well its getting down to only weeks till opening day so the decoys are on the lawn for a check over and the callers have come out to get our ear in again. the kids and I have been quaking and sqauking outside and its good to be in the country as the odd duck comes past. well last night the dog was out with us and couldnt work out what the blue blases was going on, the ducks were circling us and Dad wasnt shooting them
then I made some dummy shells and was swinging the pump action to get in the swing of things and pumping out shells
that was too much for the dog he was even trying to retrieve the empty shells. then tonight we were out doors and I had the shotty and my daughter was having a quack or two ,I picked up the caller to show her the speed of calling and were calling some distant birds when a pair swooped down from behind us with wings cupped and were only 10yrds up when
hello thats 3 people and a dog on that lawn
I dropped the caller and swept up the shotty and went click at them, made me feel real good but didnt help the poor dog.
we then went around to the other side of the section and patterned our redneck adaptor and the dog was over the fence so quick before he realised oops Im not allowed over the fence. to give him credit he stopped within 3 meters and came back. poor wee fella is going to be a nervous wreck before opening day.
