Day six: A Happy Thanksgiving from the duck blinds

Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 6.19.44 PMSometimes a picture says it all. The photo above was from our family Thanksgiving hunt and we had a blast. There were a lot of ducks flying and we hunted three blinds. One blind got 30, another 24 and another 22.  They were mostly teal, but we had a few mallards and gadwalls.

It was foggy early and that made them hard to see and there wasn’t any wind. If we would have had wind, I think every blind would have limited out. As it was, we finished by 8:30 and left them along after that. The good news for the weekend is that there are at least teal and a few other big ducks coming in. The weather will be a little tricky, but I hope you get to go after them.


We’ve got so much to be thankful for in this country. Stop and make sure you give thanks for all we have and that our country and it’s freedoms will survive for future generations. The very core of our rights as Americans are being attacked, especially the right to bear arms and pursuit of our outdoor sports.  So this year’s Happy Thanksgiving comes with a dual message: first, enjoy and be thankful; second, be willing to work to preserve your freedoms.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Simmons’ Sporting Goods Family.

Enjoy, be safe…and shoot some ducks.
