well the decoy would have worked great IF I had remembered the battery
never mind we had a absolute ball of a time. my son got 2 ducks, big bro got 3 and I got 4, brother in law had fun and made bangs to put holes in the sky but went home smiling anyway.
2 possoms that were both big black shemales must have liked the look of the cocker spaniel as they cam right into camp to seranade him from up the trees 10' above his head!!!
they got added to the bag for the weekend but probably cost us more ammo than the ducks
1 sat right up the top of a pine and we couldnt see it after Nathan had fired so after a few minutes of running around peering up the trees with torches I got sick of that approach as I was getting rather cold having just got out of the sleeping bag wearing only a smile
so I got proactive and grabbed the brothers new defender and went into reconnasince by fire mode!!
that was serious fun 12 or 15 shots later(whos counting
) still nothing but it had shut up so we went back to bed. the next morning I looked up the tree(somewhat easier in the day light not to mention more open due to the "pruning" I had done) and low and behold the possom was peering down at me
to scared to come out of the tree. the young fella made sure of it no trouble.
a great weekend had by all. the dog even got to have a swim to retrieve the birds.
