MUSHY'S MOOCHINGS: DUCK HUNTING IN WEST TENNESSEE

DUCK HUNTING IN WEST TENNESSEE

My son Corey went duck hunting over the holiday with some old college buddies (Doug & Justin) and had a nice time. Day one, they filled their limit, but on day two things slowed down and there was nothing left to do but eat, doze, pull birds out of mice traps, and dart spiders on the ceiling of the blind. A man will always find something to do or kill when bored - a good thing to remember ladies!

In the fall they had a sweaty ol’ time building their “condo” blind in Crockett County Tennessee. A couple of water moccasins came to welcome them to the area, but met quite a resistance to their presence.

I gave my son my .357 prior to the trip and it came in handy while wading in the waters of West Tennessee. (Doug with snake at right.)

The dog is Whisper – a hard working lab that earns her keep.

The spider-dart contest sounds like a lot of time-passing fun! One things for sure---you learn not to MISS really fast, I'll bet! And the same goes for the snake-fest, too!!! Definitely keeps your aiming skills honed.....!

Looks like fun. My causin in PA goes duck hunting all the time. Loves it. Freezes his ass off. I went dove hunting once near here. Seemed like a lot of time spent to get a little tid bit of meat off a little bird. Mostly drinking and a little shooting. But the swamp, snake, spider plinkin' thing sounds scool.

Never did any duck hunting... Always been a whitetail & turkey hunter, but even that I haven't done in quite a while. Like to go goose hunting once.

Looks like a good time was had by all though!

I have never hunt, there's no hunting in the city unless you go hunting for good bargains with the wife when she goes shopping and I hate shopping. So I digress, no hunting for this kid.

T1G not like snakes.

Spider darts? Hilarious.

I want a water moccasin belt.

Whisper looks like a superb beast.
