If you're not High-Ballin', You're not Callin"Posted Tuesday, November 15, 2011, at 12:46 AM
Just too much time talking about duck hunting, yet, my friend down on the Marais de Cygnes reserve in east central Kansas, has made limited out hunts for several days now, his tail-gate photos with Zeke, his pointing Labrador, machine of a dog, give me no doubt of the collective prowess!! The latest issue was five green-heads and one red-head drake!!! A red-head!!! I have arrived in this modern age, in rememberance of a time when there were no red-heads, there were no canvas-backs, and taking a wood duck would result in a fine of $150 or better!!! Our collective efforts, in improving our waterfowl habitats both up north and our feeding habitat in our Mississippi Flyways areas, have brought us to this time, we have birds to harvest, we have habitat to enjoy, and will continue to love our outdoors in the autumn, whether we are calling a "high ball", or a clucking feed call on our blind, we'll always love our time "in the blind"!!!!!Stay Warm, Be Well, and Get Some Birds!!!Thanksgiving is just a shout ahead!!!just kicking a subject, loving the time, watching my birds, and being with the time...molater, kkr
