Last fall, laying in the field after setting up decoys in what looked like the perfect setup, we had a flock of about 30 Canadas come straight in like they were all on a string. The shot was called, four guns went up and when the shooting was done there were 5 nice Canadas that didn't make the migration south. What was odd was one of the guys in the middle of the spread hadn't fired a shot. When we asked what the problem was he openned up his O/U and both chambers were empty. He had forgot to load his gun after the dekes were set. So of course, we started giving him what seemed like a ton of grief, we were just as shocked when he responded by saying that even if he had loaded up he wouldn't have shot anyway. I asked him what he was talking about, and with a straight face he told us there wasn't a drake in the whole flock and that he wasn't a hen shooter like the rest of us! I laughed so hard I couldn't shoot straight the rest of the morning. Every time I pulled the gun up all I could think of, is it a hen or a drake? :lol:

What's some of the banter that goes on in your blind?

Depends what day and who I am with. I usually hunt with the same guys, so we know each other pretty well. It can run from what hunting gear we want, past hunts, work, the farm I hunt with with my main hunting buddy, rifles and shotguns, stuff we want to hunt (like an African safari), hunting tips, you name it we have probably talked about it!

My opinion is that if they are close enough to tell, they are too darn close. Let em get out a ways and DROP EM!

That is really funny, we took a couple rookies out this last season and got them their first Honkers. I did not hear anything quite that funny but comments are occasionally made that make me laugh under my breath.

Take Care,
