At first I was bent out of shape about having to hunt where it can be so unpredictable, but as is often the case, I just learned how to make full use of the area. I had a great second half of duck season pass-shooting, decoying, and jumping and I capped it off today with a nice goose to end the season. Strangely enough, I was leaving because of the number of good 'ol boy skybusters and they spooked one right past me.
Drew waited until after duck season was over to show up. I couldn't resist taking a picture for scale... but now it looks like the goose is whispering in his ear.
That is an AWESOME pic. Congrats on the hunt and more so for you're new Son
