    DefaultThe Thing About Hunting at Cappy's Place

    If you don't see anything while hunting the wetlands, you can always go back to his house and see a bunch.

    It was one of those everything went right mornings. Started off with a pair of Gadwalls that made a pass, came around for a 2nd look about 35 yards out and cupped. One shot and they both dropped! Had a double dawg retrieve right out of the box.

    Next came a group of 3 Wigeon that responded perfectly to my whistle ... "who-is-she, who-is-she". They cupped, lowered landing gear and ... Bang-splash, bang-splash and bang-splash. My first triple in the past several seasons! The last group was 15 minutes later and they too turned on the whistle, glided in over Carol and bang-splash. As they flared I followed on the 2nd duck and splashed it too. We decided that was enough for the morning and we'd get out of there to give the wetlands a rest. It had been an hour and there was a fair amount of noise between the shooting and dawg handling so we hung it up a few short of a double limit ... but with a full limit of enjoyment with the wifey person and our two kids!

    If you look closely in a couple of the pics you can see Remi's left eye is better but still red. She cried and pleaded and begged this morning to go along as we were loading up. I gave into her ... she's such a naughty girl!

    She's not a naughty girl she just has her Daddy wrapped around her little paw!
