January 8th duck hunt

Today started out great and ended slow. It began with Gel Helmet arriving extremely late. He walked in with about 2 minutes to spare for legal shooting time. He wasted no time by almost immediately shooting 2 wood ducks. It was a nice double! Good shooting by the Helmet. One of the woodies was about 5 ft. off of the end of his barrel. His shot literally cut the bird in half. Nasty. A few minutes later, I shot a mallard drake. That was all of the shooting. We did see a few more mallards and wood ducks, but overall pretty slow. It was a fun hunt. They all are whether we have success or not. We are thankful to be able to do this as a hobby. Rowza and his brother in law also joined us. They were in a bad spot for shooting and did not get the chances that the Helmet and I got.
