I'm at best an average shooter. When I shoot ducks (or any bird for that matter) I typically have bruises the next day where I shouldn't. Those are the shots that I miss or maybe just break a wing. Or worse, cripple a bird. Some days are better than others. Like those days where I kill 6 birds with let's say 8 shells and then shoot 8 shells to kill my 7th bird.

It's been a crazy year and I never got a day to pick up my decoys after season. My bride went down around February with hip nerve problems and time got away from me. She had surgery in May and then another surgery in July on her knee so I've been mom and dad.

I never thought I would see the day when marijuana(hemp) Would literally be grown out in the open, Understanding that hemp is the male species of marijuana, There is not a lot of THC content, In almost specifically grown for CBD oil.

A little background interview on Habitat Flats. Love him or hate him, he seems like a well grounded man with a vision, a good sense of business, and a better sense of habitat management. He feeds far more ducks than he kills.

I like his style, I like his videos and I like his philosophy on duck habitat management.

I'm a lab guy and I would like to hear from other lab guys. I've never based my dog on color of his coat. I go on a mission, study the litters, health clearances, and then go out there and make an informed decision.

So I'm curious what everyone uses to season. It seems it's a regional thing. Maybe that's just in my head.

I use to use Montreal Steak on red meat, still do some, or just salt, pepper, and worchester sauce.

Equal time for the "brown dogs" of the retriever world, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. I don't know a lot about the origin, their habits, or their skill set. I don't even know what the standard colors are. School me on that information.
