    Ha. Yeah happens to all of us. Mallards seem bullet proof at times. Then spoonies you don’t even have to be close. They always fall.

    I remember hunting Sac in the early 80’s out of parking lot C... there is or was a huge open pond in the back with a mud island...as I walking out to set up in the afternoon I decided to jump shot the tules first . 2 pairs of mallards jumped up at separate times...I just stood there mesmerized and surprised these birds were even there. Didn’t even pull the trigger and they were 5 yards away. Needless to say no birds for that day but a funny memory.
    In my defense i was shooting Lead #4’s out of a 30” Full choked 870 !

    A good gun mount as you see the "Line of flight" , then a nice smoothe move as your eyes are fixed on the "lead" as the barrel goes from Butt ,Body,Beak..........
    BOOM...... ! That usually awakens most up from that November Blind Dream ?

    Great golfing weather Jim. Sucks for hunting ducks though. Especially in the rice.
