Oh man. I started shooting a gun for ducks, geese, pheasant, and quail when I was 9. Together my dad and I started turkey hunting when I was 13 or 14. When I was 16 I shot a rifle for the first time and knew I wanted to hunt deer. But I picked up a bow instead. one day I'll get my dad to go sit in the blind or double stand with me to hunt deer. He loves shooting my bow but doesn't know about sitting there without his coffee. But duck hunting has always been my pride and joy. Just seeming them suck in on a sunny day, nothing beats it. I've got great places to shoot mallards in Kansas and while you may find me in the stand until the rut or thanksgiving, once December hits and it freezes up I'm out chasing the green heads.
