My old Golden turned into the October early season duck dog. She couldn't handle the ice breaking, but that early season is where she continued to shine.

I believe in God and divine intervention. I know it's an old fashioned concept but it has happened to me too many times to be just chance. I have tried to honor my friend Dana by hunting with the Fox he so graciously sold me before his untimely death. Every time I use his gun the ducks have rained down on me. This is two years in a row it has happened. Anyone else feel there is a higher power at work while hunting at times??

Craig, If I were you, I would use Dana's gun more often! Jim

Definitely Craig - on our last duck hunting trip to Quebec, Henry B. was definitely looking over my shoulder when I rolled a big Blackduck about 55 yards out on a quartering crossing shot. When I raised the gun to shoot, our guide said, "No, No, too far!" Swing and momentum took over and he took the full load of a Kent TM 3" round of 1 3/8 #5s and went down like a rock. Thanks, Henry!

This is a place I took the Super Fox. I hunted it with a long time friend that is now gone. It is over a mile hike through the marshes to get back there. Carrying decoys and a limit of birds out in waders is a challenge. This water stays open when everything else freezes. We enjoyed some incredible times together back there. My son took this picture on a rainy Thanksgiving weekend. I stayed inside. I haven’t been back since losing my friend. Too many birthdays and it seems a lot farther now. John

Thanks for the picture, Loggy. Does the water stay open because of springs in that spot. Jim

Jim,
It is a creek with lots of springs in the area. John
