dave's party and it had a band, OUCH!
Ouch, indeed! What a great day, though. Thanks again for letting me fill a spot in the canoe, as that was one helluva morning.
Great company, great shooting (well, at least a lot of shots fired…). Jump shooting was a new one on me, and I just wasn't prepared for a couple dozen ducks getting off the water like a covey of BIG quail! Total. Flock. Shooting.
That first rise sneaking around the corner in a canoe was just awesome. Unfortunately, the second one was just as awesome, but I still had "duck fever!" I can still see all those ducks in my minds eye (and how safe they were from me yesterday). Cringe-worthy.
And I'm glad Dave at least got one shot off - sounded pretty quiet over there otherwise.
But they sure made that shot count!
Thanks again - absolutely stellar morning!
