There was not a shortage of birds either, except for the Mallards. There was plenty of Canada’s and the Snow and Blues was flock after flock, at times. Some were very, very high, and then there was some that would have been in the decoying height, in years past.
Sure would be fun, for this old man, to just one more time, to have a fair size flock, give us the look we have seen. I got started waterfowl hunting back in the early 70’s that was the bird you went to Kohler’s for. It was so much fun, to watch them turn back in the wind and just stand there, checking out every thing, before they would start to let down. Some time they would do their thing and tumble (corn shuck), sometimes they come in quiet, not saying anything and the next time they would all be talking. I know we get to see some of this stuff in the spring now, but it is not the same as it was back then, when you had to call them in and not a machine doing the calling, with that you can’t hear them talking back.
Thought I got a picture of Lyle’s dog on a retrieve, of a big Canada, but for some reason, I didn’t, so you have to look at another sunrise, from the pits.
Better get this posted So say a little prayer for the troops tonight
See Ya Carl
