I had five dozen decoys out one day last week. The ducks were pretty "hinky" about coming in closer than 40 yards. Too bad the season on LBSB's isn't open. (Little Brown Shore Birds). They came in like it was old home week. They hobnobbed with the decoys for 20 minutes until a widgeon drake stopped by. He stayed, they left. Today we had a couple of big flocks of cacklers drop in. What a racket. A few of these stayed around, too. We quit a few birds shy of the limit so we could catch breakfast at our favorite cafe before they switched to the lunch menu. The young waitress has been bugging us to take her duck hunting. We introduced her to the dog today now she insists on a trip. This is going to be fun, two old guys, one young guy, a cute, blond waitress, and a blond Labrador. I'm trying to decide whether to tell my wife.
