Duck Season in full swing

October 1, 2018

After a summer full of 4-H shooting sports and getting much better with his shotgun, Charlie was absolutely amped to get out for the Youth opener of duck season. Along with his shotgun practice, he has spent endless hours in the field with Rua getting him trained up for the big day (and the next 10 years!!).  We got to the water waaayyy too early but wanted to be sitting on "Spot X" before anyone else.  After learning some new constellations for a hour or so it was finally shooting time.  We had a bunch of Teal come into the decoys in the dark and as soon as it was legal time to shoot a smal

l group of blue wings made the mistake of flying into range.  Charlie smoked his first bird and Rua was fast on the retrieve.  A few more birds came by and soon Charlie had his second bird of the morning, a nice chubby green head!  This one landed about 50 yards away in head high grass.  No problem for Rua who found the mallard within minutes. Must have been all those hours training with Charlie!!  

 

Last weekend was opener for the rest of us and Charlie wanted to hunt with Mom.  Like we always say, "ain't nobody happy till Momma's happy".  I'm just glad they're both happy in waders!!
