It was not until the sun was well up that a few geese started to fly. I called but could not see them well as the sun was on me.

Hunt 10, Friday, January 17th. Sunrise. I had the decoys moved from the pond blind and set up behind the house, before the sun was up. I had not hunted the pasture, two days ago.

and down, the closest one 36 yards. I shoot and miss. The flock moves away. I shoot and miss by an inch. If they had been elephants, they would both be dead!

Hey Bowboy, do not wish the days away too fast. Remember when we were a lot younger and wanted to be older. Now that we are older, me 80 years, I sometime wish I was 10 years younger so I could keep enjoying the good life longer..
