I shot these on 1-29-2010. My cousin got 2 specks, 2 drake sprig and a drake mallard. It was a good day.
The last day of the season, we changed plans and went to the Lodge and took my 83 year old uncle along. We went jump shooting the first 20 minutes (or at least that was the plan) and my cousin did not come back for 3 hours. He came back with 2 mallards, 3 wood ducks, a gadwall and a wigeon. When he got back, my uncle was very mad at him and my cousin was tired and was not really in the mood to go out into the field with all the gear. My uncle, his dad, insisted and we made the long walk out to our favorite pond and I did not fire a shot the whole day.I thought I learned a long time ago that when my cousin goes jump shooting, it is a good idea to tag along as I can outshoot him. I did not know I was going to get stuck at the truck with his dad when he decided to go off on his own
My cousin has a talent for finding ducks when none seem to be flying.
