Ultimately, there really is no "off season". There are only two aspects to life. 1) duck season 2) preparing for duck season. Just this week, I ordered two cases of shotgun shells (they are on sale guys), a game cart and a couple marsh seats. For my large duck boat, I'm going to build a new blind, sell my old blind, install carpet, install a galley, repair lights on both boat and trailer. Recently I acquired a Grumman Sportboat and trailer. For the Grumman I'm going to install a blind and acquire a small motor, and completely rebuild the trailer. We also have a son getting married in July which is a real pain in the ass, because the wedding is across the country which will eat up two weeks right in the middle of "getting ready for duck season". I also don't eat ducks during the season. I freeze them all and in the off season have several banquet type meals for the guys I hunted with. I've got about 8 dozen birds in the freezer so it will be a full banquet season. Also have about 10 lbs of spoonies for sausage. On Monday of this past week, I met with several of the guys I hunt with.We set a tentative schedule for next season, White Mountains in early Oct, etc. Of course, I will continue to dog train several times per week. Almost forgot, I've still got about 20 Teal in my duck frig that I've got to clean and freeze in the next couple days. Gotta get my Elk app in by Feb 11. As of today, it is only 8 months and 5 days until we leave for White Mountains so it's time to get busy.
