    Best duck hunting memory. There are several but I guess the best was last Thanksgiving when my brother who absolutely loves duck hunting but hadn't been in a position to go for the last several years went with me to my pit in Missouri. We shared my gun taking turns shooting and brought home a mixed single limit of mallards, pintail and gadwall. There was only 1 license in the pit but I talked him into shooting
    Who started me hunting. My dad first took me along when I was just a gooseling.

    How many years have you been duck hunting: 18 (before I was actually old enough to shoot them I was racing the retrievers to go pick them up)
    Favorite memory in a duck blind: The last time I was able to hunt with my grandfather. In the blind were myself, my father and my grandfather. Very slow day and not many birds flying but three birds did decide to pitch into the decoys that day. All three dropped.
    Favorite duck call: Echo
    Favorite goose call: Sean Mann
    Favorite duck gun: Browning A5
    Favorite Duck Load: #3 Heavy Shot or Drylok
    Duck Decoy of Choice: Hardcore
    Goose Decoy of Choice: BigFoot
    Favorite Duck Blind Food: Scrapple, Egg, and Cheese sandwich on white toast
    Worst thing you have ever eaten in a duck blind: Anything tastes good when it is 20 degrees outside and the birds aren't flying
    Do you prefer the Left corner, right corner, or in the middle in the duck blind?
    Left Corner
    The person (people) who started you in duck hunting: My dad and my uncle. Spent most of my childhood hunting with them on the weekends or when I could get a day off of school. Always loved being in the woods or hanging around the rivers. When I was barely old enough to see out of the pit blind I watched my first ducks and geese pitch into the decoys and I was hooked. Nothing like spending a day in a blind with your family or best friends. The ducks are just a bonus.
