First a little background... When I was a teenager (8-10 years ago) I did a bit of duck hunting w/ my dad and uncle and loved it. But then I got busy, and you know how it goes.... So, this fall I decided to get back into duck hunting here in NH and bought a dozen decoys and a call. My first time out I ended up pass shooting some wood ducks, with dismal results, so I went skeet shooting to brush up on my skills a little and get more confidence. So this morning I get up real early and get all setup about 10 minutes before shooting time. Right at opening time I saw a good number of ducks flying around, but they didn't want to come around my area. Eventually, a group of about 15-20 ducks lands about 75-100 yards downwind of me (and the wind was howling, 25+ mph all morning) and just chill out for a while. About 30 minutes later they takeoff and land about 200 yards upwind, not responding to my call (and I don't blame them, I suck!). Well, they only stayed there for a few seconds before taking off and coming back toward me. I started calling again, and got them to circle around a few times, and on the 3rd or 4th circle they decided to commit. I picked the one that was a little out in front, took one shot and dropped him. As they were circling, I could tell they were Blacks, so I didn't try for any others (good thing, eh?) It's not my first duck, but it's the first duck I've called in by myself, and my first black (hey, I got a limit ) Any other duck people around here?
