    During this last off season I spent time helping others. I have a deep seated passion for waterfowling, it’s 3rd priority in my life. My faith in Christ and family come before waterfowling.
    That said most, not all, but most have no clue what it takes, nor do they have the desire
    Unfortunately average joe goes 3 or 4 times during the season, he wants to pull the trigger so if it’s remotely close he goes to the plug. Maybe he bags the bird, or he says”well at least i hit him!”
    I spent the majority of this season helping and hunting with 2 guys, one gets it, the other one doesn’t
    i feel I didn’t get enough return on my investment in time, who knows. I do know this, I’ll be 64 if I make it to next season. If I make it I am going to be a bit more selfish and shoot my ducks, my way!
    There is a lot of knowledge on this forum, I learned from Blackdog 58, calikev and a couple more. Those 2 stand out. So if you see me at a refuge and ask me a question, don’t be offended if I direct you here for the answer.
    Yes I know I rambled
    Ciao

    It’s supposed to be fun Craig. If it isn’t, you’re doing it wrong and need to make a change. Life’s too short to be miserable amigo.

    First mistake would be to ask anyone at a refuge for help

    Sounds like somebody is a little frustrated...
