Well, with work-school-weather its been tough getting my boys out on a hunt. The two oldest have been out before and my 4 yo was asking just about every day - "Dad, when are we going to go out". So getting in a little early on Wed from work - conditions were as good as it was going to get. With most of my sure thing Woodduck holes dried up due to the lack of rain - remembered an old mill pond that always seemed to hold water and was easy to get to.
So - I loaded the two of 3 boys and off we went! It was a bit of a walk to get to "the Seceret spot" as my youngest would call it - but have to say, with the conversation that took place during it - wished it was miles!
We got to it and settled in -with both boys on the look out and blowing the calls to be sure ALL of the birds around heard them -:rf:
With about 20 minutes left - all of a sudden the dumbest mallard on the earth came swinging in! With dad looking like a hero - and missing on his first 2 shots (its not easy on that kind of a stage!) we dropped it.
Have to say - thin my boys came out of there skins!
Needless to say - they are looking to do it again EVERY Night!
