A Good Afternoon


So what if we didn't get any ducks to come into the decoys.I can't think of a better way to spend a Monday afternoon.With a good friend of mine and my brother we attempted to hunt a spot we had scouted this summer.The area was very "ducky" but the weather did not cooperate.With a full moon and a blue bird day it's hard to get sea ducks interested in breaking up there raft to come and check it out.No worries though,it was a smooth ride across the Hampton Harbor and we had a good time just talking and hanging out in the 45 degree weather.I had a great video of my brother,Swamp Thing,playing the Ghostbusters theme song on a duck call but it won't post unfortunately.We have a serious cold snap heading our way on the East Coast.Unfortunately quickly all the ponds and small creeks are sure to freeze.So with the weather being what it is,the Swamp Thing and I have a few field goose hunts planned in his neck of the woods,Maryland.The ducks I'm sure will be here next week,to bad I will be back on the boat.So it seems my duck hunting season is over and now I'm left with some promising goose hunts.So I guess my first season with a boat wasn't a complete loss.I found a great early season wood duck spot and I have been allowed to hunt a few decent puddle duck spots.No problem I will be ready again next year.No reason to be down,I still have a chance to get some get geese later this week.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL . . . GHOSTBUSTERS! LOL! Even a bad day hunting is better than a good day working!
