At Least The Season Is Not Over...Yet
We continued on and I managed to spook a pair of mallards too far out of range. They circled back toward us and I tried pointlessly to call them but it was no use. I haven't called in so long I really suck. I mean REALLY suck. Not that I was ever that good before but I really suck now. I need to practice. Much of the rest of the time was a nice hike with a shotgun.
Beacause that ring necked flew toward an area near the canal. We headed back there to see if we could find the bird there. My father and I walked opposite directions as we were running out of light. After about 10 minutes I heard a shot and looked in that direction. I saw two big ducks way up in the air. I tried calling them up, they were having none of that. And so the day ended as did this trip. Not really a success in terms of bag nor birds seen but that is hunting. We have little more than one week left before next season so hopefully we have at least one more trip in us. Hopefully the old man will also get a bird.
