|Family Photo- Who tooted in the duck blind?|
Aside of the mayhem and fallout left after a crazy move and getting my lobster gear up, I've managed to transition into my other career as a teacher while also managing a few moments here and there to reassemble my duck hunting arsenal.
Here's a few quick things that I have done to get ready for this upcoming season.

2) Inventoried my ammunition and discovered that no hunting last January equals quite a few boxes left over along with that extra case I always order.
3) Pulled out hunting clothing and gear for never ending organization & packing
4) Brought out the Duckforce, installed boat blind, and intend to touch up with paint.

6) Decoys, decoys, decoys. I have brought out some of my new 19" Carry-Lite Eiders while acknowledging that my current set is in desperate need of repair. 25 GHG surf scoters will be seeing more action along with some repainted non-shot 17" eiders that survived last season. For fun, I attempted to count the total number of decoys I might have but lost count and quit around 167. Only God knows exactly how many decoys I have (locally or elsewhere).
7) Opening day is October 1, but I won't be venturing out until the weekend. The annual Duckpower shoot in central Maine will not include me, but will be having plenty of participants. I'm just simply opting to save my personal day for another day or activity. But I'll be sea duck hunting 4 days in a one week spread that will also include an appearance from the South Georgia rattlesnake, Trey Luckie who seems to be getting more excited with each passing day.
It's coming and I'm almost ready.
Have a great weekend,
The Downeast Duck Hunter
