At Least I Can Still Buy Black Cloud

    If you think for one second you will be able to walk into a gun store this week and buy what ever gun you want, you are mistaken.  On Wednesday I walked into my local gun store to pick up some Federal Black Cloud BB's for sea duck gunning and I was greeted to bare racks.

A Little Loony

I was able to get out and Duck hunt this morning.  I was very comfortable out on the water today.  It was not cold or windy or damp.  It was just nice to be out and about.  I have been using a generic decoy set up for a few years and it does OK.  I run 18 over sized blue bills, 4 Buffleheads, and 2 merganser decoys.  With that said I was very surprised to see a Loon in his full battleship grey winter plumage touch down into my decoys.  I was shocked because they are a big bird and strikingly sleek looking.  He stayed around my decoys for 5 minutes or so before paddling off.  I was able to watch him make the loon call, which by the way, is extremely loud.
