...since I posted here at the Fuge in the NE forum (other than classifieds) and even longer since I duck hunted. Stopped hunting after my Dad passed in 2014. Kind of lost interest with him gone plus health issues also contributed. Feeling a little better these days and decided to do a little hunting again while I still can. Got out today to hunt the flood tide with Sadie. Oh my is she rusty. Was quite the adventure. Managed to call a nice Black into the decoys for my 1st duck since Dec 2013 and she retrieved it for me. We lost another one that she should have got but it has been so long since she did anything too I can't blame her; it is on me. Was nice to be out there again. The salt marshes and bays are my favorite places in the world. Can't get out like I used to but man did it feel good being out there today. Hard to believe ol' Thunder has been gone 8 years this past August and that Sadie turned 8 in October. Man where does the time go? Sadie showing off with her bird.
