NoDak 2011: The Keys

He shuffled his feet through the grass. Like he was searching for something. His jacket and hat in a heap. Head down. Shoulders slumped. Zeus and I walked up but Dusty wouldn’t look at us. I didn’t want to ask the question. Because I didn’t want to hear the answer. “Dusty…what are you looking for?” … Continue reading

NoDak 2011

The prairie sky slowly came alive. Pink fading to red bleeding into a purplish orange. My feet slowly going numb thanks to a bitter west wind filling my layout blind. It suddenly hit me. This was our last morning. Two years of scheming and planning. Months of saving. In this cornfield I silently thanked North … Continue reading

Youth Duck Hunting Weekend 2011

He’s at least a foot taller since I last saw him. Reclined in the passenger seat. Camo from head to toe. Passed out cold. My brother and I greeted Karin before she woke him up with a motherly tone. He was up by the time I walked out of 7-11 with essentials for the hunt. … Continue reading

Duck hunting is all about those few perfect seconds. You can close your eyes and re-live those times when birds suddenly appear and enjoy that excitement when you realize they’re coming in. You always remember when a few notes on the call make them spin and set on the decoys with wings locked and feet down. You can’t forget everytime … Continue reading

Duck Opener: Lake St. Clair

My duck season is officially off to a rough start.  After a lousy opening morning in the middle zone, I was pumped to get a second chance in Lake St. Clair. But  (and I don’t really need to be reminded) duck hunting doesn’t always happen like I plan. Regardless, my alarm rang at 1:45 am … Continue reading
