I mentioned on a couple of my posts that we had a barn fire in September. The bird aviary attached to the barn had a heatlamp. Oops when they get knocked down they start fires. Anyhoo. I lost all my ducks and geese. That's what upset me. The rest is stuff. My truck was next to the barn and burnt too. I had got back from hunting that afternoon and my H12 was in back, my waders,vest, jacket, shells etc were still in the cab. Couldn't put the fire in the truck out cause all the shells cooking off. The homeowners insurance just came through. I'm working up a big order thru Rogers (free delivery). Lots of various decoys, waders, etc. My calls I'd had for 30+ years. Some of my dekes longer. Strange to sit down and make a list of all the little duck hunting gear you accumulate over a lifetime. Some things I'll replace others not. Do yourself a favor and take an inventory and keep it in your safe (guns,ammo, dekes, fishing poles, tackle etc.) trying to sit around trying to figure it out later wil hurt. Little things like your grandpa s old duck call are things that hit home when your sifting through things. On the positive side... It's gonna be a duck hunters Christmas when those packages start arriving. Putting new line and weights on dozens of dekes and stuff like that woo hoo. Going down to Anchorage in a cpl weeks to get a new jon boat. Should be a fun winter project. Ztarting over can be frustrating or fun depending on how you look at it.
