Thanks to Brad (Billybob7059) for taking me out yesterday! We got to our spot a little late around 6:15 and saw another guy setting up his dekes overlooking an adjacent cove. We were a bit worried because the guy had like a decoy flock of 25 and we had only six to work with. Didn't see much fly all morning, but heard a couple early honks closer to sunrise. We sat there, chatted, and ate trail mix all morning. Brad called relentlessly, but nothing. Didn't hear a squeak out of the other hunter all day. Then around 10 AM, we hear honking and loner appears over the trees behind us. Brad starts calling it and says "Get your gun!" It passes over our flock, hangs a right turn and starts on a landing trajectory towards the other guy's decoys. Still no call from the other hunter. Brad starts calling again and honker realizes that the sound was coming from somewhere else. The bird hangs a U-turn and proceeds to land at our setup, opening up its wings! It was the very first load fired out a brand new and unproven gun and I couldn't be more excited! The heart was beating so hard. I am hooked on waterfowling for sure. First gun, first hunt, first round fired, and at last, I bag my first Canadian. It was great to be out! First one!
