December 2017. Futch Game Lands. Ice. Lots of ice.
We may've taken the wrong dike. Despite hunting there before. Multiple times. Sweating, after hauling loads of decoys and gear. Sweating in the sub-freezing air. The reward was having to ice to break.
But don't you worry. It worked out just fine . . . good times with good buddies and a few teal birds.
More than a few teal . . .
I won't forget it.
