Well, to say the lease, we hammered them. We were done 30 minutes after shooting time began. It would have been sooner if I was "on" at the beginning. All told, we each took limit, totaling 12 birds (6 wood ducks and 6 gadwalls). The pond we were hunting on was shallow on one end (up to the waist), and way over your head on the other end. As we didn't have a dog, Mark brought his "retriever" (aka fishing pole with a top lure) that we used to get the birds! Brilliant! Took us a little bit to get them all, but we got em. Great hunt, Mark!
Mark also gave me some waders he used for his kids, and my daughter is ready for next season!
Enjoy the photos:
