Duck & Goose Season

This is opening day (locally) of the duck and goose season. The neighborhood sounds like the London Blitz--shotguns popping off everywhere--and my Labrador Retrievers (who have never hunted) went all "birdy" this morning.

It's in the blood.

I agree it's in the blood, Greg' I used to have a G.S.H. Pointer called Oscar (sadly he died in May). He had never pointed professionally so to speak but whenever we walked he would even point at bumblebees. What would we do without our dogs?

My little town always goes a little nuts on opening days. I remember a few years ago on opening day of shotgun for deer and the liquor store was full of oranged-hatted men who had given up, and there were lots of pickup trucks crusing the few blocks of town (population 2,000) with their kill on display. I wrote a poem about it, but can't seem to find it.
