I am a duck hunter... I really enjoy upland hunting, and clay shooting, but duck hunting is my passion... Each year as duck season approaches, I sort of grimace inwardly though. All that stuff I have to get ready... Bags, chokes, sorting ammo (that I should have done earlier), putting all the calls back on the lanyards... Re-cleaning all the decoys, putting new cords and anchors... Etc., etc... I find no joy in it… And although I go off my list, I just know I am forgetting something of vital importance (and I usually I am correct). But getting ready for turkey hunting is half the fun... Deciding what new diaphragm calls I am going to try... Coming up with new tactics that I am certain will be successful (which generally are not)... Taking out my 2 decoys (that I probably will not even use)... Organizing the vest, and putting all my little toys in there is just plain fun… This year I just got a new box call that I am excited to use... I gave up on box calls for a while, but have come to re-appreciate them... No other call in the vest that is easier to make such a realistic turkey sound... I have picked out hunters plenty of times using a mouth call immediately... Been a few turkeys I thought might be guys on a box call though. Next week I am taking my two girls up to the foothills to scout some property I have access to, and I am hoping with two cute little girls in tag, I might be able to acquire some more access… Two cute little girls smiling and waving in the back seat at the land-owner as I stop to ask permission will NOT hurt my chances.
