I shot my first duck during my Junior year in high school. By that time I had a nice buck and three gobblers to my credit – since then I have shot a couple of thousand ducks, a few geese, and no more deer or turkeys!
Talk about a change in priorities!
Anyway, once upon a time I passed a query about a duck-hunting article across an editor, and he refused it, stating that most duck hunters don’t read magazine articles about duck hunting. Whatever, I never did sell many articles on the topic, so if you are not inclined to partake in such lore, you won’t hurt my feelings a bit if you click on another page. I just felt like I should include a few notes on a subject that has meant so much to me for so long.
And I simply cannot get enough of that picture!
