THERE?IS nothing better to see on an early autumn morning than a young duck hunter grinning ear to ear while holding a nice mixed bag of ducks taken with unerring aim a scarce two hours into the season’s first day.

Okay, so technically last Saturday would still qualify as late summer and the unerring aim part might be just a bit of an exaggeration, but the wide grin on the face of a young hunter is still as good a sight to an old duck hunter as ever there has been.

Saturday marked the opening of the two-day youth duck hunt in Wisconsin, and well before the 6:06 opening minute my young partner, Nate, and I were securely ensconced in a blind built at the end of a balsam point a week earlier.

Two goose decoys had been placed by Nate according to the old hunter’s instructions
