    yup, so bad!
    Do yours roll on the muskrat mounds also?
    That is the one two punch that puts some funk in the truck for the ride home.

    Did you see my post about the 200 yard blind and how I handled him from a muskrat platform in 18" of water and 2' of weeds to an uncertain aof?
    Handled him dowmwind and let the nose do the rest!!

    It was a riot, he found the hen wood duck.


    We are having a blast this year.
    Also the lettle pecker is actually behaving in the blind.
    Flippin' me out when he sits there, quietly scanning the skys.
    When we shoots, he waits till I call his name.

    I am blown away by this as he has struggled mightily with blind and line manners.

    We got some Senior level passes but I quit running him because of the struggle.
    All we worked on was steadiness.

    DRAMATIC improvement!
    Excited to see if this translates over to HT's.
