So, now it´s time for me to write my first post ever, and I´m not used to write a lot so what I lack in words, I complete with pictures.
This first post of mine will be about me and my twin brother.
We decided that we would spend an afternoon together out hunting yesterday. So we took our gear and went down to the lake nearby to see if we could get some ducks. It was a bit chilly overcast day, with a little rain now and then. But I would say that is the perfect hunting weather, not to warm and sweaty.
This is my brother, Daniel. He´s a very good hunter and fisherman, and because I was on his hunting grounds, he was the guide for the day. Even tough I did grow up here too, he knows the grounds better.
First we tried to just walk along the shoreline, to see if we could get som ducks flying. It is quite exciting to go slowly on edge through the reeds, and not knowing when or where a duck would fly up. Unfortunately the sneaking around in the reed didn't work. So we went back to get Daniels boat and go out on the lake..
..an hour later maybe after padeling around I saw a duck lift from the reeds about 25 meters away from us. I took the shot and the duck went down. It was a fullgrown female mallard, and my first duck this autumn. We were out on the lake a couple of hours, but didn't get eny more, even tough we saw some far away.
But we were happy anyhow.
We went back home, ate some well-made waffles with blueberrys and cream, to get our strength back.
The weather was still cloudy and it did rain a bit, but a little rain haven't killed enyone. So we went back out, this time to the woods to hunt pigeons.
Walking around in a forest is always nice, it´s so peaceful, you just hear the wind in the trees and birds chirping. However, after finding us the right place, we put out some pigeon decoys on a field, after that it was just to sit and wait, and we waited and waited.
Daniel had this pigeon birdcaller, so he tryed to lure the birds to us, but we didn't see any..
..After a while, we gave up, and started to walk home, satisfied with the day well spent together out in the nature. To hunt is not always about to get to shoot something, I should say that the best part is to be out in the nature that God gave us.
And now we can see forward to a nice ecological dinner with duck breast on the meny.
