Got out a lot this year, should have gone out more in the early season. Learned something’s and met some great new people. Here are some bucket list items for next season..... Take out more new folks, make a better effort to take out more Marines. Do more puddle duck hunting in the early season. Open water gunning is still my passion but early season the divers are just not down. Make a workable net rig. I’ve been trying to make a pod of birds with decks on individual lines. There are always a few tangled in the middle of the group.I think I can make a light weight foam net rig I can easily deploy. Get a real layout boat. I towed my sneakbox out and the birds seem to be much less wary of it. A true layout would be even less visible and if I can carry it on the mother boat I can move faster and safer. Go for scoter more often. Only rigged out twice for scoter and had no luck both times. This is my heritage and my passion. Did actually see my first NC Oldsquaw this year. Trailer the boat up to New York and take my grandsons sea duck hunting.
