So.... I slip out on a solo trip this morning. I dinked around with the camcorder (Not easy with only one person.). I had a hen and a drake come in 8 mins after light and I was messing with the camcorder and she almost flew into me but I didn't get it on film nor did I shoot either one ..

Then there was a Single hen Fly in and about the same thing happened.

So I set the camcorder up on a Tripod behind me and knowing I had 50 mins left of film I jsut let it roll. not 5 mins later 3 ducks came over. I knew the spot I set the camcorder to view so When they took a REAL close by flight I stayed hunkered down. They baned and Circled around and I had the same thing happen. Almost I thought, Well within distance but in the wrong coridor... then here they come again... Right down the pike !!! 2 greeny's and a hen.... I wai .... I wait.... AND BANG !!!! BANG !!!! BANG !!!!! 3 birds come out of the air and I have it on film !!!

Or so I thought.....

I went and Found 2 of the ducks and looked for the 3rd for a long time. Not luck. I went back to see were the ducks fell on camcorder and I had Bumped it when I hit Record and walked away.

So.... I go back and spend another 10 mins looknig for this duck. a few others fly over but I tried ducking down while looking but I think I was always busted.

I gave up and sat in the blind, nothing coming in so I go look for Ducky again... Sure as Crap here comes the ducks. It was a Flight of about 45-50. I was in the Bushes looking for Ducky and Hunkered down. YES, My Rear right in the water, I was jsut wearing Hip boots. Fortunately they didn't fill up. the ducks circled 2 times then came in hard. YAH, I already had 1 hen which is the limit and there was so Many ducks all bunched up I let them go hoping a Greeny would come out of the group...... YEPPErs, Nothing ;)

Anyway, Wife had a Meeting at 9AM but I had a Good day with my first ever 3 shots knocking 3 birds down. I looked for the 3rd bird once again before I left and Still nothing.

Heading out tonight for Deer. HAve a good weekend !!

Now that you are an official duck hunter, it is time to get a pup. Trust me, sometimes the duck hunting gets boring, but watching the dog work makes it worth it every time.

Way to go on the triple. Not an easy task on ducks. Too bad the video missed the event. ;)

I won't tell you about this morning then.... Only a 25% recovery. The bushes are still high. I should either get a dog "OR" bring out the weed wacker and get rid of thos pesky cat tails.... ;)
