We left Monroe LA and it was a balmy 82 degrees with strong south winds. Once we arrived in South Dakota that was no longer the case. As soon as we landed I could feel the plane instantly getting colder. Once we stepped outside it was evident why. It was a brisk 32 degrees with a strong Northwest wind. To say I wasn’t prepared would be an understatement. We hit the ground running and went straight to Cabela’s to buy our licenses and for me to by a blaze orange vest. Being a waterfowl...

I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith."...
Here's a little teal report:
The first 4 days we killed 0. We did not see a single Teal.
But on Day 5, a grand total of 2 Teal came and were shot by an eager Jase with Benelli's new Super Black Eagle 3. After 4 days of no shooting, it's definitely hard to share. According to Phil, Jase jumped up and started shooting before the rest of the Duckmen...
