Hello ya'll. I was just wondering if anybody has considered or attempted to take that crippled duck home to nurse it back to good health rather than beating it's cranium against your stock or ringin' it's neck? Last week I downed a drake widgeon, only busted it's wing. Well my dog/buddy (his name is Killer) retrieved it for me. When he brought it back I gave his skull a good pounding on my stock, I figured it was goodnight for old drakey boy. When I got home I was wrong. I unloaded my decoy bags out of the boat to rinse em off. I was in a hurry to get home so I stuffed old drakey boy at the top of a bag. When I opened it up he ran for San Francisco! I was surprised, though it didn't amaze me. Ducks are tough and smart. Old drakey was probably playing dead so I wouldn't give him another good whackin. Well anyways that funny question above crossed my mind before I gave old drakey his final lullabye on the front end of my chrome bumper on the Ford Excursion. Ouch! I sure am glad I'm a human...well most of the time.
