The 2012 season started with Diesel, Rabid and me meeting at Rabid’s house the night prior to the opener with the hopes of swapping stories and getting gear ready for the hunt. Onyx seemed to understand the reason for Diesel and me showing up, apparent by the body-wag going on.
Opening morning found three out of four of us ready to go, Diesel, Onyx and myself…Rabid appeared to be very “tired” and seemed to have a hard time gathering himself for the hunt. After a coffee or three he seemed to be better. Diesel and I headed to the garage to get ready for the quick trip to the honey-hole.
The morning started with great promise as there were numerous ducks flying in and out of the puddle with just minutes to go to legal time. The first borage landed four dusks in the water and we were off and running. Onyx in her true fashion gathered the ducks and brought them to us. Using two mojos we had them turning and cupping from many directions.
When the day was done, at ten am we had six ducks to take in and a lot of stories to tell.
What a great opener!!! Rabid and Onyx, thank you for the opportunity to start the season with such success. Diesel, thank you for the memories and the stories we now have for Duck Season 2012. Those stories and the rest of our duck hunting pictures to come....2013!
