    Considering your boys, there better be food around. Those frames require serious sustenance.

    I was really just teasing. I still do several hunts each year that start with leaving the house somewhere between 1:00 and 3:00 am. Wouldn't care for a steady diet of it, but I do get it. That said, it's awful nice to come home from a stretch at camp more rested than when you originally left home.

    Usually just snack foods and water. Cope or cigs is a must. Some days we will take the coleman stove out and cook bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches.

    Our northern ducks aren't so gentlemanly, they usually arrive during the cooking or while everyone still has a plate in their hands. Thus, breakfast is usually burnt, cold or spilled on the floor of the blind.

    I'll be sure to bring a couple of milk crates loaded with food if I ever hunt with you. Milk crates will pull double duty.

    Can't wait to see your oldest in orange.

    Don't get me wrong, it happens to us too. The trick is for the cook to know the caller well. He can then tell when it's five seconds 'til "shoot." He turns from the stove, picks up his gun, shoots to the plug and then flips the eggs. It's either that or he doesn't shoot at all. One go at some ducks isn't worth ruining breakfast.

    One of my favorite memories is of the first hunt I took my 14 yr old stepson & 15 year old nephew. A heaping plate of eggs, sausage & fixins was served. Looked up and a couple drakes lit in the decoys. I got the boys up, powder & feathers flew. When the guns stopped both drakes were on the water. Sent the phidough, but, he was no where to be found. When the potlicker was finally located, he was putting the final touch on my stepsons plate.

    Birds are so thick here in Virginia there is no time for food until after we shoot our limit. Too busy reloading and sorting out species and who shot what. We are usually sitting at the diner no later than an hour after LST. Said no one ever...
