We managed to knock down a good mix of wigeon and gadwalls and one unlucky spoony.

My 7 year old got his first bird and it will be making its place on the wall to commemorate a big moment. He water swatted it in the decoys. Proudly watched him take out a handful of avian decoys for this bird.

Congrats to the boy! Am sure he was/is pretty excited. I wouldn't be trying to blame the pellets in the Avian's on him though! :lol3:

The holes in the Dakota decoys are from yours truly. Sound like maracas when you toss them.

Congratulations! Decoys are replaceable for an occasion like this.
I got to watch my middle son take his first bird thanksgiving morning.

I’ve got 2 in the chute behind him so I’m hoping this is one of many fun firsts.

That’s the way it should be. My first two were able to take their first bird at 5 years old with their great grandfather’s 870. Now my 7 year old has moved up to a 20 ga 1100 that was my first gun after belonging to my mother.
I’ve got two more behind them that I can’t wait to get started.
Keep up the good work.
