Giants fans have been blessed with great baseball the last few years. And, once again this year, baseball graced the duck hunting. On Saturday my son-in-law Brett Kelly joined me for a duck hunt at the Kerry Club in the grasslands.
Because he had to work late and also because it appeared that the weather might make a late day hunt work out, we left home late and had breakfast along the way. It was about 11 AM by the time we reached the blind. Most of the hunters had already killed their ducks and headed out, but three blinds were still active.
The hunting was terrific. And, when the game started we tuned in for a great Giant victory. We came home with our sprig, a few teal and a couple spoonies. In addition we stopped for a steak dinner and watched most of the remainder of the game, which featured a great comeback victory.
Brett snapped this photo of me and Lola on the way back from retrieving a sprig that sailed a ways in the wind.
Earlier I took a shot of Brett with some of his ducks.
Large flocks of pintail circled us all afternoon. The stiff wind made shooting a challenge, but we got our birds.
Tomorrow will be the last day of baseball in 2014 and Giant fans have been blessed with maximum baseball. What good fortune. Win or lose tomorrow it has been a great ride.
