duck hunting is hilarious?

5 posts in this topic

Openning weekend last year I took a guy out hunting, never been on a lake when its dark, never shot a duck or anything out of the sky. well we were going to our spot at o'duck thirty and we ran thru a flock of coots, so that scard the %$#& out of him. but it only gets better. we were just gettignready to fall a sleep for the long waite for the noon openner and a duck just came i between the both of us and he about jumped out of the boat and he asked what the H%^& was that I we never forget how hard I laughed it was the funniest thing ever and I will never forget it and he won't either

now he is a die hard and I'm glad I brought someone into a sport I love

Lets make some people laugh while the season is coming into full swing. the ducks are on the move and its only oct 2

My b-in-l I and are sitting in the boat, we've dropped a few and are making sure we have a solid count and know where the birds have drifted with the wind. He says we have 8 down and proceeds to show me where he sees them. I say we have 9 and show him the extra. He says no, it's only 8 and it must be lily pad turned up in the wind. We go over the shoot and can count only 8 birds that we know we downed.
So, we decide to call it quits, pick up the dekes and start picking up birds. 1, 2, 3.....7, 8, 9!! #9 turns out to be a timberdoodle that must have committed suicide by following in the teal he ended up floating next to and managed to make himself a 'double'!

It was a wilsons snipe. They look almost exactly alike. Duck, Snipe, Canvasback, Id... ? oops! Eyes open boys.

Fishface, the teal he was following came in straight and low over the water right at us into the wind. We never saw the bird behind him and he just got caught in the shot string. I do know duck types and can tell a duck from a snipe AND it was during legal shooting hours so please don't imply differently. It was just a funny accident....
