ringers in the wind

Well the 2012 duck season opener was a great success. We spent the night in the boat to ensure the spot. It is not a well used spot but we wanted to make sure it was ours. When we showed up at the boat ramp at 11:30 pm there were already 3 boat trailers there. We arrived at out spot to find it empty, set out the decoys and were in the blind by 12:30 am. Johnny had no problem falling right to sleep and snoring his head off. Every time a boat went by I woke up fearing that they may be setting up too close to us. Forty boats must have passed us and all headed out to a more well known spot. When it was shooting time we had the entire area to ourselves. We finished our two man limits in 19 mins. Eleven ringers and one bluebill. After that we just sat back and watched the birds fly for hours. What an awesome season opener.
