I made a new friend the other day who has probably one of the best duck hunting tanks I've ever seen. I was fortunate enough to go with him on an early morning hunt and saw what seemed like 1000 ducks, but what made it really unique was his blind...it was a something you would see on Duck Commander on the hunting channel, which is something you normally don't see in Wise County.
It was nice being able to sit down, play on your phone, eat, drink, and fellowship with one another (as they say on Duck Commander)! If it wasn't for the blind I wouldn't have gotten to know everyone as well as I would have if we were in a layout blind, spread out, or natural cover, plus, the hunt was awesome!
Again, one of the best hunts I've ever been on...I give it a 10!
I doubt that most of you know this, but I joined an animal rescue group last year. I was assigned to protect the African Antelope.
Well, last month was my first real action, and fortunately my efforts were captured on the attached video. I hope you enjoy it.
This type of work is rather tiring for a person of my age, but it is most rewarding.
Even so, I hope I don't have to do this more than once a day…
For those of you who do a little duck calling, this has got to be the best duck call I've come across! My smokin' hot wife got this for me for Christmas... I can hit the highs and lows with this thing and it is the easiest call I've found to do the feeding call. It is also a competition call...
This has to be the weirdest thing that ever floated by me in the river.
They were stuck together in death lock, each wanting to kill the other first.
My guess is that the falcon snatched up the tasty snake, and it somehow got its tail around the falcons neck, strangling it in midair causing both of them to crash into the comal river. They are both alive and well, considering.
I think a few more minutes and the snake would have won. The tail was actually tied in a knot around the neck, and getting tighter by the second. I got the snake untied, and well, as you can see, they both made it.
This is another one of those stories you tell, and are always acknowledged with "yeah, right!" Well, heres the proof.
Neither of them bit me or scratched me, the snake didnt want to stop biting the falcons leg, and only let go after I had untied everything else.
I got the water out of the falcons lungs with birdie inversion technique, and stayed with him until he was almost dried off in the sun, and flying a little. Ball of snake and falcon, that is the weirdest thing I have pulled out of the water so far, it beats the wagon wheel!
