Default Another duck season opened!

Opened my 54th duck season the first Saturday of November with my trusty VH 12 gauge and my now 1 year old lab pup "Skipper". I lost an old girl last December (my avatar, "Smoker") and have been suffering with or cherishing the new pup, depending on the day. We did a fair amount of "pupping" but made a couple of solid retrieves, didn't yell myself horse (don't think they heard me in the next county at all), and did pretty well with blind manners. Overall a howling success! Still real warm but blessed with very few mosquitos. Weren't a lot of birds here yet but got to watch a beautiful sunrise with my new best friend and shot a few blue wingers and the obligatory spoon bill!

Keith, congratulations on another opener. I think I did indeed hear you "call" your pup, though, here in Missouri. It was in between my own "calls" for our first year pup.

There is nothing quite like the optimism of starting a new puppy.
