    Each year I'm less and less of a coach and more of just a hunting partner. I go to tell him something and he's already doing it. Very proud of him. Seen a fair amount of birds today to keep us paying attention and enough of them came in to meet his gun. Might just watch next year. This years goal is learning and using his calls. Man time sure flys. We were more hidden than it looks like. 20201024_135557.jpg 20201024_135516.jpg 20201024_135751.jpg

    I’m Glad you got your son out. I do have a question, in the last pic is your son supposed to be hidden? Or is that how you guys hunt?

    even though you can't really tell we are surrounded by weeds and growth much higher than us. That backdrop and the ghillie suit worked well. The ground rises right behind us and we blend in pretty good.

    You are being an ***

    It’s a youth hunt be happy for the kid and go criticize somebody else.

    The view from inside the blind is always different from the view outside of it.

    OP, congrats on getting your young man out in the swamp. Looks like a great time.

    I don’t take my sons hunting anymore.
    Now, they take me. Oh, don’t worry, we get out quite a bit.
    I remember when my dad stopped taking me and I was taking him.
    Don’t blink! It happens too fast.
    But it’s great!

    great memories being made for sure. I remember those days well with my boys, they go fast. My youngest son takes me everywhere, I almost never drive anywhere except for when my wife and I to go to the store. I remember well the days when my own dad was packing me on his back to the blind some 50+ years ago. Now I just hop in the truck and Caleb takes care of the rest. Not so much with my older son, he hasn't spoken to me in over 2 years now.

    good for you for being his partner and not his commander. I know we duck hunters can be neurotic with certain things, but the self confidence it will give him to know his dad trusts him is worth a few ducks.
