This old Codger is at least 80... Some of his old runnin' buddies claim he is even older. He got a divorce over crow season in 69(She put up with him hunting every day of duck season but drew the line at crow season.) He quit duck hunting in 78 to get married and was good till he fell off the wagon in 05.... We have been hunting together ever since. He is a tough nut. We walk in sometimes over 1800 yards on a dry year. I still love to hunt on the bad weather days so even in the boat can be rough. His biggest surprise is the amount of hunters these days. In the 60s and 70s they hardly ever saw anyone and thought five rigs was a crowd, These days, the same area with have 75+ groups. As for myself, I used to hunt 3+ days a week where I would hunt till 9 am then go to work and not get home till 8-10 pm at night only to get up at 4 am to do it again... I usually skip those hunts unless it is a quick and easy spot these days. I would rather get done with work and spend all day on a day off.
