I spent Thursday morning of our vacation with my sons Jesse and Jeshua duck hunting at Randy and Denise's home. If you ever need a good laugh, come and watch a 'city boy' like me trying to act like a 'county boy.' It's making me chuckle just typing this out!
In all fairness I think I'm kidda getting the hang of it. This was my first time duck hunting and I got it with the first shot. I had to rely on some avid hunters to tell me that it was a small wood duck that I shot, because all I knew is that it looked like a duck and quacked like a duck.
It took about an hour to track it down and retrieve it. It sure would have been nice to have a dog trained to fetch. There were a couple of times I thought I was going to sink into the mud past my hip waders. Those who have gotten stuck in the mud almost up to your waist know that it's completely exhausting trying to get out.
My boys enjoyed themselves a lot when it came to retrieving our duck, but especially when it came time to stop at Chance's Country Store on Rt. 331 for a scrapple and egg sandwich and a HUGE piece of coconut creme pie to celebrate. Yummy!!!
