Jed and I went out yesterday for a quick Christmas eve hunt. Jed had the goal of a nice drake wood duck this season and yesterday he reached his goal. He shot a beautiful drake that is bound for the wall. One of the awesome things about being a new duck hunter is all the new species you get to shoot. Each one makes that specific hunt all the more special. We were off the water by 10 a.m. and back home to help with Christmas festivities. I would like to give a big thanks to Ron Smith for letting me borrow his camera for the remainder of the season. It's so nice to be able to get better quality pictures of my hunts. Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you get many ducks in the new year! Let's not forget the greatest gift of all. Christ was born in flesh and blood, to live a perfect life, and die for our sins. Be very thankful!
