The Characters, Part 1

Over the next several days, I am going to introduce you to the "characters" that you will most often see on this blog during hunting season. They cover a wide variety of personalities and have many different skills and abilities.

Meet Gel Helmet. He earned his name because of the over abundance of gel that you will find protecting his head at any time. As you can see in this picture, Gel Helmet has gel left over from the night before, or did he put it on before this duck hunt? This crusty barrier has been known to block No. 2 steel shot.

Gel Helmet likes to duck hunt. He only deer hunts when breakfast afterwards is a guarantee. His favorite breakfast is a sausage and cheese biscuit from Bojangle's. He enjoys sitting next to a smoker at Smoke Level cafe.

Gel Helmet excels at shooting mergansers and green-winged teal that land on the other side of a too deep to cross creek.

It is almost a guarantee that you will find Gel Helmet at Disney World twice a year. He likes the teacups. He is also an expert at Disney trivia. If you ever meet Gel Helmet, ask him about Mr. Toad handing the keys of his wild ride over to Winnie the Pooh.

Gel helmet is a loyal friend, father and husband.

He rules his local tennis league, runs a 4.2 second 40 yard dash, can scratch his kneecap standing straight up and is the son of a man that can sing like Elvis.

Gel Helmet's weapons of choice are a Benelli Nova for the duck swamp and a Marlin 30-30 for the pre-breakfast deer woods.
