Duck hunting season is finally underway and I have got my game plan down to the T. There’s something about being in the outdoors, huddled under my canopy, with my gear and a big thermos filled with hot coffee. It’s hard to put it into words but that is probably the most relaxing place in my life. I’ve always joked with my wife that it’s the only form of meditation that requires a gun and that is the main reason as to why I hunt.
A few buddies of mine like going in groups and have their duck blinds that could cover a small football field which I do not mind but doesn’t really suit my style. I have always felt that taking in your surroundings and keeping your eyes wide open, without making all the rustle of chip bags and gnawing on jerky, is the real way to go.
