Well that was fun

Last week Ray and I set bush hooks for cats.  I am learning a good bit but I still learn a lot while fishing with Ray.  This time was no exception.  Most of what I learned I can not share under penalty of death(and not getting to go back).  But one lesson i learned I can share, and it is possibly the most important lesson of all.

A Different Perspective

Bo's First River Hunt

               I guess that age is starting to tell on me.  I'm old enough, and I've hunted enough that I've seen a lot and killed a lot of birds.  I enjoy the hunt, what ever way you hunt ducks, I enjoy it, but I don't see a great deal of new things any more, and I see nothing through young eyes, because let's face it, at forty-two, I just don't have young eyes to look through any more.  Hunting with Bo, hunting with Bo puts a whole new perspective on hunting.  I guess hunting with Bo I get to see old things a first time again through a father's eyes, and I have to admit, watching my son experience things for a first time is a lot more fun than seeing them myself for the first time was.
               Joe bought a boat this fall, and we hunted the river from the boat some this past season.  A few days before Christmas, Joe and I took Bo on his first river hunt.  This was a new experience for the kid, and to be honest, it was probably the most enjoyable duck hunt I've ever been on.

Bo on the River "We should have stayed home"

Growing up I hunted and fished on the river.  I still have many great memories of the PeeDee at sunrise.  However after a grew i did not get to do this as much as I used to.  After my boat messed up I had to rely on others to go.  Well this past November I solved that problem.  I bought a new (to me) boat.  It is a sixteen foot Polar Craft, not to big and not to small, perfect for hunting, fishing, shrimping, and taking the family out for a ride.  Anyone who buys a boat knows that it is an expense and not a whole lot of an investment, unless you enjoy it. 

Lets just say this has been an investment, because i got to witness Bo on the river.
