Well this was my opening weekend!
Today I was able to get the Wavewalk out and do an archery hunt.
This was a brand new spot for me. I will be going back to it! Had some things go wrong in the beginning (forgot some parts) so had to head to a store before the field so I didn’t get in the water until 9ish.
Having never hunted it, my first choice of spot was not the best. After about an hour I moved. While I was getting settled and the blind back up ducks came in (of course before I was ready). But I soon got in and a pair came right in, and I got one from 30 yards. I just waded out and picked her up.
Had some other birds come in but finished at 60 yards instead of landing in the hole.
The spot will hunt better on an outgoing to low tide, so I expect to do better next time.
Here are pics of the archery hunt.

I think a bit more camo burlap is in order. The cell phone camera messes up the color a little bit but it still needs to be dealt with.
Good start to the season! Can’t wait for next week. I might actually get set up before shoot time and who knows , maybe get more than a single!
