Been waiting months for this day.. Myself my son Luke (12 years old) and good buddy Anthony Babich decided we would hunt out of Anthony's TDB so we could have more room and get some photos. Decided on an afternoon falling tide hunt. Had a few hiccups getting underway, Anthony's phone fell in the canal but he jumped into canal with waders on and found it in the mud! Life proof case saved it but realized waders had a hole in the boot so he spent the rest of the day with one leg wet. Headed out of canal into open bay and boat would only do 8MPH, we eventually realized the prop was damaged so we had to creep over to our spot. on the way over we kicked up lots of birds, once there we were greeted by a bunch of black ducks which quickly left as we walked the boat in. We all worked together setting out the decoys, once back in the boat we waited.. Had a single black duck come in but didn't full commit, then 3 more a little later on. Even the brant were flairing! So we removed the mojo, That helped. As Luke was eating a twix bar i saw a bird coming in from our left into the wind he dropped the twix bar and then dropped the Hybrid black duck with one shot, hit him dead on bird was on his back feet up! I will never forget that look on his face, huge smile! He walked out and retrieved the bird. A little later on he took a shot at some committed brant but they flew away to live another day. Had a few more ducks fly past but they had other plans to land somewhere else. After legal shooting time Luke and I picked up all the decoys and we all headed back. On the way home dropped bird off to get mounted. Looking forward to many more days afield with Luke and friends....
