Looking ahead in the off-season, with hopes for a new season
A new year is upon us, bringing fresh hope and the promise of better days. And as many duck hunters finish their campaigns and slip into the off-season, I think it’s fitting to reflect on another year and look forward to the next one. Here’s what I’m wishing for in the 2020 season.
1. To spring awake at 3 a.m. and be genuinely excited about the day.
2. To toss my dad’s hand-carved decoys in one more Dakota slough.
