saturday hosted two marines from Camp Lejune on an open water hunt. They had never rigged out for open water shooting before. Saw a lot of birds but the mild weather prevented us from peeling a few birds off the the larger flights. They shot a few and missed a few but had a good time. My wife does not like me hunting alone and is very happy when I have someone along who can pull me back into the boat. We all benefit from the arrangement. Could not find a more polite and nice pair of guys. I’ve hosted marines before and never regretted their being along. If you get the chance to take a service man out give it a shot. Many are from another state and don’t have connections in the area.
