Day 6: A “rabbit” and some ducks

Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 11.33.16 AMEvery year we take some of the family on a duck hunt on Thanksgiving morning. The family keeps getting bigger but we keep getting ducks. Nephews, kids, brother-in-laws and  other family members, some of us always have a big hunt. And no matter what we have been doing, it seems like we always pull a “rabbit” out of the hat and have a great hunt on this day. Thank goodness, this year was no exception. As you probably know duck hunting has been a bit slow. In fact, we killed more geese than ducks yesterday. I wasn’t too sure what would happen today. But we went up to Shiloh Farm and…

The “rabbit” showed up again. Six of us killed 36 ducks and 10 specks. It was a pile of birds when we finished the morning. And the geese just made it special. They are starting to think I’m really good at this. I hope I don’t ever let them down.

It wasn’t that way for everybody. We had reports of people killing eight or ten, but not a lot of big bunches. We had tons of ducks flying and I don’t know where they came from. We had mallards, teal, gadwalls and pintails. And we even killed a banded snow goose. This was a hunt to be thankful for, for sure.

REMINDER: Tell your friends and duck hunting buddies to check out the daily Simmons Duck Report. Share it on your Facebook or just shoot them an email. We put a lot of effort into it and try to give you a good picture of what is going on with our hunting and with others we hear from. I’d also like to encourage you to check out our Simmons’ Sporting Goods Facebook page. We have all kinds of special offers on there and chances to win prizes.

Be safe out there.
